ZENOUDA, HERVE: Demain, des l'aube
A long time since the last - so a welcome appearance. 13 pieces, mosty written, mostly featuring, in various combinations, piano, electric guitar, percussion, some saxophone, some bass. Melodic generally, but not invariably; fairly minimal, or at least uncluttered; always musical. Defined snapshots, mostly very successful. The percussion duo for instance and the opening track never put a foot wrong. Open structured but always clear and finished. A fine collection. Plus 4 videos (quicktime) of live performances. Excellent.
