Ed Buckley This is a nice set of pieces built on interlocking rhythmic patterns and borrowing from diverse sources. The guest scat work is riveting, and this, overall, is really well done. Dillon, on whose page I found it, calls it progressive jazz., which I find an interesting way of describing it. I'll have to steal it from him! :-)

Dillon Ethier More progressive jazz from France. This group braids angular polyrhythms with lilting melodies/solos along with a few surprises including an exquisite guest scat vocalist on a couple tracks for an intriguingly diverse overall package. Favorite track: Polymorphisme.

Circonflexe: cyclic claves, flexed execution, circumspect circles. The concept of this album revolves around claves, rhythmic patterns which unite the musicians and distinguish each track. Some tracks are based on a simple clave such as 1 2 3 2 or RER, while others feature complex patterns like in the introduction of 8 plus 7 for which the album artwork gives the score. Polyrhythms are particularly present throughout 2 virgule 4 and reach an interesting arpeggio step before the last theme. Triades concludes the album with a symmetric ascending and descending chord progression highlighted by a tune jointly played by 4 melodic instruments.

This album features two guests: Olivier Koundouno and YéYé Toon. Olivier Koundouno's cello dances on the interweaving background of MMM, a trance balanced between the written score and improvisations. YéYé Toon's unique scatting style is featured in Polymorphisme, a multiple time scale tune, and in Daga dit Gouda, a piece based on a scattered jungle drum line.
