An impulsive and colorful great work.

The tracks don’t sum up an esthetic, but serve as vehicle for all styles of Jazz: New Orleans, Swing, Be Bop, Hard Bop, Free, Modal or ethnic traditions are all levers used by Laurent Mignard to offer us music that alternates between the figurative and the abstract.

CHOCTAW SUITE, with hints of Don CHERRY, is a homage to the Indians of North America and their quest for a natural life.

CITY SUITE is a kind of way of looking at the city, its moments of oppression, elegance, irony or intense action.

ALTER EGO SUITE harks back to the duo Don Cherry / Ornette Coleman: 20 minutes of optimism laced with multiple modes of improvisation.
