Sophie on this album brings together original, Alour different periods of his life compositions. One as "Shaker" or "Joke" were written for Rhoda Scott, they are a nod to the 60s, pivotal years for the beginnings of funk (Jimmy Smith, Lonnie Smith ...).
Others, however, are more of an invoice rock, they were designed for a different instrumentation, bass trio, drums, sax quartet or piano and find themselves diverted, magnified by the new orchestration and in particular the organ, color exuberant, happy screaming, looking like a modern dandy. This quickfire album proves full of joy, and self-deprecating references to jazz great epics.
For this adventure, Sophie Alour is surrounded by two friends, Frederic Nardin the organ and Frédéric Pasqua drums. Frédéric Pasqua is shown on the previous album "geography of dreams" while Frederic Nardin is a new recruit in his world, both are proving to be playmates of the first order for this new project. In addition, Sophie Alour here gives a great place to soprano and thus adds a new color to its expressiveness.
