What do elephants dream of ? Of oppressive heat, the smell of the forests, of eastern dancers, the call of a tropical bird. At least that's what Rêve d'Eléphant suspects. This new Walloon group's repertoire couldn't be more idiosyncratic, confronting jazz with world music in a truly fascinating fashion.
This CD is a magic box brim-full with sound, in which Jean-Yves Evrard's creaking guitar is just as vocal as the melodious flute lines and the all-embracing trumpets - the lot strung together by means of compelling percussion parts. Rêve d'Eléphant Orchestra : the jungle on stage!
