Pierre Labbé 4tet, resolutely plural form of jazz
Finalist for the 2010 Opus prize awarded for its recording Manivelle, the quartet performs compositions by Pierre Labbé, largely transcend the boundaries of that idiom. Between often broad themes, we hear the guitar soaring unexpectedly, the drummer’s beat, the solid double-bass and lyrical flights of the saxophone.
