Album Notes
CIRCUM GRAND ORCHESTRA is indeed not your ordinary jazz band. When the twelve musicians from CIRCUM, a variable-shaped posse, join forces, you get a double rhythm section (two guitars, two basses, two drums and a piano), reinforced by a powerful wind/brass section of five, and a repertoire which goes from free-form jazz to saucy songs. The result is intense music with a rock’n’roll energy, a music that dares to play, and to free itself from stylistic bonds.
This out-of-the-ordinary band was bound to make an extraordinary record: born from their meeting with singer CHARLENE MARTIN, this is the result of a year-long work on the song format, and more precisely on French chanson (a definite style in itself), a new territory for a music that was mainly instrumental.
The challenge behind this music, written in 2004 by OLIVIER BENOIT, SEBASTIEN BEAUMONT, CHRISTOPHE HACHE et PETER ORINS, was to offer new and contemporary vocal jazz, without any compromise, and with the legacy of free jazz and rock’n’roll in mind.
