In 2010, CGO proudly celebrates its 10th anniversary and releases a second record on Circum-Disc. "Le Ravissement" is the fruit of a new project. After a work centered on "songs" and another "monumental" project with Feldspath (Circum Grand Orchestra + la Pieuvre), the orchestra returns to a purely instrumental form, based on a wide-ranged, rhythmic and lyrical writing, composed mainly by Olivier Benoit. The 6 tracks of the album also allow the band's members to show their qualities as improvisers.
CGO is an outstanding group on several accounts. These 12 musicians from the Circum collective form a double rhythm section--2 guitarists, 2 bassists, 2 drummers and one pianist--supporting a strong, vigorous 5 horn section. The band
delivers rich and varying compositions, from the most experimental jazz to uninhibited songs. The result is a dense and powerful music, always ready to play with itself and free itself from stylistic constraints.
