Album: Aubes et Crépuscules
Label: Jazz & People
Style: Modern post-bop
Favorite Track: “Rêverie”
Music from: Paris, France
What I like about it: I like how little hints of a folk-jazz sound pop up from time to time, and how they accentuate the modern sound with something a bit rustic. I like how even the up-tempo pieces seem to beat with the heart of a ballad, as if the quintet Awake sees a love song everywhere they look. When the ensemble turns the heat up, I like how it’s never with the intention to burn, only to mesmerize.
