These are videos that I like: Thomas Carbou – “Mademoiselle Elle”


Thomas Carbou - "Other Colors of Hekate"Today’s featured video is from Thomas Carbou’s Hekátê Trio, performing the song “Mademoiselle Elle” live at the Montreal Jazz Festival (2014).

For this performance, the trio is joined by saxophonist David Binney, which is not only a treat in itself, but also relevant to Carbou’s latest recording, Other Colors of Hekátê, one of this week’s This Is Jazz Today recommendations.

And though the personnel do change from this performance versus the new release, the overall sound is remarkably consistent, and this’ll give you a pretty decent sense of what you’re getting into.

Now, here’s that video…

Your video personnel:  Thomas Carbou (8-string guitar), Erik Hove (sax), Evan Tighe (drums) and guest: David Binney (sax).


Worth noting that the other band members have all received nice write-ups on this site (and my Wondering Sound column), so definitely spend some time on Bird is the Worm checking them out.

I hope your week is off to a great start.
