Fitting together like hand in glove, the five musicians of the Cohelmec Ensemle build something together, rather than trying to destroy an established order, as was the done thing at the start of the 1970s. In France there was a tendency to explore an imaginary folklore which allowed certain elements of free jazz to be circumvented without being ignored. Which is why we can be reminded of, in the melody of 'Hippotigris Zebra Zebra' when played with collective intensity, the best of American cosmic jazz, while also occasionally hearing McCoy Tyner or even Cecil Taylor under the fingers of Dominique Elbaz, or the vibraphone of Walt Dickerson evoked by Jean-Louis Méchali. Limited to 700 copies in a gatefold sleeve with an obi. The LP was originally released in 1971.
