Le Rex - Wild Man

Let me draw your attention to another great record released recently on Cuneiform Records. "Wild Man" is the third album by experimental brass group Le Rex from Switzerland and one that certainly doesn't brake with the label's exciting jazz tradition.

Consisting of drums, tuba, trombone, tuba, alto and tenor saxophone this group develops a highly unique and dynamic sound which reaches from experimental structures to hymn-like passages and uptempo brass groovers - and sometimes all put together in one track. Apparently a trip to Chicago influenced the group to this release drawing inspiration from the iconic Art Ensemble Of Chicago. The influences can be heard though there is certainly a very individual vibe going on in "Wild Man". Just take a tune like "Sugar Maple"; the grooving rythm patterns, the improvisations and the classical jazz arrangements form an exciting blend and truly progressive jazz music.

Stream the album on Bandcamp.
