Album: Manu Katché, Manu Katché (ECM)
Sunday 21 October 2012
French drummer Katché has replaced Jason Rebello and Pino Palladino with a Hammond organ (played by Jim Watson), and reunited saxophonist Tore Brunborg with trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer, with whom he played in Masqualero three decades ago.
Over 10 tracks that mix an almost Weather Report-like density of sound with languid funk and off-centre horn harmonies, the band cooks. For the closing piece, Katché switches to chill-out piano.
