Drummer Michel Blanc with fellow members of Push the Triangle in an amazing album of avant jazz-rock that push the envelope on genre bending technical chops.

Blanc, Michel
Le Passage Eclair

Blanc, Michel: Le Passage Eclair (D'Autres Cordes)
Label: D'Autres Cordes    
Released in: France    

"This French band pushes the envelope while garnering high-marks for originality and breadth of implementation. Franck Vigroux cranks out atypical avant-rock sounds from his electric guitar and turntables. As the remainder of the band comprises, cornet- drums-saxophone-vocals. It's easily one of the more captivating music marvels of 2005, where the band's experimentalism spans rock, free-jazz, and classical concepts. Howling guitars seek a happy medium with difficult time navigations and wild jazz parts. The ensemble's genre bashing transforms into an unswerving makeup, spiced with stabs at humor and a quasi, electronic-organic tone. They even fuse indigenous folk/rock musings into the heart of matters."-Glenn Astarita
