Normand 5, Eric: Sur Un Fil (Setola Di Maiale)
Label: Setola Di Maiale    
Released in: Canada    

"The Italian microlabel Setola di Maiale just released an excellent (yes, excellent) record by Rimouski-based bassist Éric Normand. In October 2009, Normand assembled a stellar quintet to record three of his own compositions and an original rereading of John Tchicai's Fields, Cows and Flowers. He is surrounded by Jean Derome, Michel F Côté, James Darling (cello) and Antoine Létourneau-Berger (vibes and cymbals). On Sur un fil, Normand deploys Spartan and enlightened compositional skills, and his score leaves plenty of room for all instrumentalists to showcase their extended techniques. Great level of interaction between musicians, and there's something magic going on between them and the score. A demanding but highly satisfying listen. Bravo."-François Couture, Monsieur Délire
