Mastered by John Davis

at Metropolis studios, London

P o l y M o r p h o s i s   [Urban jazz trip]   is a patchwork made of jazz, soul, funk, gospel, organised on the basis of themes composed by CLaude EVence JAnssens, blended with variations on jazz standards, paraphrases of J.S.Bach and influences of various blues guitar players, groovy bass players and funky drummers, with the contribution of singers and instrumentalists gathered around the project.
A surprising interpenetrations game where standards themes take unexpected forms over the variations which they are subjected and depending on the new harmonic context in which they appear. The whole thing is overhanging a groovy background tinged with jungle-jazz and brass band tones.
