Album selection: Gard Nilssen's Supersonic Orchestra, David Bowie, Haim, Bab L'Bluz
Three drummers, including the leader of this Supersonic Orchestra, the Norwegian Gard Nilssen, three double bassists, seven saxophonists, two trumpeters and a trombonist.From the opening of Premium Processing Fee, we are carried away by a musical whirlwind, the expressive force of this group that brings together some of the most confident performers on the Nordic scene (including saxophonist Hanna Paulsberg and trumpet player Goran Kajfes, both already celebrated on our pages) .If the name of the Supersonic Orchestra is a nod to the Super -Sonic Jazz, from Sun Ra, album from 1956 still very wise for the pianist, and to the big free festivals of his Arkestra, there is here an obvious attachment to the great forms led by Charles Mingus (Teppen Dance, Jack), in particular in the relationship between spontaneity and the writing of solo propulsions and sound density.Sylvain Siclier

This title of Open the Dog, pronounced roughly in the final litany of David Bowie's song All the Madmen (1970) - "Zane, Zane, Zane/Open the Dog" - had already been used for a pirate record.Released in 1996, the official Open the Dog offers different content, mainly taken from a concert at the Starplex Amphitheater, in Dallas (Texas), on October 13, 1995.For the American part, from September to October, of its international tour which accompanies the release of his 1.Outside (The Nathan Adler Diaries: A Hyper-Cycle), Bowie chose in the first part the group Nine Inch Nails.Which, after his performance, was joined by Bowie and his group for a few titles.Of this collaboration, no trace here - there are pirate recordings.But the fourteen titles of the only Bowie with his group (including guitarist Reeves Gabrels, keyboardist Mike Garson, bassist Gail Ann Dorsey), in its most experimental period, on record and in concert, are sufficient nt powerful to compensate for this lack.Those of 1.Outside with the intensity increased by the concert and old titles are rearranged in a sometimes radical way.In addition, two extracts from another concert, which appeared on a single CD..Yes.
