Erik Truffaz - Arkhangelsk

Eric Trufffaz and quartet are already well established stars of the European jazz circuit. The left-field French trumpeter has built is reputation on a series of albums that explore the post-Miles landscape of ambient-funk jazz that is at the same time darkly brooding and yet has a melancholic, melodic beauty. As avid fans of the great Chet Baker, they have now recorded their most complete work to date - an album that explores the meeting point between instrumentals and voices and which features the incomparable Ed Harcourt - another Chet Baker devotee - alongside French singer Christophe and their regular rapper, Nya. Together they have created a uniquely cool blend of jazz, electronica, ambient grooves and great songs.
