O’s Notes: Stade is Pierce Audétat (keyboards) and Christophe Calpini (drums). They perform a freestyle mix alternating with French trumpeter Erik Truffaz, Swiss harmonica master Gregoire Maret and New York guitarist Elliot Sharp. This eclectic high-octane mix has a lot of drive but not quite in the headache category. The pulsating beats on “Rats In The Car” punctuate the mood of the song. We liked the syncopated groove of Retired Kinky Ballerines” and “My Parrot Entombment”. It sounds better than you may imagine.
