O’s Notes: Young sax player Alex Terrier leads a band with Roy Assaf (p), Franois Moutin (b) and Steve Davis (d). They perform eleven original compositions. We liked the syncopated interaction between the rhythm section on “E.S.B. And “Ecstasy” while Alex places a cool melody on top. “Le Miroir Des Anges Dégusés” is another winner including guitarist Akira Ishiguro. Edouard Brenneisen also plays guitar on a couple of tracks notably “Thompkins Square”. This combination of swinging bebop and cool fusion places Terrier in the midst of the jazz scene as a talent to watch.
