O’s Notes: Kartet is Hubert Dupont (b), Benoit Delbecq (q), Chander Sardjoe (d) and Guillaume Orti (sax). This is their 5th release in as many years. The music is free fusion that is painted on an open landscape with lots of air between the instruments. It is more relaxing with less fury than many of the avant-garde recordings. It is easy to focus on each of the players at any given time and get inside their head. But we still can’t figure out what they are thinking! Nevertheless, we found The Bay Window suitable for meditating and listening. It is also a well-recorded SACD.
