O’s Notes: Jazz vocalist Loïs Levan blends his voice into the rich tones of his sextet. They take a minimalist approach bleeding in the full band as needed to deliver a dynamic presentation notably on “Happenings Before Dawn”. The recording sounds like it was done in a church with great acoustics. Sandrine Marchetti (p), Manu Domergue (mellophone, French horn), Roland Merlinc (d), Leïla Renault (b) and Thomas Mayade (t) all deliver strong performances. Levan composed most of the music for The Other Side, dominated by dark and eerie moods.
