O’s Notes: Guest vocalist Days delivers spoken word on the opener “Monday, The 26th” (and four other tracks). It comes on top of cool, contemporary jazz rhythms from pianist, sound designer, leader Cedric Hanriot with Bertrand Bernard (b), and Ellie Martin Charriere (d, perc). They mix the lyrical tracks with pure instrumentals in the 13-song session. Hanriot’s piano exchanges standout, especially on “Water”, and the funky “Souly” featuring Bernard. Time Is Color is an album that makes Cedric Hanriot a relevant artist in edgy contemporary jazz space.
