Revisité

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David R. Adler
The seven tracks on Revisité are "remixes" of tunes that Erik Truffaz, the adventurous French trumpeter, previously explored with his jazz quartet. In a bid to crosspollinate jazz with new sounds being explored in ambient and electronica, Truffaz enlists the talents of six guest artists to reinterpret his work through their own experimental points of view. Like Truffaz himself, these musical seekers hail from Europe -- Pierre Audétat, Alex Gopher, Pierre Henry, Goo, and Bugge Wesseltoft, as well as Mobile in Motion Christophe Calpini and Fred Hashadourian, which splits "The Dawn" into two parts that respectively open and close the album.

Wesseltoft's dark blend of Rhodes, acoustic bass, drum samples, and rap vocal snippets on "Sweet Mercy" represents a new kind of musical mosaic, an idea with a very promising future.
