Trumpeter Martin Dahanukar leads his quartet in these nine original pieces that reflect upon the ambiguity of French New Wave cinema, resulting in an album that ranges from sharp and striking to melancholic and introverted from one moment to the next.
Melodies fill the night air. The band around trumpeter Trompeter Martin Dahanukar plays rare classics, latinesque pearsl but as well originals of dream-like touch. The earthy drive is provided by percussionist Willy Kotoun and bassist Philipp Moll. Tense and mysterous trumpet tones float above the sound of a congenial rhythm group, completed by lyric pianist youngster Michael Haudenschild. The band’s poetic “images” create an emotionally charged atmosphere, whose suspense recalls stills of the Nouvelle Vague.
