I suppose it's accurate to say that this ensemble would be considered a super group in Europe. I suppose it's also accurate to state that I consider Michel Portal to be one of my five favourite living horn players.
This album is billed as a concert led by drummer Daniel Humair but it's really a group effort. All are French except for Joachim Kuhn, who is German. None of them are huge jazz stars in North America but they should be. This is a great live performance!
