Coming from Minneapolis, US, Fantastic Merlins plays between Avant-Garde Jazz and new music. This quartet offers us a sublime and beautiful album, mostly composed of interpretations of songs by Leonard Cohen, with a few original tunes of them inspired by his work thrown in as well. Listening to this release is like walking down an alley in a film noir: shadowy characters, ambiguous motives, and cliffhanger moments abound. Both dissonant and resonant, Fantastic Merlins effortlessly weave together the dark and the light, the dangerous and innocent. Their cinematic sound coalesces organically in an exquisite tension between Jazz and chamber music, surprising listeners as often as it soothes. French cellist Daniel Levin (2) joined the band for a tour of France in November 2010, and is the permanent fourth member of the band.And about the booklet drawn by French artist Stéphane Levallois, it could not be more beautiful... both music and drawings are in osmose.HIGHLY RECOMMANDED !
