Camembert "Clacosmique EP"
Camembert "Clacosmique EP"

From Strasbourg, France comes this remarkable group with a unique and amazing instrumentation. Composer Pierre Wawrzyniak plays bass & acoustic guitar. Then we have a drummer (Philemon Walter) and an electric guitarist (Vincent Sexauer), no surprises there. Then we have a trombonist (Fabrice Toussaint) who also plays great vibraphone & xylophone + a trumpet player who doubles on digeridoo(!) (Bertrand Eber) and the last player totally from left field, concert harp played by Guillaume Gravelin. Plus a guest on bass trombone on three of the tracks. The orchestrations are very unusual and beautiful weaving the horns and electric guitar around the harp & mallet percussion to the best effect. Think Zappa's best instrumental sections from "One Size Fits All" layered with some zeuhl jazz ala Zao and a little bit Canterbury in the quieter sections perhaps recalling Gilgamesh. The compositions rule! Very melodic but excitingly rhythmic at the same time. I cannot wait for their full length album in 2010! This "EP" clocks in at just under 33 minutes and is worth twice the $10 price. Only half the tracks here will be on the full length (75 minute) disc next year so don't delay to pick this up thinking that you'll get it all when the debut album comes out. (Also remember that back in the 60s & 70s this would've been a full length album in itself!) It comes in a mini-LP sleeve but the disc is a real CD (not a CDR) and the quality of the music is stellar! One of the best releases we have heard at ZNR in many months!! Highest recommendation!
