I have THE DAWN, its a bit short but a great aural experience. This album though, takes the sound concept even further. Live Drums and percussion take form of acoustic drum n' bass and hip hop(seigfried is brilliant), and the time signatures are not always 4/4, so thats kind of interesting. Muller on the piano and fender rhodes is as imaginative in his lines and chord progressions as could be, the bass is agressive and makes a statement, Nya is philosophical in his rapping, die hard hip hop fans may find this kind of music a tough swallow, but for creative and progressive minds, this just breaks any genre barriers. Eric truffazs' lines are a bit miles davis like on some songs, but he flows from mood to mood and is relentless; the blowing technique he uses is kind of unique because it sounds quite ambient and soft and smooth as opposed to the usually heard brassy timbre.

This is an essential keep for any collector of jazz and cutting edge sounds and rhythms.

This is a sometimes funky, sometimes groovy, always minimalist jazz entry from French Trumpet master Erik Truffaz. Very much acoustic drum and bass, it features rare rap offerings from Nya, none of them intruding into these smooth sounds.

Listen to this pure acoustic sound of bass & drums! it is a pleasure to hear such groovy sounds! add a Miles style trumpet with some reverb shake it with some rap and you get the best flavour of new european jazz... to be contnued.

This is a superb album, with a great drum'n'bass drummer (with whom I worked I'm proud to say !!)...
Jazz and drum'n'bass are superbly blended in these finely composed tunes, and all of it is played with live instruments, which gives it that extra feel... You'll find a little classic jazz, some powerful bass lines, some awesome drumming, some superb piano work, an ambient trumpet, some great intros, a small masterpiece...
I strongly recommend you get this CD, should you like jazz, drum'n'bass, ambient or the like, this album will cater for your needs. This is definitely the best Truffaz effort so far (to my mind), although "the Dawn" is good too, if not a little short.
"The Mask" was made for the American market and contains only instrumental work (however all the tunes come from "Bending New Corners" and "the Dawn"), since Blue Note apparently thought that the singer was superfluous on the tunes on which he appears. I personnally don't agree with Blue Note on that one, and strongly recommend you get "Bending New Corners" !!
