As the day rolled along, the ensemble shifted shape into a number of subsets that demonstrated a more jazz-flavored ambiance, including the serene and cascading "Bleu Nuit" and the west-coast cool jazz vibe of "Highway," among others.
While the latter pieces differ thematically and stylistically from the larger ensemble works, they shared a similarly engaging character and sense of constant motion which greatly demonstrated the variety of Pierre's music and his aptitude for writing in a range of styles.
With these sessions in the rear-view mirror as we move towards post-production, I can say that this was one of my favorite recordings we've done to date and we're all excited for everyone else to hear Pierre's latest work. Stay tuned for news and updates leading up to the release of VOYAGE in 2015.
