It’s no secret we love Toulouse’s experimental pop band Aquaserge, whose latest album Laisse ça être, made it to our 15 Picks of 2017. Like on the record, they are a wonder to behold live, each and all of its five members effortlessly displaying their outstanding musicianship and improvisational sensibilities. So we’re excited to hear they have a new record arriving this Spring, Déjà-Vous? (‘you, already?’). Featuring live renditions of eight tracks, including four from Laisse ça être, the upcoming Déjà-Vous? is the fruit of recordings the quintet made during several shows in 2016 and 2017, some of which accompanied by a 3-piece horn section.
Preceding the record release on April 27th through Crammed Discs, and serving as a wonderful introduction to Déjà-Vous?, Aquaserge have shared their impromptu version of the 30’s popular jazz standard ‘My Funny Valentine’. We simply can’t stop playing it.
