Here's another round of sumptuously spacious French jazz rock from this outfit featuring Jean-Francois Capon of Baroque jazz Trio, this one the last of their three releases. Chroniques Terrestres does hew rather closer to the jazz end of the jazz rock spectrum than Arkham, the vibe here having a certain akin with both NWW-listers Cohelmec Ensemble and Nucleus circa their debut, "Elastic Rock". Dreamy, reflective and languorously lovely stuff.
