FRED DELPLANCQ QUARTET / Horizons / N° cat. HR002 - UPC 5057302167035
After a hiatus spanning over five years since his first two acclaimed albums, "Witches Dance" in 2004 and "Talisman" in 2007, Fred Delplancq makes a return with an album of new compositions.
In "Horizons", the unmistakable mark of growth and maturity permeates the music, as Delplancq's wealth of experience accumulated throughout his career pays off once again.
Whether experienced live or in the studio, the quartet exudes a spellbinding energy, leaving no soul unaffected.
The repertoire is mainly made up of original compositions, but also includes an arrangement of the cherished French song "Il a neigé sur yesterday".
Brilliantly orchestrated, the songs weave in and out of Fred's beloved styles, with improvisations that are akin to real bubbling of life.
