Julian’s classical background mixes with his jazz sensibilities to produce an intriguing blend of the two musical styles, exemplified by the lilting opener Prélude, a piece that combines a flute-led madrigal with slinky jazz bass to great effect....
It is interesting to note that the jazz and classical influences of the first part of the album are now seemingly left behind, as space debris floats through the cosmic drift of Non-Sens, only for those tropes to return for the main part of the tune, a gorgeous otherworldly piece of jazz-chamber rock that slowly becomes ever more confident, with some great cornet blowing from Médéric Collignon.
