A very beautiful journey, calm, deep, and honnestly, a little masterpiece coming from Canada.

The album is well produced, arrangement clever. As I'm a fan of the old big band from the 70's, I can feel some influences, but it's not a copy of all those bands. No, this LP sounds actual : a very nice piece of music, sort of little opera sometimes.

With no comparison of the music itself, if you like Patrick Watson, you should like Ozark Henry as well.
