Scottish Bill Wells Octet( trumpet, sax,flutes, tuba,harmonica,piano,bass, guitar, percussion, voice) plays slow jazzy acoustic elegiac pieces that recall many things from music and life: retro atmospheres, avant-garde, soundtracks, half abandoned thoughts, even lounge moods and...Sushil K Dade (future pilot aka) adds them some contemporary (for its time) exp-electronica edge. The whole attempt keeps a friendly asymmetry that sounds interesting. "Requiem pour un con "(S . Gainsbourg) is covered here , and the closing track also has a nice art-ambient-ethno-ethereal touch. Ten themes they fit together by being free to rehabilitate a different each time picture puzzle.
