Notes & Reviews:

This is French composer and upright bass player, Florent Ghys 1st release with Cantaloupe Music. He studied double bass under Thierry Barbé in Paris. The purpose of this album was to create a "multiple-me" ensemble, as he calls it. "I know multi-track recording will never replace live recording," says Florent, "but multi-tracking was an interesting starting point to see if I was going to change my compositional process while writing strictly for me."

WQXR (New York)
Even if you didn't know Florent Ghys's provenance (he was born in Lyon, France), you'd be able to immediately detect some Gallic roots in his newest, and impossibly chic EP, Baroque Tardif: Soli. Take, for instance, the album's opening - a staccato upright bass (Ghys) accompanied with rhythmic clapping, a combination that wouldn't be out of place in a smoky, underground Latin Quarter café.
