Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Following "The World Begins Today", recorded with Tigran Hamasyan, Jeff Ballard and Sam Minaie, and praised worldwide, Olivier Bogé now offers a very personal new recording, Expanded Places, in which his expressivity is driven at its most. Playing the saxophone, the piano, guitars, fender Rhodes and vocals, Olivier Bogé has also gathered some of the greatest musicians of his entourage. The result is a series of nine oneiric and fascinating compositions.
Personnel: Karl Jannuska (drums); Olivier Bogé (vocals, guitar, saxophone, piano, Fender Rhodes piano).
