Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Only 23 years old, Liège-based drummer Antoine Pierre is already a major figure in the European jazz scene. Drummer for Philip Catherine, as well as the project Taxiwars with Tom Barman, Urbex is his first project as a leader, composer, and arranger. Antoine invents arrangements that are rich and dense, alternating between gentler atmospheres and spiraling climaxes.
