Maneige - ''Maneige''{1975}[Canada](Quebecois Fusion)

Just four mostly instrumental tracks (there is some singing into one track and it sounds good also), of which Jean-Jacques is really the highlight but all of them shine hard and brilliant, solid and fluid. The style is very much , as its successor Les Porches , a sort of fusion but it really holds a great content of classical music, but nothing stolen from the historical composers. If it were not for the sheer power of this music , I could be talking of chamber prog, but this would be hard to see this played in a salon of the haute-bourgeoisie as the intensity of the music would blow away the glass windows even with triple glass.(Hugues Chantraine)

Thank you so much! Jean-Jacques is one of the tracks I listen to periodically on progarchives, and I'd been looking for the album.
