Chloe Lum & Yannick Desranleau - The Garden Of A Former House Turned Museum [No Hay Discos 003]

Put out on the circuit as the third release of the Canadian No Hay Discos label on August 11th, 2k23 is "The Garden Of A Former House Turned Museum", the latest artistic cooperation laid down by Chloe Lum & Yannick Desranleau. With their shared history of creation reaching back almost two decades their latest, only 27 minutes spanning longplayer is split into seven distinct pieces referred to as 'letters' written (or imagined?) by an anonymous source addressing Brazilian author Clarice Lispector, with singer Sarah Albu providing a fascinating vocal performance in between theatrical x drama singing, Spoken Word, Avantgarde Folk and - for some reason or the other - Björk'esque Leftfield Pop eccentricity atop of an intense, highly dramatic, demanding and sometimes even dissonant foundation of traditional Jazz elements with a Broadway attitude and thundering Avantgarde Jazz which, in this form, makes "The Garden Of A Former House Turned Museum" one of the most unique and probably most remarkable conceptual Jazz releases out there these days.
