    Joni and Tempo of the Down,

    New York City?!!! Hell!!! That might not be where one finds Picante Sauce
    but sure does sound like the place for Hellacious Spacey Ambient Acid Jazz
    with Truffaz onboard. I went shopping this past weekend here in Charleston
    and ordered the Revisité from Blue Note. San Antonio is a place to get
    Picante sauce and a great place to see a show. There is this Old Auditorium
    there that is really nice, Great venue to see Sade and the band. I prefer
    it there in the Winter when it is not 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Spoleto is
    going here in Charleston and Medeski, Martin and Wood passed through here
    last week on there way to Hotlanta, GA. For those of you who are in places
    like Paris, London, Montreal, NYC, Vancouver and etc... enjoy the
    opportunities you have to see and hear folks like Truffaz. If the new
    Rollercone coming out soon is anything like Shadow's Five Star Galaxy Part I
    and II then I'll be satisfied. Until then Happy Trails and I'll see you in
    the curves!!!

    Erik Truffaz

    With his second U.S. release, Revisité, the young trumpeter from France, has
    taken the original spirit of the ‘70s fusion movement and applied it to the
    highly creative jazz scene in Paris, stirring a new brew. What started in
    England as acid jazz and then spawned on the continent as trip-hop, drum ‘n’
    bass, electro-acoustic and probably some other name as this is written, has
    come together on Revisité as music that’s completely original, and perhaps
    beyond category. Stylistically, strongly influenced by Miles Davis, the
    young French man
    also owes a debt to the spacious recording style of Kenny Wheeler, the
    sensuality of Chet Baker, the dexterity of boppers Booker Little and Dizzy
    Gillespie, as well as the free explorations of Don Cherry. Like Miles, a
    visionary to be sure, Truffaz has stood on the edge of what’s currently
    contemporary, cradled and nurtured it, and then threw it further ahead.
