After having performed as a guest with LeBocal (with whom he recorded 5 albums) on Sunday afternoon, Guillaume Perret & The Electric Epic closed the festival on Sunday evening with an amazing concert.
Guillaume Perret on electric saxophone and effects, Philippe Bussonnet (Magma !) on electric bass, Yoann Serra on drums and Jim Grandcamp on electric guitar.

The above pictured self-titled Tzadik release is their official first album, although they did release another self-titled disc (with a different tracklisting) in 2009.
Anyway, this Tzadik release is superb.
Those who know what they're talking about (over at discogs) call this band "a contemporary avant-fusion Zeuhl super-group". I don't have a clue what that means. I only know that I like it.

In the meantime, Guillaume Perret & The Electric Epic have released another album, "Open Me". It's brand-new and out on their own label.
