CHARLES-ERIC CHARRIER: C6 GIG CD Monotype Records
Charles-Eric Charrier is badged as one of those artists whom it is difficult sum up their career in a few lines. Experimenting with contemporary Jazz, Rock and ambient, I suppose there is a massive umbrella with which he can play with.
Tragically though, for me there isn’t a hell of a lot going on with ‘C6 GIG’ apart from the odd smattering of noises and cymbal with the interruption of Bass along the way. It isn’t until at least 38 minutes into this one-track album that we are treated to anything cohesive; and then it meanders off again into ludicrous twaddle.
I guess it would be difficult for some to sum up his career in a few lines; if this release were the epitome of it, then it would be quite simple.
