59, Sainte-Catherine Street East
Montreal, Québec

Part of the Montreal Jazz Festival.

The drums and African rhythms of Steve Reid combined with the electronic samplings of Kieran "Four Tet" Hebden create music that is at times abstract, at times hypnotic. This electro-jazz forms a perfectly natural bridge to the music of the modern and original group Tortoise, one of the driving forces behind the "post-rock" movement.

In fact, the group’s instrumental music that has infused a true breath of fresh air into the independent American music scene defies simple categorization, happily taking on jazz, dub, funk, and electronic.
