Stéphane Mercier, a Belgian-born, New York-based alto saxophonist and composer, makes a strong showing on this all-original disc. His music, brought to life here by an eight-piece band, is enormously complex yet irrepressibly playful and funky. Pianist Vincent Bourgeyx doubles on Rhodes and Hammond organ, and guitarist Thomas Gromaire provides just the right amount of warped rock & roll excess.

Fresh Sound New Talent. Personnel: Stephane Mercier (fl, as) Philippe Thomas (tp), Melvin Butler (ts), Thomas Gromaire (g), Vincent Bourgeyx (p, Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes), Mark Zubek (b), Darren Beckett (d), Renato Thoms (percussion). Belgian alto saxophonist Stephane Mercier confirms this axiom on his debut recording for the Fresh Sound/New Talent label. Mercier entered the American jazz scene in 1992 when he moved from Brussels to Boston. The improvisation on the opening track, Night Meanderings, captures in one song the spectrum of styles on the rest of the album. Mercier initiates the proceedings with lines that ring familiar to ears tuned to a mainstream sound: fast angular runs; a flowing development of ideas; and dynamic range-he drops occasionally from the mid-upper reaches of his horn to deliver a brief, low honk.

A lot transpires on Flor De Luna in less than 45 minutes. Check out also the brief exchanges on WGZFM among the horns and later drums that supplant extended extemporization and Philippe Thomas’ feature position on Avenue A where the trumpeter controls both the melody and solo spotlight.
