Music played by Garage A Trois on 'World Cafe':
- "Bear No Hair"
- "The Dwarf"
New Orleans-based jazz-funk fusion quartet Garage A Trois ventures into new waters with Outre Mer, an atmospheric soundtrack for a French indie movie.
For its new album, Garage A Trois recorded live, without the benefit of overdubs.
The music for the album was recorded live — and entirely acoustic — to accompany the film, which was directed by Klaus Tontine.
To create their energetic, rootsy sound, Garage A Trois uses vibraphone (Mike Dillon); eight-string guitar (Charlie Hunter); drums (Stanton Moore) and a saxophone (Skerik).
The results, on Outre Mer and elsewhere, layer grooves upon one another, and reference roots music not only of America, but of Africa and points beyond.
