Comments:  Dont get fooled by the band's name and the heavily featured Citroen DS on the cover - Monsier Dubois actually is a project from the Netherlands. What the 6 musicians (plus guests) call "Danceable Hard Jazz" is an infectiously swinging and grooving affair that combines its deep roots in 60's hardbop and souljazz (Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Jazz Crusaders or Les McCann, to name just a few) with modern day triphop rhythms. Gorgeous sounding Rhodes by Maarten Meddens all over the place. No pussyfooting here, "ruff" wraps it up the right way. Go for it!
