Gypsophilia
Minor Hope
(Independent)
Local jazz fans have been raving about Gypsophilia since its inception and Minor Hope shows why—packed end-to-end with stellar chops and arrangements whose execution is nothing short of genius. The disc is a cornucopia of jazz blasts, baroque bridges and blues-funk groove that all roam over a foundation in French gypsy jazz. Rounded out by some of Halifax’s finest musicians, such as the Oore brothers, Ross Burns, Alec Frith, Gina Burgess, Adam Fine and Nick Wilkinson, Gypsophilia’s debut is not only one of the best jazz discs to come out of Halifax in some time, it is destined to be one of the finest jazz records this year.
