Album Review

French modern jazz/avant-garde pianist Benoît Delbecq performs on acoustic and prepared piano throughout Nu-Turn, highlighting the "DSD (Direct Stream Digital)" Super Audio CD format. And for the technologists, the producers provide the blow by blow of the recording process in the liners.

He invents subthemes that morph into the big picture, but the preponderance of this outing defies any rigid classifications.
