Great review of Naufragés from Australia’s Rhythms Magazine

“Montreal composer and bandleader Alex Lefaivre colours his jazz canvas from an impressively broad palette. Eclectic and cinematic, his five originals and three covers radiate (mostly) subtle echoes of film noir, heavy metal, punk, disco and reggae, lending the music a relatively raw and yet, paradoxically, sophisticated aesthetic. Lefaivre, who plays acoustic and electric bass, and drummer Alain Bourgeois generate a fiery engine room platform, over which alto saxophonist Erik Hove and guitarist Nicolas Ferron, who share a similarly good rapport, send sparks flying. The closing rendition of Led Zep’s Immigrant Song’ is alone worth the price of admission.”-Tony Hillier
