Revered instrumentalist Mark Turner and vocalist Roger Quigley have worked together in the past, as well as putting together strong efforts on several artistic solo projects. This excursion, entitled The World is Flat is a beautiful concept album, complete with spirally guitars, a little touch of piano spice, and lush string and orchestral arrangements. A dreamy, ethereal piece of art, this album is indebted to the producer for bringing to the listener the state of the art sound we hear from this duet who hail themselves The Montgolfier Brothers. Here you will fine a stunning plethora of musical textures, colors, beats, rhythms, and sounds, which can and will keep you interested many times over. With sweeping beats, spontaneous frameworks, and electric chord progressions, this savvy duo provides true flair, revealing themselves as a feel-good, exuberant pair destined to take on their local music world in future gigs.
