Rouge is the magical label debut from clarinetist and soprano saxophonist Louis Sclavis, fronting here a group whose unity betrays an innocence honed to a galactic edge. The album works as an organically connected unit, a suit of sights and sounds working in concert toward a vastness that outstrips them all.
