Compositions by Benoît Delbecq (Sacem).

This band first performed as a quartet at the Blue Room, The Banff Centre, Canada, on July 13, 1990. The four players were participants to the Jazz Workshop led by Steve Coleman. They later met in Paris in 1992 to work on these compositions and record them in Marseille at Studio Cactus. Guillaume Orti and Benoît Delbecq already had founded Kartet with Hubert Dupont and Benjamin Henocq. It is the very first collaboration between Steve Argüelles and Benoît Delbecq.

Paintings is the first recording by Benoît Delbecq as a leader. It was originally released on Deux Z, a french label from the 90's founded by Catherine Peillon. Mob Job by Ornette Coleman (recorded by the quartet at the Banff Center July 13, 1990) was removed from this digital issue for legal reasons, sorry about this.
