cinematic%20orchestra-ma%20fleur.jpgAfter a lengthy hiatus, Cinematic Orchestra return with another stunning combination of jazz, electronics and slow-burning torch song flair. These guys are one of the few acts to survive the "chill-out" craze, mainly because their music was always evolving and challenging regardless of whether or not it sounded good in a restaurant. Complete with vocal turns from Montreal's Patrick Watson, Lamb vocalist Lou Rhodes and the ensemble's mainstay, the exceptional Fontella Bass, Ma Fleur is ideal for those who like their music smooth and accomplished, but never bloodless.
