S'il est admis que le jazz est une manière de ressentir et de jouer la musique, alors on ne peut apprécier qu'à sa juste valeur le pari un peu fou d' «A B Road Quintet » constitué de personnalités musicales affirmées de se réapproprier une partie de la fabuleuse thématique des 4 de Liverpool. Mené par le chanteur américain Larry Tomko, influencé par le grand Ray Charles, le groupe, placé sous la direction musicale du pianiste Alain Ohier, compte dans ses rangs, outre le bassiste Pascal Combeau, deux musiciens connus: le batteur Jean-Marc Lajudie et le saxophoniste Jean-Jacques Taïb. A l'opposé de tout effet de mode, ces cinq « garçons » dont l'envie d'être dans le vent ne constitue pas leur viatique proposent tout simplement une relecture originale de ces thèmes inscrits dans la mémoire collective et qui pour autant se révèlent à l'usage aussi surprenants que subtils. Jubilatoire !
