"Dupont manages to marry a demanding, ultra-contemporary, formal poetics with absolutely irresistible lyricism and swing." In 2007, Jazzman saluted the album Spider's Dance, which marked the beginning of this adventure. In the meantime, the bassist has conducted ensembles turned towards Africa, or to the spoken word, or to the electricity, or to the East, arousing beautiful friendships; but regularly he returns to his accomplices of the quartet with new toys; on this playing field, with these compositions, the band gives free rein to frightening acrobatics, enigmatic rules of the game - and an obvious friendship.
