Reciprocity (Neuklang Records)
«It’s hard not to be impressed by French drummer- composer Olivier Le Goas. His penchant for
cascading harmonic movement on his eight original compositions here is matched by a crackling
approach to the kit that can only be described as “creative overplaying.” …Great writing, superb
execution and inspired soloing make this one highly recommend.»
