Conscript, from expatriate Australian pianist/composer Chris Cody and his ensemble Coalition, is as politically correct as it could be. A classically trained pianist, Cody's musical versatility has found expression in a wide variety of work situations, from theatrical music productions to television and jazz festivals, playing with top liners such as James Morrison and Don Burrows in Australia and with Antonio Hart, Herb Geller, Frank Lacy and Roy Hargrove in the US. Glenn Ferris' distinctive trombone sound dominates and is a highlight of the album, but at times there is too much Ferris and not enough of Cody. Bruno Rousselet's bass is gentle and contemplative, while drummer Laurent Robin persistently impresses with an inherent understanding of what Cody has in his command. Cody has assembled a band of Herbie Hancock proportions; one that is capable of conquering the toughest musical battlefield.

Chris Cody is a pianist and composer of astonishing harmonies and impressive sensitivity. The new CD Conscript gathers together eleven pieces of exceptional sensuality and urban groove alternating between swing, jungle, ballad, and other contemporary styles. The album features the interaction between Chris Cody’s piano and the uniquely vocal and lyrical trombone of Glenn Ferris, with fine contributions from bassist Bruno Rousselet and drummer Laurent Robin.
