Oliver Le Goas is one of those jazz musicians whose name does not strike you as particularly familiar, until you stop and think again about how often you have heard his name before. The drummer has been in demand as a sideman for almost three decades and has previously recorded albums with stars such as Ralph Alessi and Kenny Wheeler. Drumming which is as subtle as it is expressive explains the Frenchman’s popularity. In his band Reciprocity, the sensitive composer Le Goas comes to the fore: with melodic pieces somewhere between blues and folk, always played with punch and groove. Reciprocity lives up to its name – it’s a real pleasure to see the drummer interacting with crack US musicians like Nir Felder (guitar) and Kevin Hays (piano) and with the British double bass player Phil Donkin.
