What looks like a double jazz EP by the Vertigo Quartet in fact contains four little booklets by jazz illustrator Paquet and scenarists Gilliom, Vendaux and Daniel. However, there is no shortage of music in the two fictitious and two biographical comic stories they contain.
Jazz heroes like Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, Bird and Miles Davis all get to play a part in Paquet’s fluent black-and-white style. With a sense of humor and a great deal of love, the Vertigo Quartet manages to capture the liveliness of jazz culture in all its ups and downs.
In Dutch. Edition of 1000.
