With Armenian music written by Gurdjieff in the early 1920's, performed by Armenian composer/pianist Levon Eskonian. The Notebook Large Ensemble is an international tentet reuniting Belgian, Italian, Japanese, Swiss and French creative musicians and was created by French-Japanese violist and improviser Frantz Loriot, around his compositions. These last were arranged by Swiss arranger and composer Manuel Perovic. The music of this ensemble is a true amalgam of written parts and improvisation, by all means within the jazz vocabulary, but also reaching into free improvisation; leaving room for spontaneous happenings.
