Tour de Force
by Diana Golden, Rutgers University
Review of Tour de Force, the third album from C Force, an ensemble comprising flutist Christine Gangelhoff, euphoniumist Christian Justilien, and pianist Christy Lee. With repertoire spanning two centuries, the trio embarks on a musical tour of Guadeloupe, Jamaica, and Haiti on Disc One, with Trinidad and Tobago, Curaçao, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Bahamas on Disc Two. Just as the eclectic album artwork by John Cox might suggest, Tour de Force provides listeners with a sense of the rich tapestry of musical connections in art music across the Caribbean. This two-disc set (released March 2016) was recorded at the Performing Arts Center of The College of The Bahamas and produced by Terry Manning of Lucky Seven Records.
