4 stars Maneige - one of the most intresting progressive/jazz fusion bands from Canada, more specific from Quebec zone and aswell one of the bands that deserves more attention from us. The second album from 1975 named Les Porches often considered their best release is a very fine work, jazz fusion with a clear direction towards avant prog with folk influences. Only 4 pieces, two of them quite long with adeventurous passages and very demanding arrangements. The musicianship is excellent for sure, with 3 keybordists, string section added folk influences with a pastoral feel over jazz fusion arrangements the result is this album is a winner.. From the next album they optain for shorter pieces and entirely instrumental. This album stands the test of time very well today showing what great and inventive music was in that part of the world. Not among my fav bands or album but for sure desearve 4 stars because the instrumental arrangements are great, I'm not so attached on vocals
