Abstract

A Season In Hell (Une Saison En Enfer) is the latest Rimbaud inspired work from the Allan Browne Quintet. Dedicated to recording and performing original, contemporary jazz, this distinguished Quintet includes the prolific and highly respected Allan Browne, the extraordinary compositional talents of Geoff Hughes and Eugene Ball, notable double bass player Nick Haywood and accomplished alto sax man, Philip Noy Over 18 months, the Quintet developed and recorded these pieces, inspired by Rimbaudís last work. For years the 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud has mesmerized Allan Browne with his prose and precocious genius. This is the sequel to the Quintetís 2007 release The Drunken Boat, Rimbaudís best known, 25-verse poem; thus completing this cycle for the Quintet. This lengthy prose poem, written in 1873, Rimbaudís 19th year, traces the narratorís journey from life into hell, with his philosophical observations along the way. Rimbaudís actual journey included a long and widely travelled affair with the older poet Paul Verlaine, who was gaoled for shooting him in Brussels. Rimbaudís work has long influenced 20th century artists and musicians around the world. Eugene Ball (Trumpet), Geoff Hughes (Guitar), Nick Haywood (Bass), Phillip Noy (Alto Sax) and Allan Browne (Percussion).
