“On its superb debut album, File Under: Bebop (Umlaut), this clever French-Swedish trio transforms classic tunes by the likes of Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, and Bud Powell into delivery systems for loosey-goosey free jazz. Alto saxophonist Pierre-Antoine Badaroux, bassist Joel Grip, and drummer Antonin Gerbal clearly love and understand the hijacked standards, and in each performance PEEPING TOM refer back to abstracted bits of their source material. Their buoyant, spontaneous improvisations are somehow both craggy and lithe, hurtling sure footedly along knotty path — even at its most chaotic the music is as elegant as it is explosive.” – Peter Marasak, The Chicago Reader.
