Romain Collin Trio

"More than a traditional album, Tiny Lights· feels like a multimedia work, the result of interaction between various arts and driven by the fictional narrative of a protagonist's violent journey to transcendence and Collin's lifelong compulsion to manifest a universe not only of sounds but textures·. Collin explores vocal loops and electronics, previews the extent of this visionary experiment, with filmmaker Matthew Palmer visually matching the emotions of the music to construct a feverish, surrealist vision." - Matt Micucci, Jazziz

"His proudly contemporary new album, Tiny LightsŠ, moves him into the realm of electroacoustic groove music, à la Jason Lindner, and cinematic jazz-rock, à la Aaron Parks....A couple of tracks on the album...also feature beautiful string arrangements by Kazuma Jinnouchi, performed by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra....There's a narrative concept behind Tiny LightsŠ, involving both a hero's journey and a coming-of-age, but much of what you need to know is in the yearning lyricism of this tune, and in the way these three musicians sound both locked-in and open."- Nate Chinen, WBGO's Take Five
