Some of the most flowing, breathing music of the festival has come from this quintet led by Daniel Mille, who  sings in harmony over his accordion. Inside his quintet, he finds trios of accordion, bass and trumpet, or piano, bass and drums, or a duo of piano with drums alone. Yet these shifts of focus are subtle. Michael Bourne interviews the artist with Hugo Leclerc translating from French to English, and David Tallacksen's photos of the performance are on our flickr site.
