Garage a Trois Outre Mer available now! It’s no secret that Franco-American relations have been strained in recent years, but French filmmaker Klaus Tontine and New Orleans-based progressives Garage a Trois have little interest in wasting time on the perceived diplomatic stature of one nation compared to another. In that transcendent space where jazz and the cinematic arts come together, size is nothing more than a state of mind.

Garage a Trois—vibraphonist/percussionist Mike Dillon, guitarist Charlie Hunter, drummer Stanton Moore and saxophonist Skerik—have crafted a brilliant soundtrack to Tontine’s Outre Mer, an understated cinematic masterpiece that spans the lifetime of a brave but solitary figure and subtly illuminates the alternating joys and sorrows of isolation, parental devotion, romantic love and other universal themes that reach out to every shore.
