Le Prestige is an attempt by Boston bassist Chris Forkey to create instrumental music inspired by the jazz-sample heavy sounds of 90's hip-hop, electronica and lounge, all performed live with just horns, upright bass, and drums. "Repertoire", finished in 2012, also features Scott Getchell on trumpet, Kit Buckley on tenor sax, John Glenshaw on drums, and Jim Hobbs on alto sax.
