Cécile Cappozzo, piano

Jean-Luc Cappozzo, trumpet on #5


released October 12, 2018

Recorded May 2018 at Gaël Mevel's "la Maison en Bois",
Abbéville-la-Rivière, France.

The cross-talk of the three instrumentalists irresistibly evokes these
"flaming collisions" that Lautreamont exhorted, when alternate moments, unfinished or suspended, reiterations, diffractions, flowing and broken sequences of an amazing finish, others stripped in a wilderness where the call to the dance is stealthy but omnipresent and where the flow of lyricism meets the immense story of a powerful and living tradition (Matthew Shipp, Cecil Taylor obviously: "We beat the keyboard and we penetrate the instrument ... ").

The three musicians (plus one, and not the least: Jean-Luc Cappozzo!) have very precisely placed this recording under the call of the "duende" and Federico Garcia Lorca. They could have in parallel invoked Maurice Ravel who said about his Bolero: "I did exactly what I wanted to do, and for the listeners, take it or leave it !".

In these musical times leading frequently to an apotheosis of the insignificant, the space of freedom offered with such determination and so much investment by Cécile Cappozzo, Patrice Grente, Etienne Ziemniak and their guest open spontaneously towards territories of sound with a radiant freshness.
