Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gérard Lesne, Bruno Angelini, Jean Philippe Viret, Ramon Lopez: four musicians in their forties, fed up with the straight-jackets of convention, celebrate eclecticism and play musical chairs with genre labels! From contempt, to respect, from mistrust to attraction, from ignorance to sharing, it has taken nearly a century for musicians to consent to combine their specific talents. The issue here is not jazz and dance-hall waltzes, but rather memory and improvisation. Memory, that common memory which reminds us that, when we were teenagers, we all listened to the same music, anything and everything. Improvisation, that liberty to be and play what we are today. Gérard Lesne likes Monteverdi, he also likes Pink Floyd, Massive Read more Attack and Miles Davis; Bruno Angelini likes Miles Davis, he also likes Olivier Messiaen, Caetano Velso and Steve Reich; Ramon Lopez likes Steve Reich, he also likes Camarón, Ali Akbar Khan and Jon Coltrane; Jean-Philippe Viret likes John Coltrane, he also likes Tom Jobim, Debussy and...Monteverdi. - Jean-Philippe Viret Read less
