Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Tchangodei was born in Benin (formerly Dahomey). His name means thunder and lightening. He is one of the most surprising pianists I have ever had the pleasure to hear...he has made more than twenty recordings as a soloist and with Steve Lacy, Archie Shepp, George Lewis, Mal Waldron, Sunny Murray, Sonny Simmons, Louis Sclavis... The few records of his I know arrived by post. On their covers wer splashes of colour - pictures he had painted himself. Inside was mysterious music that sounded as if it had escaped from the paintings: straightforward, precise, rhythmic, and at the same time fragmented, expectant. It might be jazz - and then one of course thinks of Monk, because of the way the music strongly stresses absence and power, rhthym and Read more silence. It's also a kind of literature beyond good and evil, laid out like a journey to the end of night, alternating between furious tantrums and melancholoy on the installment plan. The ghost of Louis- Ferdinand Céline is nearby, in other words....' ~ Yann Plougastel Read less
