Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Choc de l'Année' 2011 - Jazzman! For jazz musicians, the duo of piano and double bass is a perilous exercise in tightrope-walking, reserved for enthusiasts of extreme refinement, those who like to dance on the edge of abysses. By releasing the account of his brief encounter with John Taylor, StéphaneKerecki does more than merely delight music-lovers; he proves once again that jazz cannot exist without sometimes flirting with the void. Their nocturnal conversation describes imaginary landscapes sketched out by the bassist's pen, conjuring up in passing the presences of some poets of jazz: Bill Evans, Scott La Faro, Ornette Coleman, Paul Bley, Gary Peacock . . .
