Cappelli, Marco Acoustic Trio: Les Nuages En France (Mode)
Label: Mode    
Released in: USA    

"... La Nuages en France is what happens when you cross one of Europe's best and brightest new music classical guitarists/composers with the best of New York's avant jazz/improv scene. The sonics recall the lusciousness of Ralph Towner's ECM work, but the compositional/improvisational smarts and depth of Marco's classical chops and background on this recording are unlike anything I've heard. Also, Marco has developed a long-term working relationship with these musicians, and it shows: after spending 5 years immersing himself in New York jazz/improv/new music, he's no musical tourist, but a confident band leader/composer/guitarist. Really great stuff that deserves to be heard."-Marc Ribot

"The Marco Cappelli Acoustic Trio, formed by three of most active improvisers in the New York avantgarde music scene, was born around the music that Marco Cappelli wrote - inspired by the characters of Fred Vargas' mysteries - in a suite titled Les Nuages En France. Those familiar with the French writer Fred Vargas will find it easy to recognize the personalities of Adamsberg, Danglard, Retancourt, etc. in these tunes.

After completing many years of demanding music studies (Conservatorio di S. Cecilia in Rome and the Konzert-Klasse at the Musik Akademie in Basel with Oscar Ghiglia), Marco Cappelli has lead an extraordinary artistic path, becoming familiar both with rigorous written music as well with free improvisation languages. The diversity of Marco's performances is due to a fascinating array of collaborations - Anthony Coleman, Butch Morris, Mauro Pagani (of the Italian progressive rock band PFM), Enrico Rava, Marc Ribot, Elliott Sharp, Markus Stockhausen, and more - and regularly as guest in important international classical and contemporary music series."-Mode Records
