Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"It is during a residency from February to April 2020 at the Domaine de Kerguehennec, in Brittany, that saxophonist and composer Baptiste Boiron composed and created the repertoire of the trio La. As a saxophonist, Baptiste Boiron has been navigating between jazz and contemporary music that he studied with Jean-Yves Bosseur. He has performed with many improvisers as much as he has interpreted the scores of Jean-Sebastien Bach, Claude Debussy, Edgard Varese, Georges Aperghis and many others ...

From the first track, our ears are caught by the superposition of ostinatos and proposals, as much as by the polyphonic abundance and the multiplication of modes of play, conventional or alternative. This diversity is only matched by the multiplicity of writing processes emanating from an artist whose pen, like saxophones, testifies to a long experience in the classical and contemporary field. These processes are relayed here by his two fellow musicians who, in addition to the spaces left to their own initiatives as improvisers, have contributed to the completion of these scores in which the boundary between the premeditated and the impromptui blurs.

The repertoire, all originals, except for three titles is dedicated to various artists (musicians or not, "who helped me build myself" says the composer) whose names are only delivered to our perspicacity in the form of anagrams. They say something more about this music where the narrative qualities and emotion show through beautiful instrumental and compositional techniques."-Ayler Records

"Bruno Chevillon (born 23 August 1959) is a French jazz double bassist who is well known in avant-garde jazz as well as in new improvised music.

Born in Valréas Vaucluse, Chevillon followed a double training since he graduated from the Beaux Arts in 1983 where he studied photography, and at the same time followed Joseph Fabre's classical double bass teaching at the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional d'Avignon [fr]. He made his debut in jazz by following the class of André Jaume [fr], is a member of the Groupe de recherche et d'improvisation musicales (GRIM), then joined the Lyon collective Association à la Recherche d'un Folklore Imaginaire [fr] where he made a decisive encounter: that of Louis Sclavis. Chevillon was then associated with a large part of the clarinettist's projects.

In addition to his long collaboration with Sclavis, the double bassist plays with the main actors of avant-garde jazz and Free improvisation : Marc Ducret, Claude Barthélemy, Stéphan Oliva, François Corneloup, François Raulin, Joey Baron, Elliott Sharp, Franck Vigroux, Benjamin de la Fuente, Samuel Sighicelli, Laurent Dehors, Gerome Nox etc.

Essentially a sideman, Chevillon also flourishes as a soloist, however, notably in his performance on Pier Paolo Pasolini. Contemporary classical music is also part of his work.

In 2007, he recorded his only solo album Hors-Champ published on the label d'Autres Cordes, which mixes double bass and electronics. In 2014, he joins the [National Jazz Orchestra] as artistic advisor, alongside Olivier Benoit."
