descriptions, reviews, &c.

"French double bass master Joëlle Léandre is known as a unique and innovative free-improviser who keeps expanding the sonic palette of the double bass, but has rarely focused on the field of orchestral composing. Her major composition so far is "Can You Hear Me?", dedicated to Léandre parents, written for a tentet and premiered in the 2009 (and released as Live at the "Ulrichsberger Kaleidophon", Leo Records, 2011).

This is a reflexive work-in-progress that addresses Léandre's, or any other creative artist's, existential question, a cry for an echo from another presence. Why do we keep creating this kind of art? Do we reach audience's minds and hearts? Do we change the audience's conceptions about art? Social conventions? Gender issues? What about politics? Obviously, Léandre's art is always very personal, as it radiates her restless, passionate and often funny character, yet she is also a very political person. Léandre is always looking for means to shake and change old and archaic conventions and institutions - in art, in society, and in politics. She demands a better, egalitarian, and more compassionate approach, and quite often tends to mock the pretentious ones who cling to some kind of a superior status.

This re-creation of Can You Hear Me? was also recorded live on January 29th, 2015, at L'Arsenal, Metz, France. The instrumentation of the tentet is the same as on the previous recording but the personnel is different. The former recording featured an almost all-Austrian ensemble comprised of musicians that have not played before with Léandre. The new tentet features an all-French ensemble with few close musical partners of Léandre as trumpet player Jean-Luc Cappozzo, violinist Théo Ceccaldi, and his brother, cellist Valentin Ceccaldi.

As on the previous recording this composition reflects on Léandre past collaborative work with iconoclast composers as John Cage and Giacinto Scelsi, but echoes her forty years career and integrates elements of free jazz, free improvisation and some that are more common with noise and even prog rock. But it is not a nostalgic work. Léandre structured it as a 9-untitled pieces suite that make full use of the rich and colorful language of the tentet, constantly generating and encouraging individual, imaginative interpretations from all the musicians. The tentet deepens the atmosphere of an organic, collective chaos, but at the same time Léandre navigates the myriad musical events into a cohesive narrative. Léandre takes the lead only towards the end of the composition, first with an expressive, lyrical double bass solo on the seventh piece, then singing in theatrical, operatic voice on the eight-piece, transformed into suggestive and hypnotic chanting of syllables on the last, ninth piece.

The debut recording of Can You Hear Me? sounded more ecstatic and urgent. This version emphasizes its subtle language and the clever metamorphoses between the different parts. Both highlight the absolute musicality of Léandre, one-of-a-kind individual and both are highly recommended."-Eyal Hareuveni, The Free Jazz Collective



"This hybrid piece, where for the first time the musician has agreed to play the problematic role and function of 'composer', can be read both as a form of achievement and as a founding act. Indeed, 'composing', as she makes it clear here, with the structure constantly generating and encouraging individual expression, is nothing else for her than a transposition to 'another stage' of the improviser's gesture and a transfusion into a band's plural entity of the complex spread of a thought both intimate and collective, made even more unique by its will to be shared. [...] Because she constantly feeds all her experience as an improviser into her writing, Leandre has clearly created, with "Can You Hear Me?", a major milestone in her already illustrious career."-Stephane Ollivier

Artist Biographies:

"Jean-Luc Cappozzo was born in Belfort, France, in 1954. He started playing the trumpet in the local orchestra of his native town where he performed both jazz and classical music. Following a meeting with the diatonic accordionist Serge Desaunay, he started to perform traditional music as well.

His meeting with Dizzy Gillespie in 1984, who invited him to participate in his concert, was a turning point in Jean-Luc Cappozzo's career.

In 1988 he obtained the State Diploma of Professor of Jazz and subsequently taught trumpet improvisation at the Music School of Lyon (CNSM).

He has taken part in various groups of musicians of the ARFI.

He has been a member of he Louis Sclavis Quintet "L'Affrontement des Prétendants" and of Claude Tchamitchian's "Grand Lousadzak". In addition he has played in Sophia Domancich's Quintet "Pentacle", the Denis Fournier Quartet and with Joelle Léandre's Quintet "Fragments et suite lyrique". He has formed a quartet with Jean Aussanaire , Rémi Charmasson and Bernard Santacruz and created a musical work "Du Vent chez Johannes" with the Johannes String Quartet.

In 2005 he joined the European Mythical Orchestra: the Globe Unity Orchestra. He has played with the Apollo Trio and composed duo s with the cellists Joelle Léandre or Eric Brochard, the singer Géraldine Keller, the drummer Paul Lovens, the tuba player Michel Godard, the pianist Umberto Petrin and the trumpet players Axel Dorner or Herb Robertson. Actually, he is playing with: - "The Bridge" with Joëlle Léandre (cb), Bernard Santacruz (cb), Mickaël Zerang (dms) and Douglas Ewart (sax - flûte) - - " Can You Hear Me" of Joëlle Léandre (cb) - " 2 ème étage " with Christine Wodrascka (p) and Gerry Hemingway (dms) - Duo with Famoudou Don Moye (dms) - Duo with Cécile Cappozzo (p) - Quartet à l'Ouest with Jean Aussanaire (sax), Eric Brochard (cb) and Alfred Spirli (dms) - Duo with Géraldine Keller (voice) - Duo with Eric Brochard (cb) - Trio with Didier Lasserre (dms) and Paul Rogers (cb) For his strength, his creativity, his magnificent sonority, the clarity of his phrasing, Jean-Luc Cappozzo is today an indispensable trumpet player on the European musical scene and is in increasing demand. Jean-Luc Cappozzo, powerful and mellifluous trumpet player, is "a discreet man who would blush to be labeled one of the most relevant soloists and the most complete on the French jazz scene. He may blush".(S. Siclier, Le Monde 1/08/2002)"
