Artist Biographies:

"Jean-Jacques Avenel, born 16 June 1948 in Saint-Nicolas-d'Aliermont ( Seine-Maritime ) and died 12 August 2014. He was a jazz bassist, a faithful companion to Steve Lacy, and participated in many other musical adventures. He was interested especially in African music, the kora and tradition Mandingo.

Jean-Jacques Avenel was self-taught, although he subsequently benefit from the lessons of Kent Carte. He began his career by participating in the free jazz movement, playing with Steve Waring, Colette Magny, Don Cherry, and with Noah Howard, the quartet of Frank Wright and Intercommunal Free Dance Music Orchestra training François Tusques. He also accompanies the saxophonist Daunik Lazro.

From 1975, he began to be associated with different formations led by Steve Lacy. Trio, sextet, quartet... But also the quintet consisting addition Lacy and Avenel, saxophonist Steve Potts, drummer Oliver Johnson and pianist Bobby Few, often with the singer Irene Aebi. A long collaboration begins. He accompanied Steve Lacy for nearly 30 years, performing in many festivals and other places in Europe and the United States, and participating in more than twenty albums recordings. He had also the opportunity to accompany Butch Morris in 1980, and David Murray in the 1990s.

He participated in the achievements of Michel Edelin and particularly in the quartet with Simon Goubert and Jacques Di Donato since 1995. More recently, he worked with young European pianists Benoît Delbecq, and Gael Mevel. And with American Mal Waldron and Australian Chris Cody. Plus work with Richard Galliano, George Lewis, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, Dino Saluzzi, Paul Bley, and other.

He also regularly collaborated with François Raulin. In 2000, at the 38th festival Roaring, Avenel, Raulin and Adama Drame together created the ARD trio, training mixing European jazz tradition and the Mandingo. Jean-Jacques Avenel passion for African music and plays the kora, in addition to the bass. In 2004, Avenel and Sissokho surrounded themselves Lansiné Kouyaté, Moriba Koita and Michel Edelin for Waraba project ( "the lion" in language Bamana ).

1 Metz 32:18
descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Metz is derived from what I take to have been a May 2003 live performance by this quartet of French improvisers on clarinet (Charles), saxophones (Denzler), electric guitar (Mariage), and violin (Werchowski). Over the course of a single 32-minute track, the group elaborates a restless concordance from the ebb and flow of its members' contributions of breathy exhalations, microtonal burrs, tinkling from below the guitar bridge, amplified explosions, ligneous cracks, and other products of extended instrumental techniques - plus the occasional descent into silence. At times the playing falls into passages of post-reductionist agitation of little variance, but in general the ingenious shifts in grain and texture, and the close co-operation displayed by the group, make this a good instance of collective improvisation in an advanced, if sometimes quite dense, style. The relatively short running time of the disc may cause a few raised eyebrows, but Metz is no less interesting and enjoyable than discs twice its length - and no-one involved in its release will make more than the most derisory sum of money from it - so why worry?"-Wayne Spencer (Paris Transatlantic)
