"Born in Fes in Morocco in 1950, Abdelhaï Bennani studied in Marseilles [..] then moved to Paris, when he has been affiliated with players as distinctive as bassist Alan Silva, guitarist Camel Zekri and drummer Makoto Sato.

[...] Bennani's drummer is Edward Perraud, part of the microtonal band Hubbub as well as backing such disparate saxophonists as Jean-Luc Guionnet and Arthur Doyle. Bassist Benjamin Duboc is even more versatile. His list of associates takes in Sato, Guionnet, trumpeter Roy Campbell and saxophonists Michel Doneda and Oliver Lake. [...] In turns discursive, distracted and distanced in his soloing [...] Bennani's mid-tempo performance is one of examination not assertion. Self-focused curvaceous trills, wispy breaths and strangled cries are his most common stratagems. Altissimo shrills, reed splintering and whistling are sometimes used for emphasis, but as abruptly as these explosions occur, they vanish - to be replaced by further plaintive mutterings and taut overtone ruminations.

Responding in an admirable fashion, Duboc and Perraud use almost every tactic available to the non-idiomatic instrumentalists to maintain rhythmic flow on the two overlong improvisations. Bennani's repetitive split tones and striated cries are met by double-stopping thumps and string scrapes from the bassist and ratcheting reverb plus beat fastening from the drummer. If the saxophonist confines himself to excavating timbres within his horn's body tube, cork and reed, Duboc enlivens those responses with harsh friction, sul ponticello runs and stops high up near the bass scroll. Meanwhile Perraud contributes paradiddles played with mallets on top of drum heads plus cymbal scratches and pings.

Rendering his parts with suppressed ferocity that suggest Edward Munch's "The Scream", the saxman's mercurial output occasionally initiates billowing, shredded reed tones as if Perraud's ratamacues and Duboc's power strokes threaten to reduce him to further silence. Nonetheless, the bassist's and drummer's self-discipline is commendable when they resort to hand slaps on drum tops and positioned taps on the bass's belly and ribs to enliven Bennani's indolent lowing without masking it. Miraculously tonal fragmentation is masticated into a recapping of the initial head by Bennani during the second tune's penultimate moments. Rounding the circle with Duboc's staccato rumbles and Perraud's rim-shot knocks, the piece concludes disconcertedly, when the saxman literally stops making sounds. [...]"-Ken Waxman, www.jazzword.com


Artist Biographies:

"Benjamin Duboc is a very strong voice on double bass, born 1969, studied with JF Jenny-Clark & Bernard Cazauran, and has played with many great musicians (as Ernest Dawkins, Bertrand Denzler, Roy Campbell, Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Sabir Mateen, Byard Lancaster, Daniel Erdmann, Abdelahaï Bennani, Michel Doneda, Daunik Lazro, Sunny Murray, John Betsch...). And also with Henry Grimes for a great duet in Paris. He leads the "Nuts" quintet with Itaru Oki & Rasul Siddik on trumpets, & Makoto Sato & Didier Lasserre on drums. He plays in "The fish" with Jean-Luc Guionnet on alto sax & Edward Perraud on drums (double cd on Ayler Records) and Rocks in the Sea with Mario Rechtern, Eric Zinman and Didier Lasserre. Benjamin has a beautiful and big sound, you really feel the ground while hearing him... it's somethin' ! He also is recorded on Amor Fati, Futura Marge, Creative sources, le petit label, sansbruit."

"Edward Perraud born in Nantes in 1971

Percussionist, Drummer, composer, improviser and researcher.

He began playing guitar at the age of eight, then learned the trombone and classical percussion at the CNR of Rennes. After a master's degree in musicology at the University of Rennes, he joined the IRCAM doctoral program in 1996 with Hugues Dufour where he obtained a DEA (EHESS / ENS / IRCAM). He entered the CNSM of Paris in the class of Michael Levinas the same year where he obtains in 1998 a 1st prize of musical analysis.

Classical music, contemporary music, jazz (Daniel Humair for 3 years at the CNSM in Paris), Indian (he studied with Patrick Moutal and Ramon Lopez at the CNSM and then Calcutta with Biplab Battacharia at the tablas) Gilles Léothaud in ethnomusicology at the CNSM) and free improvisation, profoundly mark his percussionist play.

He is also a member of the improvised "Hubbub" ensemble with Frederic Blondy, Jean Sébastien Mariage, Bertrand Denzler and Jean-luc Guionnet since 1999. He also founds the duo BIG with his alter ego Frederick Galiay (electric bass) The duo bass / drums under multiple facets: Big drum & bass, Big world, Big Pop.

There are now fifty records on numerous labels worldwide (Germany, USA, Portugal, England, Switzerland, etc ...). He created his own label in 2005 (Quark-records) which today has more than twenty references. In 2008, he founded a duet with the singer Elise Caron: "Bitter Sweets" which explores all forms of improvisation possible in the most varied styles. In 2011, he formed his group: "Synaesthetic Trip" with Benoit Delbecq, Bart Maris and Arnault Cuisinier, his first group as a leader who will be unanimously acclaimed by critics. A second album of his quartet will be released in 2015.

For more than 20 years he has played with many European and American musicians such as Tony Malaby, Bruno Chevillon, Olivier Benoit, Sylvain Kassap, Yves Robert, Thomas de Pourquery (Supersonic), Beniat Achiary, Fred Frith, Paul Rogers, Donnet, Joelle Leandre, John Edwards, Johannes Bauer, Louis Sclavis, Claude Tchamitchian, Bernard Lubat, Michel Portal, Vincent Courtois, Daunik Lazro, Marc Helias, Joe Rosenberg, Project The Bridge by Alexandre Pierrepont which promotes the exchange between American and French musicians.

Das Kapital (Daniel Erdmann, Hasse Poulsen, Edward Perraud) founded in 2001 (Concerts in Russia, Mexico, Honduras, Salavador, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark, Germany ...), which won the prize for the best Jazz record of 2011 in Germany (Preiss der deutsche Kritik) with his homage to composer Hanns Eisler.

He obtains with Thomas de Pourquery Supersonic as drummer and for his label Quarkrecords the price of the disc of jazz of the year 2014 to the victories of the music.

In autumn 2014 he was called by the actor Philippe Torreton with whom they duet the show "Mec" in tribute to Allain Leprest.

Supporting self-giving, he claims a journey away from the chapels where everything must be possible. He has been a photographer and has been exhibiting for several years (Caen, Tours, Nantes ...)"
