"A tandem of two ingenious personalities presents an improvised music album: French guitarist Marc Ducret and Lithuanian saxophonist Liudas Mockunas. These musicians have collaborated for several years already - they both are featured on bands such as Toxikum and Megaphone with Stefan Pasborg and Paul Brosseu also with Copenhagen Art Ensemble.

Marc Ducret

Marc Ducret is among today's most original improvisers. Self-taught, extraordinarily gifted musician does not restrict himself to a particular style, writes distinctive and unexpected music - attacking with ferocious electric guitar outbursts or drifting into subtle impressionistic abstractions, resounding with rock hits or approaching post-bop, bursting into noise avalanches or playing with bits and pieces from the world of flamenco and classical music. One of the most unconventional guitarists empowered by acoustic and electric, bass and baritone guitars produces a unique sound, embracing all imaginable music forms.

Born in Paris in 1957 Marc Ducret began his professional career in 1975, playing bass in dance bands, rock and folk groups, accompanying singers and singing himself, and working as a studio musician. This experience was his 'Alma Mater'. As a guitarist he debuted in 1986 playing with Patrice Caratini octet. The same year he became a member of the first French Orchestre National de Jazz, and formed his own trio, becoming a regular performer on the domestic and international concert and festival scene. The following year his trio recorded its debut album La Théorie du Pilier.

Marc Ducret soon gained recognition - he was awarded Django Reinghardt Prize in 1987, in 1988 and 1989 Jazz Hot magazine elected him the best French jazz guitarist, and in 1989 he was hailed as SACEM star. His career picked up and before long as a soloist he became much demanded abroad.

Since 1991, collaboration with American saxophonist Tim Berne brought Marc Ducret recognition in the motherland of jazz. He has since worked in a number of formations led by Tim Berne, including duo, Big Satan, Caos Totale and Bloodcount. Marc Ducret recoded several solo albums, released on T.Berne's Screwgun label. A regular member of New York Factory, Marc Ducret today is one of the few European musicians regularly playing overseas.

Marc Ducret also collaborates with Larry Schneider, David Friedmann, Michel Portal, Joachim Kühn, Franco Ambrosetti, Didier Lockwood, Miroslav Vitous, Enrico Rava, Adam Nussbaum, Django Bates, David Sanborn, Joey Baron, Michel Godard, Dominique Pifarély, David Linx, Bobby Previte and many others, works with various groups, including AKA Moon, Acoustic Quartet with Louis Sclavis and Dominique Pifarély, Andy Emler quintet, Fran?ois Jeanneau orchestra Pandémonium, Copenhagen Art Ensemble, Daniel Humair and Antoine Hervé ensembles, Fran?ois Corneloup quartet, performs as a duo with percussionist Bobby Previte and his quartet Latin for Travelers also with Pasborg-Mockunas"Megaphone" and Pasborg-Mockunas "Toxikum".

In addition, Marc Ducret performs solo and with his own ensembles, including tentet Seven Songs, exploring the music of the '60s with a very personal touch. Marc Ducret formed the present line-up of the trio in 1997, after accumulating experience of working in similar formations."-Jūratė Kučinskaitė, Vilnius Jazz Festival
