"Improvised music is created on the spur of the moment, the players looking for the common thread from which they can go in different directions as they spin their story. The logic of continuity is integral, even if they build it in pieces that may at first seem incongruent. Bassist/vocalist Joëlle Léandre, saxophonist/vocalist Maguelone Vidal and guitarist Raymond Boni blend their instruments and imaginations, delving into the unusual and fathoming the unexpected. The end result is fascinating.

Léandre has a large body of recorded work, a testament to her ability to see beyond boundaries. The seed for this was planted when she listened to and was influenced by Derek Bailey, Anthony Braxton and George Lewis, but it's her own germane sense of invention that has made her a dynamic staple of improvised music. Boni first studied piano and then harmonica before taking to the guitar, where he learned his craft from Gypsies. Django Reinhardt created an impression but so, too, did Cecil Taylor. Boni's wide interests have placed him in a comfort zone in a wide array of styles over the years and he finds it once more on this recording. Vidal who is also active on the French scene has performed in trio settings with singer Dalila Khatir and bassist Amanda Gardon. The underlying force is improvisation and experiment, and Vidal is adept at both. Recorded live, this CD provides the ideal setting for the trio. The acuity is instant as they fuse several shades into the music. Interaction is key but so are long lines of melody, fragments that jump and shard, careening lines and cool guitar chords. It all works together superbly. "le passe" has Léandre bowing a broad spectrum of phrases, changing the intensity and the thrust, adding drone while keeping the mood constantly compelling. Vidal stretches phrases, breathes heavily for added brassiness, a voice crying out loud against percussive taps and glissandi until it all rises into an explosive swell. "tube," on the other hand, kicks into high gear with voice, sax and bass. Words fall in a maze of sound complemented by the saxophone whooshing eerily. And just before silence drops its veil, the guitar counts down the final moments in a short but compellingly well-spun idea.

The three artists fuse melody, atonality and cohesion particularly well on the sweltering "gros dilemme." Stirred by the fire in their souls, the momentum is tensile, the thrust constant and the pulse pliant. Léandre, Vidal and Boni spin their tales with an insight that nails the attention."-Jerry D'Souza, All About Jazz

Artist Biographies:

"Joëlle Léandre (born 12 September 1951 in Aix-en-Provence, France) is a double bassist, vocalist, and composer active in new music and free improvisation.

In the field of contemporary music, she has performed with Pierre Boulez's Ensemble InterContemporain, and worked with Merce Cunningham and John Cage. Both Cage and Giacinto Scelsi have composed works specifically for her.

She gave an historic solo concert in "Jazz em Agosto" in 2007 (Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon, Portugal). In this same top jazz festival, Léandre performed also in the "Quartet Noir", a quartet with quite rare live performances, with Marilyn Crispell, Urs Leimgruber and Fritz Hauser.

She has also collaborated with some of the preeminent musicians in the fields of jazz and improvised music, including Derek Bailey, Barre Phillips, Anthony Braxton, George Lewis, India Cooke, Evan Parker, Irène Schweizer, Steve Lacy, Maggie Nicols, Fred Frith, Carlos Zingaro, John Zorn, Susie Ibarra, J. D. Parran, Kevin Norton, Eric Watson, Ernst Reijseger, Akosh S. and Sylvie Courvoisier.

In 1983 she became a member of the European Women Improvising Group (EWIG), which resulted from former Feminist Improvising Group and in later 1980s she co-founded the feminist improvising Trio Les Diaboliques, with Schweizer and Nicols."

"Influenced by musicians as diverse as Django Reinhardt and Cecil Taylor, French guitarist Raymond Boni has developed a unique and dazzling style derived from gypsy technique. After studying the piano and switching to the harmonica, Raymond Boni learned how to play the guitar with Gypsies living near his home. This empirical experience would leave a permanent imprint on Boni's approach to the instrument. In the early '60s, still a teenager, he decided to go study in London. Surrounded by a very diverse and creative musical environment, Boni decided to get serious about the guitar and to break from the musical framework of musical academia. Back in France, he settled in Paris where he was among the first French musicians to embrace free jazz and free improvisation. His first major collaboration was a long-lived duo he formed with guitarist Gérard Marais in 1973. In 1976, he joined the André Jaume/Gérard Siracusa duo and worked with saxophonist Claude Bernard. The latter was also responsible for allowing Boni to fulfill his ambition to compose for and perform with dancers.

In 1978, he started a long relationship with Joe McPhee, which produced some stellar albums such as Old Eyes & Mysteries and Oleo & a Future Retrospective and a tour in the U.S. and Canada (1985). In 1981, Boni moved to Marseille where he was not able to perform as often as in Paris. As an alternative, he focused on writing and diversified his projects. In 1982, he met dancer and choreographer Geneviève Sorin and started to compose music for her company. Raymond Boni also continued to foster some old partnerships while developing new ones with accomplished artists such as Les Mistrals with British improvisers Terry Day and Max Eastley. In the '90s, the guitarist worked extensively with musicians from younger generations, most notably Claude Tchamitchian and Eric Echampard. Boni also multiplied collaborations with artists having a background other than jazz but a bent for improvisation. Another worthy project is Boni's Family with Sorin and son Bastien Boni, which honors his Gypsy legacy and capitalizes on his talented household. In 2001, Boni reunited with McPhee for an album, Voices & Dreams, and several concerts in the U.S. and Europe."
