"The creativity of Jean-Luc Cappozzo and Edward Perraud knows no boundaries on this extended improvisation. From eery sounds over blues to classical trumpet, these guys manage the whole spectrum and use it too, devoid of themes and structure. Cappozzo's trumpet is ususally voiced, with not too much use of extended techniques, which does not mean that his playing is conventional.

Like some of Wadada Leo Smith's trumpet-drums duets, this album also has its spiritual moments, when the notes slowly glide pass bell-like punctuation or dramatic drum rolls, then shift intensity for some bluesy wails of sadness.The duo setting allows for very intimate conversations, with crackling electricity in the air, giving energy to the other, yet without distance for the listener, as if you were part of the live audience that also seems to appreciate what's taking place in front of them.

The second piece is more pointillistic, with little notes and beats, Herb Robertson style, great fun and tongue-in-cheek, yet gradually expanding into raw powerplay. On the third piece, Perraud's treatment of his cymbals and Cappozzo's use of electronics drive you into the territory of madness, yet both emerge full of control and confidence, when rhythm picks up, from a boppish waltz. The last piece is an exercise in touching silence with a minimum of notes leading to a maximum of intensity.

True, I like the format, very much even, but regardless of my personal preferences, this is a strong albums by two stellar musicians, whose focus is fully on the interaction and common vision. Great stuff!"-Stef, FreeJazzStef



"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 D iploma 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 labelled 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)"
