Leandre, Joelle & Serge Teyssot-Gay: Trans (Kadima)
Label: Kadima    
Released in: Israel    


"Asking Joelle Leandre and Serge Teyssot-Gay to play as a duet for a benefit concert in support of a magazine seemed perfectly obvious to me, regardless of how merchants label one as a jazz musician and the other one as a rock musician. Brother and sister in a quest for unified, essential and honest art, theirs is a language of philosophical replenishment pulsating with improvisation, instantaneous invention and instinct. Their music is imbued with physicality, and, rather than seduction, with sensuality. One hears lyricism and revolt, the singing of birds, the starvation of those left behind. Their distilled knowledge becomes radically precise, spawning multifaceted silence and liberating trances."-Fara C. from the liner notes



"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."
