Akchote / Foussat / Turner: Acid Rain (Ayler)
Label: Ayler    
Released in: Sweden    

"Free music... Free of suspicion, at least. The three of us... in other words, together, we begin with a note, a 'sequence shot', rhythm, an idea, then more ideas. Sometimes it starts with the end, often near the beginning, or in the middle... Who knows? Especially when three are playing; each one can disappear, merge or take over anytime... In the end, if I knew more, would you have a reason to listen to the trio?... " This is what you can expose yourself to, when asking musicians to give you some hints about their musical intentions... At least, for once, we'll avoid aligning superlatives. However... Roger Turner... Oh, Roger Turner... Noël Akchoté... Hmm, probably the most... As for Jean-Marc Foussat, you could say he's..."-Ayler Records

"Jean-Marc Foussat (born March 19, 1955 in Oran ) is a French composer and improvisational musician ( guitar, piano, live electronics ).

Since the mid-1970s, Foussat had belonged to groups such as Lézard Marçio, in which he contributed the sounds of concrete music with magnetic tapes. In 1981, he finished his first solo album, Abattage, which was released in 1983. In the ensemble Marteau Rouge (with the guitarist Jean-François Pauvros and the drummer Makoto Sato), he also collaborated with Evan Parker. Together with the saxophonist Sylvain Guérineau, he formed the duo Aliquid, which also appeared with Joe McPhee ( Quod, 2014). In addition to soloprograms, he also starred with Noël Akchoté / Roger Turner, Samuel Blaser, Émilie Lesbros, Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Sophie Agnel, Daunik Lazro and numerous other musicians, as well as the Fortuna 21 Octet of Raymond Boni and the department of education psychique on."
