Frequent collaborators bassist Benjamin Duboc and drummer Edward Perraud, known from The Fish, Nuts, Abdelhai Bennani Trio, &c, join with prepared and unprepared pianist Eve Risser for two extended, intense and excursive improvisations. The trio has been working together for three years in the French and international improv scene, which shows in the excellent dialog the band sustains while keeping an experimental edge and a powerful drive. With great tension and release and a startling amount of stamina and focus, the music is captivating and almost psychedelic through the use of extended techniques and unusual punctuation. This is improvisation from three players who are in their prime and have hit their stride, remembering to engage both their listeners and themselves. Superb.
