"Three masters of improvisation in a perfect setting!! These improvisations were played on a calm and beautiful autumnal evening in winter. It is the complete set from this trio's live performance, which took place in the extraordinary space of St leopards Shoreditch Church in Hackney, London in Dec 2011 This was the first time we had played together as a trio. The seeds, it seems, had been sewn right here!"-FMR
• Show Bio for Guillaume Viltard
"Born in 1975 in the North of Ivory Coast, I had grown up in a wild countryside with almost no music - but many natural sounds. Back in France at the age of 10, I was seized by a compulsive desire of music, listening to many sorts of music, and especially free jazz, to the great displeasure of my brothers who never appreciated Cecil Taylor for breakfast. I was dreaming about bass playing but started studying philosophy.
By the whims of fate, I saw a double bass at a friend's flat. A few weeks after, I was studying at the Paris Conservatoire and having private jazz lessons. It was ages ago.
I gave my first improvised bass solo in 2003 (not without apprehension !) I have played with many artists of the French improv' scene, including Heddy Boubaker, Nusch Werchowska, Isabelle Duthoit, Alexandre Kittel, Catherine Jauniaux, Jean Pallandre, Mathias Pontévia, Etienne Brunet, Soizic Lebrat, Sébastien Coste, etc. I have also organised many concerts in Lyon where I lived from 2000 to 2007."-Guillaume Viltard Website (http://utofmu.free.fr/?page_id=4)
