Agnel, Sophie / John Edwards / Steve Noble: Meteo (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    


"Normally, a jazz piano trio is like a pyramid, with the pianist at the pointing top and both bassist and drummer on the left and right sides of the bottom. Not in the case of Meteo, the project involving French Grand player Sophie Agnel and British rhythm destroyers John Edwards and Steve Noble: what they create is a circle. To be exact: a circle of fullness, not emptiness. The same fat circle with which composer Giacinto Scelsi represented sound. Outside of the logics patterned by Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and Jason Moran, this piano- double bass-drums combination has no hierarchies (everybody leads, everybody follows) and deals with the inner properties of sound itself, feeding from Scelsi's example. Much of the time, Agnel plays standing, manipulating the interior of the piano with hands and objects. In the middle of the abstract noises coming from it we hear a particular succession of pure notes, the fragment of a melody. Inside all the rumble and thunder maintained by Edwards and Noble we recognize a steady pulsation. There's no limits for what these three do: they're atonal, microtonal and tonal in only few minutes. As the liner notes of the CD say, "they flirt with all genres, intensities and intensions"..."-Clean Feed Records
