descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Joëlle Léandre started off her musical life as a great classical bass player, an award winning student at the Conservatoire National de Musique in Paris. In '76 she was awarded a scholarship to work at the University of Buffalo where she came into contact with contemporary music composer Morton Feldman and subsequently began performing the works of Cage and Scelsi. Throughout this time she was also improvising, and as that improvisation was not really coming from jazz, you might wonder what interest her music holds to a jazz gazette. Well, Léandre is quite simply one of the most original and exciting improvisers around today, as well as one hell of a bass player. Bassists from any genre should check out her full tone, great intonation, extended techniques, and flawless arco work. The double bass, after all, is one of the most important instruments in jazz, and free improvisation has given the jazz world an important dose of vitamins.

The highly recommended Firedance not only uses the string instruments as a meeting point, but both players seem to have a dramatic, narrative approach to music. Though not necessarily a common name, Cooke's track record is stellar, including performances with Joe Williams, Louie Bellson, Sun Ra, and Cecil Taylor. Her duets with Léandre are unique, sensitive, outrageous, thoughtful, gregarious; in short, deep, engaging stuff. "Firedance 3" is an amazing bass solo and "Firedance 5" showcases Cooke in a powerful and engrossing violin solo."-Francis Lo Kee, All About Jazz


Artist Biographies:

"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."
