Can You Smile?

Ceccaldi, Theo Trio + Joelle Leandre: Can You Smile? (Ayler)
Label: Ayler    
Released in: Sweden    


"Since the release of Carrousel almost 2 years ago, whenever we went to listen to the trio of Théo, Valentin and Guillaume, we had the opportunity to discover an evolving repertoire, never trapped in the rarely exciting comfort of repetition. We happily welcomed the regular appearance of new forms and tunes, but also of new colors offered ​​by Théo's taking on the viola and Guillaume switching to acoustic guitar at times.

So, as we began discussing a recording with the new material, when Théo offered to further expand the range of the trio by inviting the 4 strings of Joëlle Léandre to join their usual 14 and thus bringing with them numerous new possibilities for the music, we imagined the best. Today, the best is here: neither a welcome addition or a one-time meeting, but the sound and feeling of a real band. As far as we're concerned, listening to this music instantly puts a smile on our face. What about you?"-Ayler



"Valentin Ceccaldi was born on February 3, 1989. He had the opportunity to study with Raphaële Semezis, Florian Lauridon, Joëlle Léandre, Vincent Courtois, Elise Dabrowski, Pascal Contet, PRINT and Stevan Kovacs Tickmayer. He regularly performs with Marcel & Solange (Third Group Prize at La Défense 2011), Théo Ceccaldi Trio (winner of Orléans'Jazz 2011, finalist of the Jazz Springboard in Vienna 2011), Walabix (winner Orléans'Jazz 2009, , MÃ © dic Collignon Quartet + Strings (project around King Crimson), Eric Amrofel Trio, Toons (Marcel & Solange + Theo Ceccaldi Trio) and Durio Zibethinus (acoustic duet). He multiplied the collaborations in universes ranging from classical music (Orchestra of Orleans, Orchestra of the Opéra de Massy) to the song (Emel Mathlouthi, Stéphan Rizon, Céline Mastrorelli, Al) , The badly dressed birds). In 2010, he co-founded The Builders of Bridges, a collective of improvisers based on Orléans."

"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."
