descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Many say there isn't such a thing as "European jazz", but this duo encounter between French saxophonist Matthieu Donarier and Dutch pianist Albert van Veenendaal most certainly proves otherwise. "Planetarium" however, a name which is a declaration of intents in itself, is different again, also far from setting out to oppose the European tradition to that occurring on the other side of the Atlantic, which, after all, is the very source of the music played here in "The Visible Ones": Jazz. Jazz indeed, but with a distinct chamber music format drawing just as deeply on the classical music tradition.

Donarier's personal style is especially elegant, like Warne Marsh or Mark Turner, but with a colour and feeling all of his own: the concept and vision of the music yet different again. Most of his career was developed in the company of European musicians like Daniel Humair, Gabor Gado, Alban Darche, Sébastien Boisseau and Stephan Oliva, Donarier's own bands (Kindergarten, Wood, Dragoon, M.D.Trio) exclusively from the Old Continent, but this doesn't imply a separatist attitude (Donarier has been playing and recording these last years with Tony Malaby or Dave Liebman). Indeed, what you will hear in Planetarium is no "less jazz", even if it embraces another perception of how to handle sound.

The same goes for van Veenendaal, known for his work with fellow piano players (Cor Fuhler, Sylvie Courvoisier, Jozef Dumoulin), composing for woodwinds (Calefax, Amstel Saxophone Quartet) and applying his "pictorial music" ideas to his own groups Pavlov and Spoon3+1Fork. Inspired by John Cage, he is dedicated to expanding the sound of the piano by preparing it, both in his solo project Minimal Damage and recently in a duo with master percussionist Alan Purves.

So here's an European jazz that Americans can enjoy: a universal Planetarium which projects its own music way beyond conventional frontiers and perceptions."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies:

"Matthieu Donarier, saxophones & clarinets, composition

Improviser and composer, Matthieu Donarier is nowadays one the most visibles french blowers of his generation. Creative and versatile, he has been developing many projects rooted in different aesthetics.

He learned to play clarinet during childhood before turning his attention to saxophone at the age of fifteen. After spending a few years practicing classical and contemporary music at the National Conservatory of Rennes he graduated in 1995 with a 1st Prize, then settled in Paris for four years to study at the Jazz Department of the "National Conservatory of Music" (CNSM); He graduated in 1998 with a first prize awarded unanimously.

in 1999 he founded the Matthieu Donarier Trio with guitarist Manu Codjia and drummer Joe Quitzke. The newly created group has been awarded at "Concours National de la Défense" in 1999 - 1st Group Prize + 1st & 3rd Soloist Prizes.

Matthieu is or has been involved in numerous French and European groups, such as BabyBoom (Daniel Humair Quintet), Stéphane Kerecki Trio+1, Gabor Gado Quartet, Stephan Oliva Quintet, Le Gros Cube (Alban Darche's Big Band), Caratini Jazz Ensemble, Unit,... he also shared the stage with Dave Liebman, Tony Malaby, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Chris Potter, Jon Irabagon, Joachim Kühn, Marc Ducret, Bruno Chevillon, Jean-François Jenny-Clarke and many others.

As a result of these experiences, Matthieu Donarier develops his own musical language through improvisation, composition, building projects in a wide chromatic range, from chamber-music rooted creations to electric and complex rhythmic compositions. All of these projects settle in very different aesthetics and give their sense to what can be "contemporary jazz".

Active Bands :
Matthieu Donarier Trio - with Manu Codjia (gt) & Joe Quitzke (dr)
Kindergarten - duet with singer & keyboard player Poline Renou
Dragoon - with Benjamin Moussay (kb), Christophe Lavergne (dr) & Manu Codjia
Wood - duet with Sébastien Boisseau (b)
Planetarium - duet with Albert van Veenendaal (piano, prepared piano & toys)

Matthieu can also be heard through many other projects, e.g his long time collaboration with saxophonist and composer Alban Darche, Stéphane Kerecki's trio and quintet, Patrice Caratini Jazz Ensemble, Santiago Quintans' Origami..."
