De Beren Gieren plus Susana Santos Silva: The Detour Fish (Live in Ljubljana) (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"The Ljubljana Jazz Festival has the good policy to program either veterans or newcomers who already proved their value, and here is the recording of the incendiary concert presented at the 2014 edition of that event by young piano jazz trio De Beren Gieren. After collaborations with the likes of Ernst Reijseger, Louis Sclavis and Jan Klare, this time the Belgian improvisers Fulco Ottervanger, Lieven Van Pee and Simon Segers have Portuguese trumpeter Susana Santos Silva as special guest. All four of them play here with a mission: find new ground with the terraplaning tools of jazz tradition and some appropriations of classical motives and techniques. One thing is certain: they really do it. The music is fresh, exciting, sometimes humoristic and even groovy - yes, there's some rock riffs all along. Do yourself a favor and check it out."-Clean Feed

"In the space between expectation and surprise, you will find De Beren Gieren, providing robust evidence that gold can still be mined from the union of piano, bass and drums. Based on the compositions of Fulco Ottervanger, the young trio seeks for music and for each other. This is the key to their music; the challenge of using the power of improvisation on the quest for a new form.

De Beren Gieren are going for it full blast. The group has won several prizes (Gent Jazz 2009, Hoeilaart 2012) and shared the stage with a number of internationally renowned musicians (Ernst Rijeseger, Louis Sclavis, Jan Klare, Susana Santos Silva, ...)

With a raveling (October 2013) the group has released its theird album. Their hard-to-pronounce name starts to ring a bell amongst music lovers from all over Europe. In 2014 they were invited to play in Norway, Austria, Germany, Slovenia and The Netherlands. What might come in the future of these young talents it is only to be seen."-De Beren Gieren Website
