Deux Maisons: For Sale (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"The avant-jazz/improvised music scene is very much alive in Europe. One superlative example is this new quartet project reuniting two French and two Portuguese representatives of a new generation of astonishing creative musicians. The name Deux Maisons (Two Houses, in English) derives from that double nationality inside the European Community.

From France we have the brothers Théo and Valentin Ceccaldi (Théo Ceccaldi Trio, Roberto Negro's La Scala, Toons), former Joelle Léandre students who have already marked their names in the most intriguing developments concerning the practice of improvisation. Already considered the heir of the violin lineage born with Stéphane Grapelli and continued by Jean-Luc Ponty and Dominique Pifarely, Théo plays with figures like Régis Huby, Guillaume Roy and Hans Ludemann and cellist Valentin has partnerships with Vincent Courtois, Pascal Contet and Méderic Collignon.

Luís Vicente, a "Don Cherry meets Kenny Wheeler" trumpeter, is from Portugal. His bittersweet sound explains a good part of the international success obtained by the bands Fail Better!, Clocks & Clouds and Vicente/Marjamaki, all three with releases on the Best of 2014 lists. The other Portuguese is Marco Franco, a drummer and composer with a vision of his own, presented in a great variety of contexts, either with his own group Mikado Lab and with the percussion unit Tim Tim Por Tim Tum.

For Sale is an unique kind of chamber music for the 21st century, not to be missed."-Clean Feed
