descriptions, reviews, &c.

"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

"Theo Ceccaldi surely figures among the great revelations of the hexagonal contemporary music. Taken on a jazz scene at a young age in very serious classical studies (punctuated by a First Violin Prize, writing and chamber music in 2004), but always attracted by the freedom of jazz, he has truly found his way by creating in 2010 with his brother Valentin on cello and William Aknine on guitar, an original trio linking the western chamber music tradition and free improvisation. Winner of Orléans'Jazz springboard in 2011, Theo Ceccaldi Trio has since confirmed all the good we could think of him signing another two discs for Ayler Records, and winning the device "Jazz Migration" 2014 AJC.

Founding member of the young trio Tricollectif, the violinist also participates actively in a series of trainings including the Toons (group of his brother Valentin), room quartet La Scala and Loving Suite Birdy So ​​pianist Roberto Negro (with Elise Caron ).

Praised by peers, Theo Ceccaldi recently enters the quartet led by Régis Huby iXi and Guillaume Roy, the project "A la recherche du roi frippé" Mederic Collignon revisiting music King Crimson, and the Franco-German byte TEE Pianist Hans Lüdemann whole and the new tentet Joelle Leandre "Can You Hear Me? "(Alongside Alexandra Grimal)."

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."
