sample the album:
"Meeting musicians as talented as they're young is always a treat, even when regularly wandering in concert venues. Their 'musical godmother' Joelle Leandre had prepared me though: Three friends, three young musicians, all of them string players - aren't we all one great family? And so much music, emotion and rigour in them already. The writing displays great sophistication and a rare maturity; there is a chamber-like quality to the playing, with mutual listening at the highest level; the duets, solo interludes and improvisations are simple, yet daring; the phrasing and 'dancing' exhilarating, intense and swift; the music is lyrical, profound, adventurous - as dicey as life. Listen to them - they are the genuine article!"-Ayler
Trio + Joelle Leandre: Can You Smile? description:
"Since the release of Carrousel almost 2 years ago, whenever we went to listen to the trio of Theo, 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 Theo'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 Theo offered to further expand the range of the trio by inviting the 4 strings of Joelle Leandre 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
• Show Bio for Theo Ceccaldi
"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)."-Savarez (http://www.savarez.com/theo-ceccaldi)
