MILESDAVISQUINTET!: Shapin' With (BeCoq)


The French trio of Xavier Camarasa on piano, Valentin Ceccaldi on cello, and Sylvain Darrifourcq on percussion, having little to do with Mile Davis, but instead a creative band using timbral changes, intensity, density, volume to create unique improv environments.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"We've heard great piano trios, and then you have exceptional trios, and this one is among the latter, with Xavier Camarasa on piano and piano-percussion, Valentin Ceccaldi on cello, and Sylvain Darrifourcq on percussion and zither. After the real albums by the Miles Davis Quintet in the late fifties and early sixties (Cookin', Steamin', Relaxin', Workin', Walkin'), we now have this trio which calls itself "Milesdavisquintet" to produce the limited edition album "Shapin'".

Maybe their ambition is high, to change the shape of jazz like Davis did sixty years ago, and to be frank, in a way they do, reducing the music to sheer sonic dynamics of timbral changes, intensity, density, volume. The role of the individual instruments almost becomes irrelevant in this context, as any instrument can produce any sound and is at the same time melodic and percussive. Despite the limited line-up, and despite the fact that the piano and the cello rarely sound like a piano and a cello, the end result is absolutely fascinating, bringing a fantastic journey that is hypnotic and builds up like a sonic tsunami on the first track, and a more contemplative yet equally intense second track.

I can also highly recommend the band's explanation of what jazz actually means, presented by drummer Sylvain Darrifourcq, and how it differs from other music. If you don't understand French, be aware that the subtitles do not correspond to the explanation, yet they are equally instructive."-Stef, FreeJazz Blog

Artist Biographies:

"Valentin Ceccaldi was born on February 3, 1989. He had the opportunity to study with Raphaële Semezis, Florian Lauridon, Joëlle Léandre, Vincent Courtois, Elise Dabrowski, Pascal Contet, PRINT and Stevan Kovacs Tickmayer. He regularly performs with Marcel & Solange (Third Group Prize at La Défense 2011), Théo Ceccaldi Trio (winner of Orléans'Jazz 2011, finalist of the Jazz Springboard in Vienna 2011), Walabix (winner Orléans'Jazz 2009, , MÃ © dic Collignon Quartet + Strings (project around King Crimson), Eric Amrofel Trio, Toons (Marcel & Solange + Theo Ceccaldi Trio) and Durio Zibethinus (acoustic duet). 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."

"Sylvain Darrifourcq was born in 1979 in Orthez (France), he makes his apprenticeship as a classical percussionist. At 15 years Old, he drives himself definitively towards drums and play in his first rock group. He discovers lately jazz music and his meeting with Daniel Humair leads him definitively to a professional pathway.

Following up, he settles down in Toulouse and got into the CNR (academy of music) where he obtains his award. In 2003, he establishes his own group : L' Egotiste Sorel with which he makes his first record " life of Henry Brulard " (Aljama records) in tribute to the masterpiece life of Stendhal.

2004, will be a distinguished mark of the beginning Emile's Parisien Quartet. The group gives rise to a unique sound universe rewarded by the 2009 jazz victories.

Enthusiastic by the temporality questions, space and music breaks, nowadays, he composes today for these trios : IN BED WITH and IN LOVE WITH , he investigates both ambitious projects MILESDAVISQUINTET! and TENDIMITE (duo for percussion and prepared double bass), works beside new generations composers with which he creates musical plays (Le PANTIN, DANS L'ENTRE from Guillaume Hermen...).

2014, time for the DA-Festival creation, event co-managed with the double bassist and Elise Dabrowski singer. Creative music festival supported by Axel Cassel sculptor. This event has the aim to promote multiplicity forms, improvising as well as writing.

His precise, quick and creative drums game, leads him into all music experiments, to be expected also as a wanted sideman. Settle down in Paris since 2008, he has also the opportunity to express his wide range of music together with l'Orchestre Philharmoniques de Radio France and Pierre-André Valade, Joëlle Léandre, Tony Malaby, Michel Portal, Louis Sclavis, Marc Ducret, Andrea Parkins, Akosh S., Benoit Delbecq, Andy Emler, Kit Downes, les portugese and italian collective Porta-Jazz et Jazz-Engine..."
