"Well, since we're dwelling in strange and absurd music, how about an avant-jazz record that will awe and confuse you? In Love With is a project by French drummer Sylvain Darrifourq, aided by the string instruments of Théo and Valentin Ceccaldi. The album is named Axel Erotic and it's a weird thing, but what would you expect from experimental jazz, something radio friendly? Forget about that. This will kill your radio...

Yes, experimental jazz, I guess many people will know what that means and I guess many people will know exactly what to expect: incoherent rhythms, non-conventional sounds and a nag to take everything to the absurd. Those expectations truly come true, even though the album opens quite friendly with an experimental modern classical piece. 'Bien Peigné En Toute Occasion' is probably the most listener friendly track here, and quite frankly also one of my favorites.

Yet, from then on, things become stranger. 'A Saveur De Très Beurre' nudges towards experimental and pretty dark ambient while 'Asil Guide' becomes utterly chaotic, certainly in the drums. 'Sexy Champagne' takes on a more gentle approach, a bit ambient-jazzy if you like. 'Les Flics De La Police' is a repetitive and polyrhythmic piece of experimental music, not really my cup of tea but not all records can be, right?

There are a few more songs to be discovered on this album, to be discovered by a seasoned jazz fan that is. I cannot imagine that any music lover will be able to appreciate this without the necessary foreknowledge of avant garde jazz music. But that doesn't mean it's a bad album. I quite enjoyed the weird and mesmerizing trip and the many surprising hooks and edges. Perhaps you can too, so check it out. At least it will be something you never heard before..."-Serge, Merchants of Air

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..."
