"Trio founded in 2014, Un Poco Loco keeps (re)visiting its personal history of jazz, a history maybe a bit crazy but mainly very liberated. After the eponym Un Poco Loco and Feelin's Pretty, dedicated to the West Side Story of Leonard Bernstein, Fidel Fourneyron, Sebastien Beliah and Geoffroy Gesser have already asserted a strong musical identity, proving if need be that traditions are not less honored than freedom. The critics haven't mistaken (with notably a victory at the prestigious contest Jazz Migration) ; the public even less. For this third record, the trio comes back with a new renowned repertory to reinvent, Charlie Parker's! In Ornithologie, the compositions of the Bird become a legacy for the trio : the one of the legendary solos of Parker, their melodic evidence, their eternally modern swing. But more than a legacy, the master of bebop's repertory is the playground of countless occasions of reinventing these themes, whose possibilities hadn't yet been exhausted. In the manner of boppers, Un Poco Loco takes a great pleasure, intensely and musically liberating, in redirecting these musics towards an infinity of other paths. The ones that emerge at each detour of the Bird's repertory in this ornithology that can't be summed up in words. Just as can't be summed up the communicative complicity of a trio able to sound as an orchestra as well as a one man band. From this unity, they draw the ressources of a music exploding in the mode of playing the potentialities of tones and improvisations, forcing each instrumentist to multiply in an infinity of roles and vocabularies. Without any obsequious nostalgia and as closely as possible to the vibrant soul of the Bird's music, Un Poco Loco successes in opening these indestructible themes towards a new listening that no one, except them, could have imagined. It imposes itself nonetheless, immediately, as an evidence."-Umlaut
