Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"A long name for a new Amsterdam-based trio. January 2015 they recorded this debut-album at the Bimhuis, released by the minuscule Casco Records, run by Raoul van der Weide, who is also featured on the other releases by this label. For this release van der Weide (contrabass, crackle box, objects, voice) is in the company of Ada Rave (as, ts cl, preparations, voice) and Nicolas Chientaroli (piano, preparations, voice), two musicians from Argentina who settled down in Amsterdam a few years ago. Van der Weide is the most experienced from the three, part of the Dutch impro-church for many years, played in ensembles of Guus Janssen, Ab Baars, Luc Houtkamp, a.o. Ada Rave first played jazz and improvisation in her hometown Buenos Aires, before crossing the ocean in order to expand her possibilities. Classically trained Chientaroli set also his first steps in jazz and improvised music in Buenos Aires, participating with Rave in the Los Improvisadores, improvising on compositions by Cornelius Cardew. As mentioned above all three play prepared objects and instruments, played with fantasy and humour. Yes this trio has a strong and self-conscious voice. We hear fine spirited interactions, demonstrating that improvising is fun, divided over eight short instant compositions. I enjoyed the phrasing by Rave who plays very inspired all the way. The three don't need more then about 35 minutes to convince that they are an inspired trio with lots of ideas."-Dolf Mulder, Vital Weekly

"Raoul van der Weide (Fontenailles / Fr, 1949) played 6 years of classical violin in the Northern Netherlands Youth Orchestra. As a bassist he developed largely autodidactic but also studied classical double bass at John Clayton and Norma Brooks. Contrast point at Guus Janssen. Feel inspired by inspiration and improvisational practice in the free but unstructured views of various musicians like Paul Termos, Guus Janssen, Lennie Tristano, Misha Mengelberg, Jimmy Giuffre, Steve Lacy, Ornette Coleman, Derek Bailey, Charles Mingus and Munir Bashir.

As an improviser, the creative focus is on the development possibilities of open personal aesthetics in the broadest sense. The continued deepening of its own sound, intonation and power of expression - of the musical fingerprint - is considered important.Van Raoul van der Weide published the solo CD 'Passages' (GeestGronden # 24 / www.geestgronden.com) at the beginning of 2006, to which De Volkskrant and promising 4 stars discussion was dedicated.

Worked together in Bert Koppelaar's POINT OF ORCHESTURE, Paul Termos Trio, Guus Jansen Septet / Octet / Orchestra, Burton Greene Quartet / Trio Spazio Trio (with K. Bauer and Guenther Sommer), Luc Houtkamp Quartet, Ab Baars Sextet, Peter Zegveld projects ('Caspar Rapak' and 'Statua Tumultus'), The Gravitones (Winners Dordtse Jazz Prize 1995), Joost Buis & The Famous Astronotes, Sound-Lee! Quartet ('Plays the Music of Lee Konitz'), New Crosscurrents Sextet."
