In Love With
“All three search the timbral qualities of their instruments, patiently and organically sketching a poetic yet chaotic texture…Impressive and inspiring”—AllAboutJazz
French drummer Sylvain Darrifourcq (Émile Parisien) leads this vital and startlingly creative trio through abstracted, brain-meltingly virtuosic compositions that come off like mash-ups of Webern, Satie, Mr. Bungle, and beautifully textured chamber jazz. Alternating between plucking and bowing, cellist Valentin Ceccaldi (Joëlle Léandre), lays down grooves rivaling the heaviest of bassists, while his violinist brother Théo Ceccaldi (Marc Ducret) shreds like a reincarnated Hendrix and pizzicatos like a possessed man sending urgent telegraphs that will change the course of history. Thanks to Consulat général de France à Vancouver.
