Jazz Linard 2021 - Cathédrale & Solo
Show all 3 images
The music of the François Lana Trio is raw and finds its origin in the love of the jazz tradition with its wild swing. Free improvisation, which the three musicians understand more as an immediate composition, is an important part of their creation of soundscapes. It is therefore not surprising to hear elements in the trio's playing that remind us of Duke Ellington's "Money Jungle", which is characterized by a certain "monkish" spirit or even the "outdated" but at the same time extremely modern language of Herbie Nichols. The poetry and enthusiasm of Paul Bley can also be used here. This trio, which revives a spirit of jazz that is often shunned by current fashion, develops together through crazy improvisations and beautiful melodies a unique and poignant music.
The French double bass player Joëlle Léandre (b. 1951) works in the field of both new composed and improvised music. Composers such as Earle Brown, John Cage and Giacinto Scelsi have written works for her. Their music is documented on more than 150 recordings. Léandre has played with many of the great names in jazz and improvisation. She has composed extensively for dance and theatre and has staged a series of interdisciplinary performances. She was a DAAD scholarship holder in Berlin and Artist in Residence at Villa Kujiyama (Kyoto). In 2002, 2004 and 2006 she was a visiting professor at Mills College in Oakland, CA, Darius Milhaud Chair, for improvisation and composition. Her work as a composer and performer, in solo concerts as well as as an ensemble member, has brought her to the most renowned stages in Europe, America and Asia.
