"The purpose of discipline is to promote freedom"; saxophonist Manuel Hermia is inspired by this Henry Miller quote when he weaves together jazz, world music, rock and free improvised music. Joined by virtuoso cellist Valentin Ceccaldi, who makes use of his whole instrument to play percussive rhythms, and creative drummer Sylvain Darrifourcq, this critically acclaimed Belgian/French trio produces surprising and inventive music: a gem waiting to be discovered.
Valentin Ceccaldi could be presented as the new revelation of cello in Europe. From experimental jazz to classical orchestras, its rough bow and its delicate pizzicati illuminates his music and our ears. We can feel his strong complicity with Sylvain Darrifourcq who after some great collaborations (Emile Parisien 4tet, Joëlle Léandre, Tony Malaby, Akosh S, Marc Ducret) develops his unpredictable and inventive music in his own bands In Love With and MILESDAVISQUINTET!. Together, they weave the ideal groundwork for the overlapping sax of Manuel Hermia, an adventurous saxophonist who furrows the roads of world music while carrying strongly alive the primal scream of a furiously libertarian jazz.
All three defend the idea of a music without borders, being nourished of all musics. A jazz of today like one says, smart and free at the same time, going from meticulous compositions to drifts without boundaries.
