Jasper Somsen Synergy Trio feat Jean-Michel Pilc & André Ceccarelli

 

"JASPER SOMSEN SIGNS UP FOR HIS THIRD ALBUM AT CHALLENGE RECORDS INTERNATIONAL"

 

It’s no coincidence Jasper Somsen’s third album as a leader features an international piano trio line up. Recently performing and/or recording with a.o. Enrico Pieranunzi, Joey Calderazzo, Jeff Ballard, Justin Faulkner & André Ceccarelli, he is much sought after by (in particular) pianists. The New York/Montreal based French master pianist & composer Jean-Michel Pilc and one of Jasper's all time favorite French drummers André Ceccarelli will join him. The new trio’s music will be an intriguing and exciting exploration in the hearts and minds of these three wonderful musicians.

"Tales is all about energy ... all driven by inner ensemble urgency. But Pieranunzi's touch always informs energy with graceful elegance and Italian romanticism. His formal sense is so sure that even fully improvised pieces like Improtales 1 sound refined, symmetrical and complete" 
- Thomas Conrad (JAZZTIMES)

 

"You hardly recognize the virtuosity behind Enrico Pieranunzi’s fluent piano playing ... the seemingly effortless, suprising interplay with Somsen and Ceccarelli ... emphasizes this great performance”
**** Mischa Andriesen (TROUW)

 

“All 10 numbers on the album ... are classic examples of Pieranunzi’s trademark mix of silky technique and rippling mellifluousness. In bassist Jasper Somsen and André Ceccarelli the pianist clearly has two like-minded cohorts, as the sidemen deftly add tinting to the leader’s richly hued palette.”
- Barry Davis (JERUSALEM POST)
