JASPER SOMSEN TRIO 
featuring Jean Michel Pilc & André Ceccarelli

 

"A NEW EPISODE IN LIFE" - Part I & II

 

It’s no coincidence Jasper Somsen’s third and fourth Challenge Records album features an international piano trio line up. Recent years performing and/or recording in trio with a.o. Enrico Pieranunzi, Joey Calderazzo, John Beasley, Jeff Ballard, Justin Faulkner & André Ceccarelli, he is much sought after by (in particular) pianists. The former New York, now Montreal based French master pianist & composer Jean-Michel Pilc and one of Jasper's all time favorite French drummers André Ceccarelli joined him.

At their very first encounter ever, the Jasper Somsen Trio recorded two albums in just two days! The music is an intriguing and exciting exploration in the hearts and minds of these three wonderful musicians.

"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”
