JASPER SOMSEN TRIO
featuring Jean Michel Pilc & André Ceccarelli
OCTOBER 2017: RELEASE "A NEW EPISODE IN LIFE - Part II"
THE EXCITING MUSICAL JOURNEY CONTINUES!
After the highly acclaimed Part I, the release of Part II of the diptych "A New Episode In Life" (October 2017). This time the Jasper Somsen Trio digs deeply into free form improvisations resulting in short suites, sometimes evolving in a famous standard from the Great American Songbook. Both albums were recorded in two days. Part II was recorded in about 6 hours, most tracks being recorded in just one or two takes.
ACCLAIM FOR "A NEW EPISODE IN LIFE - Part I" (Challenge Records):
The poetic melodies seem to float over the soft breeze of Andre Ceccarelli 's drum sound, which gives the perfect texture for Jasper Somsen 's deep and dark bass sound. Jean-Michel Pilc 's imaginary musical realm and sense of dynamics is full of suprises. Even more impressive is the seemingly effortless interplay with Somsen and Ceccarelli. **** - Mischa Andriessen (TROUW, NL)
