JASPER SOMSEN PRESENTS …

JASPER SOMSEN TRIO
featuring Jean-Michel Pilc & André Ceccarelli

Free anticipating interplay … a creative impulse leading to a chain reaction between these three improvising musicians. Their music descending to depths where there are no limits in time and space.
– Martin Laurentius (JAZZTHING, DE)

Concise interplay by a very interesting trio … ingeniously constructed compositions. An intriguing trio: intelligent, well balanced and often poetic. **** ½ – Coen de Jonge (JAZZISM, NL)

“The musicians seem to have agreed only on one thing: surprise each other, the listener and it is constant pleasure. Two albums recorded in two days; so here the follow up to volume 1, which had enthused me last year. The result is as different as it is intriguing.” **** – Vincent Cotro (JAZZ MAGAZINE, FR)

Lynne Arriale’s music lies at the synaptic intersection where brain meets heart, where body meets soul. She is one of jazzdom’s most intensely unique voices. – JazzTimes

ENRICO PIERANUNZI TRIO
featuring Jasper Somsen & Jorge Rossy

After more than 30 concerts and many excellent reviews about their first trio album “Tales From The Unexpected”, Enrico Pieranunzi and Jasper Somsen will be back for their third trio album with the wonderful Catalan drummer Jorge Rossy.

Recordings: September 2018
Release: 2019 (t.b.a.)
Label: Challenge Records

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 Jasper Somsen and André Ceccarelli … emphasizes this great performance”
**** Mischa Andriesen (TROUW)
