Vincent Courtois "West" (France)

Vincent Courtois - cello, electronics

WEST, the album from cello-virtuoso Vincent Courtois for the La Buissonne label (2015), is the work of an accomplished composer. Vincent Courtois’ classical training endowed him with technique, precision, and instrumental control. His curiosity and eclecticism led him to play with brilliant musicians from different backgrounds: Rita Mitsouko, Christian Escoudé, Michel Petrucciani, Michel Portal and Joëlle Léandre to name a few. Strengthened by his many experiences and influences, Vincent Courtois has developed a unique musical exploration. His creative process builds on musical relationships, the balance of personalities and energies, the impact of contrast, ideas of sound, images, incertitude and silence.

It appears as a testimony to the uncompromising poetic choices of a musician who has chosen to exile voluntarily, to retreat within himself in order to create great new horizons for his audience.

Nate Wooley’s knknighgh (USA)

Nate Wooley - trumpet
Lotte Anker - alto sax
Felix Henkelhausen - bass
Dre Hocevar - drums

A new quartet of some of the fieriest and wildest of the new generation of Brooklyn jazz. Featuring Lotte Anker on alto, Felix Henkelhausen on bass, and Dre Hocevar on drums, Nate Wooley (trumpet) has assembled a crack squad of high energy improvisers to perform a new set of compositions called minimalist poetry. The short pieces act as launching pads for improvisations that find the dialectics between jazz, noise, and contemporary classical music before attempting to act outside them; creating something new in the process. Within the pieces, the players veer toward other compositions out of nowhere, swooping in and out of unisons or continuing on their own path until the others catch up. Twenty first century music.
