"Since Bill Evans has launched his new conception of Jazz trio
musicians have let go the traditional rules of hierarchy and order
and have created new relationships with one another in the shape of
a free and marvellous musical dialog. Many musicians have set off on
this musical journey and jazz trios including piano, bass and drums
are countless nowadays.
New creations, standards, concentration, precision, elegance,
fluidity, free stream of ideas, swing and energy: these are the main
features of the Sbastien Paindestre Trio with Jean-Claude Oleksiak
on bass and Antoine Paganotti on drums.
There is something different with this trio whose strong sense of
architecture coexists with a taste for freedom. Every musical piece
they play is very well-structured, and at the same time full of
spontaneity and creativity.
The three musicians manage to create a lyrical and abstract style in
a sensual and simple way."
