Fiona's Comments

A haunting tune full of twists and changes. Ellipse was released a couple years ago but never got the attention that this excellent album deserved. So, today we're featuring a track from it. Should appeal to fans of ECM as well as Bill Frisell's non-Americana compositions. Jazz from the Nantes scene.

About the Album

It's a long tune with melodic theme based on three minor chords and with dialogues between cello, clarinet and guitar with the piano. Then there is another theme based on the first play by clarinet and cello.

Personnel: Christophe Pays (guitar); William Hazebrouck (piano); Moullier Line (cello); Olivier Themines (clarinet, bass clarinet).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
