Product Description

Louis Sclavis's band of the season is the Atlas Trio, an ensemble with a global reach of reference in which the French clarinettist is partnered by Benjamin Moussay on keyboards and Gilles Coronado on electric guitar. Chamber-improvisation, polyrhythmic grooves, minimalistic pulse patterns, enveloping ambience, rhapsodic piano and funky Fender Rhodes, distorted guitar, clarinet soliloquies, contrapuntal themes, free group playing, a bit of everything. An open-form aesthetic applies in multi-facetted music simultaneously exploratory and involving.

Recorded in the South of France last September, Sources - Louis's ninth album for ECM - features a programme of new Sclavis compositions, and is issued in advance of a major showcase at the Europa Jazz Festival in Le Mans and other touring.

Louis Sclavis, born 1953 in Lyon, has brought new impulses to jazz in Europe. He has been an ECM artist since 1991, when Rouge was recorded. Subsequent albums for the label are Acoustic Quartet, Les Violences de Rameau, L'affrontement des prétendants, Dans La Nuit, Napoli's Walls, L'imparfait des langues and most recently Lost on the Way.

The observations of US critic Gary Giddins, made almost a decade ago in the Village Voice, still hold true: "Louis Sclavis has become an increasingly uncategorizable light in European jazz, devoting as much energy to seamless composition as to extended improvisation, breaking down rhythms so that swing or rock or a kind of static Morse-code repetition are options designed to stimulate specific emotional grounding, and exploring the often neglected legacy of French music; he is staking out his own precinct from which to pursue the jazz muse…He has yet to repeat himself in the ECM cycle."

Personnel: Louis Sclavis (clarinets), Benjamin Moussay (piano, Fender rhodes, keybord), Gilles Coronado (electric guitar)

As usual with Louis Sclavis there are lots of ideas, riffs, dreamy interludes and varied music on this, his latest trio CD.
There is one track in particular with some very jagged guitar playing, and metallic feel, that stands out. It's a direction I would love them to take a whole album in, as I sense a fluency with faster metallic fusion music this hints at. Otherwise its a grower. Often it is hard to believe there are only three guys playing, and the album is hard to switch off once put in.

Maybe his most beautiful album (so far) 7 July 2012
By William Jens Jensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is even better than my other CD by this great artist, "Dans la nuit." One thing I like about this musician is that he leaves plenty of space for the other musicians. It's a sparse group, but they present a full range as they explore and converse with one another. Another reviewer didn't care for the album, but it never made sense to me to buy music you don't like. Like "Dans la nuit," this is great evening music for sipping a glass of wine, closing your eyes, and letting these fine fellow take you away. This music has that rare quality of being edgy and mellow at the same time.

An Astounding Album 4 Aug. 2012
By Speedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a trio of wind, keys & electric guitar. Not really 'jazz'...more like contemporary jazz influenced music. Highly sophisticated compositions and dynamic playing (which should be no surprise to anyone who has heard ANY other Sclavis cd). The album just keeps getting more and more interesting as you discover it, and goes into various moods but always melodic and very approachable to the listener. Not having a bass or drums sort of gives this music a 'classical music' flair but it really is free, avant and contemporary (and modern). Excellent solos by Sclavis specially and great supporting players (unknown to me). Recommended!
