By MR DAVID TAIT on 27 May 2004
This c.d. is comprised of its title track, Ravel's Bolero, and a seven-track piece (Nympheas) composed by Loussier himself. The former is, as anyone with much acquaintance with Loussier's work will know, typical in being a jazz interpretation of a well-known piece of music. It should not, however, be perceived by any listener as merely being a 'cover' by a fond and capable fan of the original, for that would be to miss the musicianship that makes Loussier's work so inspired. With Bolero Loussier attempts something that is significantly different from other interpretations he has presented (most notably, his work on Bach, Debussy and Vivaldi); at least as far as my own knowledge goes, nowhere else does Loussier attempt to portray an orchestral sound as full-bodied as that of Ravel's original Bolero. This, of course, makes the task all the more demanding, and Loussier rises to the challenge. The trio perform wonderfully to capture the volume-structure of the orchestral piece, beginning very softly and rising (as far a trio can) to grand crescendos. This has the inevitable drawback of possibly having a rather underwhelmed listener for the first few minutes due to the very light (dare I say 'tinkly') sound that the original avoids even at its softest moments. A second listening should serve to remedy this as one comes to appreciate the place this has in the overall structure of the piece. This is true also of the surprise one initially feels upon hearing the sections in which the trio improvise in a way that seems to betray the beautiful solemnity of the original. A closer listening reveals that Loussier's piano is still drifting over Ravel's original notation nonetheless.Read more ›
