Recent years the Dutch double bassist/composer/producer toured frequently with a.o. Enrico Pieranunzi, Joey Calderazzo, Jeff Ballard, John Beasley, Bob Sheppard, Justin Faulkner and Gabriele Mirabassi.
Signing up again with Challenge Records, Jasper Somsen and his favorite European drummer André Ceccarelli agreed on inviting the Montreal based French master pianist/composer Jean-Michel Pilc.
Clearly a perfect match, the trio’s very first encounter ever resulted directly in two new albums in just two recording days! All new compositions, by Jasper Somsen, can be heard on the first album. On the second album the trio digs deeply into free form improvisations, sometimes ending up in a famous Jazz standard.
The music is best described as a highly organic, energetic interplay, full of contrasts, based on a variety of carefully structured musical forms.
