Friday, July 31, 2015 Trumpet-piano-drums Trio
To celebrate their 20th Anniversary, Les Amants De Julliette released their sixth album, of which two were reviewed on our blog :
Beno”t Delbecq on piano and bass station, and Philippe Foch on tablas. All three also use live electronics during their six
improvisations, which is probably the biggest change compared to their previous albums - and it explains the title - even if
there was actually no need for it, considering what electrolysis actually means: "electrolysis is a technique that uses a direct
electric current to drive an otherwise non-spontaneous chemical reaction". The spontaneous chemical reaction was there to
start with! And furthermore, the electronics play a role, although it does not significantly change the band's sound.
case, even if the band, has not drastically changed
its approach, it still sounds like the musical equivalent of
"a fresh bowl of salad" as I once described them. Their music is rhythmic, open-ended, light-hearted, without pretense
and with a very positive spirit ... this is music that doesn't stop dancing. It is jazzy but not limited to a genre, and like a
fresh bowl of salad, it contains many ingredients that are fun and easy to digest.
