Les InRocks – Les 10-albums de jazz francais qu’il faut ecouter d’urgence

Le nom à rallonge de l’album l’indique clairement : la nature va parler, chuchoter ces secrets que l’esprit seul reçoit et que le musicien, dirigeant les vibrations de l’air, saura à son tour communiquer. Pour le batteur Srdjan Ivanovic, c’est là toute l’affaire, musicale aussi bien que spirituelle, et elle commande de savoir s’entourer pour arriver à ses fins. En Christophe Panzani (ténor et clarinette basse), Andreas Polyzogopoulos (trompette) et Mihail Ivanonv (contrebasse), il a trouvé les meilleurs partenaires possibles pour traverser l’espace de ses compositions en lents vols planés, plongées vertigineuses et jaillissements libérateurs.

The extended name of the album clearly indicates it: nature will speak, whisper secrets that only the spirit can detect and which the musician, controlling air vibrations, will in turn communicate. For the drummer Srdjan Ivanovic, this is what it’s about, musically as well as spiritually, and it demands to know to surround oneself to reach the goal. In Christophe Panzani (tenor and bass clarinet), Andreas Polyzogopoulos (trumpet) and Mihail Ivanonv (double bass), he found the best possible partners to cross the space of his compositions in slow flights, dizzy dips and releasing gushes.
