sample the album:
"This is the second volume of the in-progress cross pollination of two geographical forces in the domains of creative jazz and free improvisation, a Portuguese one, represented by trumpeter Luis Vicente and guitarist Marcelo dos Reis, and a French one, put to action by the brothers Theo and Valentin Ceccaldi. The ground for this collaborative work is chamber music, the way we perceive it in the 21st century, and both the technical and the aesthetics of the renewed encounter happening inside Chamber 4 are in full improvisation: no scores, no structures of any kind, no previous discussions about what to do or not to do or any type of conceptual reasoning.
What comes up is what naturally happens in the given context, and that's why the liner notes refer the interplay of chaos and order. The order, we can understand while listening, emerging from chaos itself, and the in-the-moment intuition becoming a compositional tool, via sedimentation of elements, elliptical spontaneous organization, repetition and a sense of collective completeness based on controlled individual contributions. This is why the quartet seems to "move as one", even if "in all directions", "out of joy" and "out of distress", as Stef Gijssels writes. Who said everything was already done in the contains of improvised music? Not at all, and "City of Light" is a fundamental new chapter of that always unfinished enterprise."-Clean Feed

• Show Bio for Theo Ceccaldi
"Theo Ceccaldi surely figures among the great revelations of the hexagonal contemporary music. Taken on a jazz scene at a young age in very serious classical studies (punctuated by a First Violin Prize, writing and chamber music in 2004), but always attracted by the freedom of jazz, he has truly found his way by creating in 2010 with his brother Valentin on cello and William Aknine on guitar, an original trio linking the western chamber music tradition and free improvisation. Winner of Orléans'Jazz springboard in 2011, Theo Ceccaldi Trio has since confirmed all the good we could think of him signing another two discs for Ayler Records, and winning the device "Jazz Migration" 2014 AJC.
Founding member of the young trio Tricollectif, the violinist also participates actively in a series of trainings including the Toons (group of his brother Valentin), room quartet La Scala and Loving Suite Birdy So pianist Roberto Negro (with Elise Caron ).
Praised by peers, Theo Ceccaldi recently enters the quartet led by Régis Huby iXi and Guillaume Roy, the project "A la recherche du roi frippé" Mederic Collignon revisiting music King Crimson, and the Franco-German byte TEE Pianist Hans Lüdemann whole and the new tentet Joelle Leandre "Can You Hear Me? "(Alongside Alexandra Grimal)."-Savarez (http://www.savarez.com/theo-ceccaldi)
