Jazz North East at The Globe presents…
SYLVAIN DARRIFOURCQ / MANUEL HERMIA / VALENTIN CECCALDI
Sylvain Darrifourcq (Drums and Percussion)
Manuel Hermia (Saxophone)
Valentin Ceccaldi (Cello)
Sylvain Darrifourcq and Valentin Ceccaldi are no strangers to Newcastle having played on numerous occasions for Jazz North East at Sage Gateshead, The Literary and Philosophical Society and also The Bridge Hotel. This is however their first visit with the acclaimed Belgian Saxophonist Manuel Hermia.
This is European jazz of the highest quality.
In this second repertoire, the Franco-Belgian trio explores the sound that made them famous in Europe. The wild energy and great intensity communicated by the three musicians still contribute to a unique time-bound experience. Closer to a defined outline, their original process seems more and more clear.
The energetic potential of instrumentation is used to its fullest: from a minimalist and noisy friction of the bow to a sound typhoon, the trio explores these extreme fields with the same eagerness. The new tones created by the sound objects of Sylvain Darrifourcq resonate perfectly with the creative cello of Valentin Ceccaldi: melodic, harmonic and percussive, all at once. Manuel Hermia exerts a powerful lyricism to this mechanical thread reaching a cathartic outburst.
