Artist/Band:Perrine Mansuy Trio
Cat No.:AS-087
Performed by:Perrine Mansuy (piano)
Eric Surmenian (bass)
Joe Quitzke (drums)
Release Date:05/29/2009
Description:French pianist and composer Perrine Mansuy debut with her trio in 1997 after graduating from the Marseille Jazz Conservatory at the top of her class. A modern and poetic jazz pianist with a prestine touch, she has a wide range of techniques--she even plays Sarangi, a bowed, short-necked lute of the Indian subcontinent.

This is Ms. Mansuy's second CD released by Atelier Sawano of Japan, following her 2004 debut La Nuit. Recorded in 2006 with her regular trio with bassist Eric Surmenian and drummer Joe Quitzke, this album showcases her attractive original compositions as well as her interpretations of well-known songs. The materials are taken from a wide range of musical genres. She pays tribute to talented female musicians she admires by performing their compositions: Ricky Lee Jones's "On Saturday Afternoon in 1963", Carla Brey's "Major", Joni Mitchel's "Both Sides Now."

The interactions among the three musicians are telepathic and delicate. They utilize the spaces between notes and sounds just as much as notes themselves. In some tunes they are not afraid to show their ultramodern sensibilities and a touch of avant-garde. The sound quality of the recording is very good, and adds value to this creative program.

Recorded April 9-11, 2006.
