JOËLLE LÉANDRE picture
Born 12 September 1951, Aix-en-Provence; double bass, voice.

Joëlle Léandre started playing recorder but quickly moved to piano and from the age of 9 to 14 studied both piano and double bass in her home town of Aix-en-Provence. Her double bass teacher, Pierre Delescluse, encouraged her to apply to the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris where she won first prize for double bass. In 1976 she received a scholarship to the Center for Creative and Performing Arts in Buffalo, a time that was to prove particularly influential due to encounters with Morton Feldman, and the music of Earl Brown, John Cage and Giacinto Scelsi. At the same time, she was able to experience the downtown New York music scene and continue her involvement in improvised music.

Joëlle Léandre has continued to be involved with contemporary 'straight' music, not only as a member of contemporary music ensembles such as 2E2M, Itinéraire

JOËLLE LÉANDRE L'Histoire De Mme. Tasco

Live album · 1993 · Avant-Garde Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
snobb
French bassist Jöelle Léandre is a true giant of European improvisational scene - she studied music in France and New York, got to know John Cage personally(recorded some his music as well), was deeply influenced by Anthony Braxton and Derek Bailey. Being a prolific musician,she is well know mostly among fans of improvisational music since many of her works are of very experimental nature.

"L' Histoire De Mme. Tasco",recorded live during two German concerts and released on Swiss hatART label,is her first album as Canvas Trio member. Two other members are violinist Carlos Zingaro and accordion and clarinet player Rüdiger Carl. Rhythmless trio of quite unusual for jazz instrumentation plays "chamber improvisation": music brewing European chamber tradition,Cage aesthetics,Derek Bailey's music freedom,Karl Orff almost Teutonic bombastic elements and touches of French urban sound.

Central album's composition 21-minutes long title piece is full of drama and requires attentional and repeatable listening. At the same time opener "Trio" is surprisingly catchy Orffian-like composition,rich in strings arrangements. Jöelle sings (wordless)excellent operatic voice on "Waspage","To Day And To Morrow" and in few more places - minimalistic sound,build with acoustic bass,viola and accordion fits perfectly for adding classic vocals.Music in whole sounds closer to "musique concrète" than to classic, Jöelle high energetic bass playing build intense, in moments almost brutal atmosphere.

Nervous and screaming "L'Âme Profonde" and melancholic,almost cinematic "Sag Mir Warum " closes this excellent album - complex,full of ideas and great founds,and quite accessible listening at the same time.

One of the best Léandre's work and perfect example of modern European improvisational music.
