Un Poco Loco is a re-reading of one hundred years of the legacy of jazz by three French improvisers of today. This new trio takes hold of unexpected or little-known themes and shows both fantasy and respect in elegantly reworking form, timbre and counterpoint, shuffling the cards that play out between arranged and improvised music.
These three active members of the Parisian scene — cf. the Umlaut and COAX collectives — have been sharing experiences for a long time, and Messrs. Fourneyron, Gesser and Beliah come together here with a concept that features the elegant acoustic West Coast sound heard in Jimmy Giuffre combined with the rhythm and melodic power of Thirties jazz. The traditional vocabulary here sees the trio adding their own language to the discourse of musicians steeped in the contemporary culture of the music, and the three voices blend, collide and unite in constructing dramatic projections that are constantly renewed and spontaneously alive.
