Info for Les Cadences du Monde

Louis Sclavis new album, "Les cadences du monde", is a sort of bubbling case of imagined music inspired by the photographic work "L'Usure du monde" by Frédéric Lecloux. Eleven tracks come out of it, giving us back our childish eyes, inviting our dreams to resurface.

It is therefore no coincidence that the acoustic marriage of clarinet, cello and percussion takes pride of place in a balancing act of great intensity that pulls us towards the emotional and sensitive chord.

The formula chosen by Louis Sclavis obviously takes on its full meaning here, giving free rein to a great freedom in the instrumental interpretation.

An album that is at once jubilant, luminous and greatly inspired.

Louis Sclavis
born 1953 in Lyon, has brought new impulses to jazz in Europe. He has been an ECM artist since 1991, when “Rouge” was recorded. Subsequent albums for the label are “Acoustic Quartet”, “Les Violences de Rameau”, “L’affrontement des prétendants”, “Dans La Nuit”, “Napoli’s Walls”, “L’imparfait des langues” and “Lost on the Way”. The observations of US critic Gary Giddins, made almost a decade ago in the Village Voice, still hold true: “Louis Sclavis has become an increasingly uncategorizable light in European jazz, devoting as much energy to seamless composition as to extended improvisation, breaking down rhythms so that swing or rock or a kind of static Morse-code repetition are options designed to stimulate specific emotional grounding, and exploring the often neglected legacy of French music; he is staking out his own precinct from which to pursue the jazz muse… …He has yet to repeat himself in the ECM cycle.”

This album contains no booklet.
