Trumpeter Airelle Besson signs ” Try ! “, his second album as a leader. At the head of her quartet, which brings together singer Isabel Sörling on vocals, pianist Benjamin Moussay and drummer Fabrice Moreau, she offers a mesmerizing opus. Between aerial reverie and luminous counterjour, the ear floats and escapes the earthly attraction.
More than four years after “Radio One”, trumpeter and composer Airelle Besson returns with Isabel Sörling (vocals), Benjamin Moussay (piano, Fender Rhodes, bass synth) and Fabrice Moreau (drums). Born between the two confinements of 2020, ” Try ! “(Papillon Jaune/L’autre Distribution) is announced for February 05, 2021.
The quartet did more than try… it succeeded an album whose aerial repertoire enchants. The subtle tones of ” Try ! “dance between shadow and Light, Between Earth and space. Emotions are at the rendezvous.
Alchemy was at the heart of Radio One, released in 2016. So naturally Airelle Besson has reunited the same artists for Try!: singer Isabel Sörling, pianist (acoustic and electric) Benjamin Moussay and drummer Fabrice Moreau. The roles are the same. But the collaboration between the four has increased tenfold. The pandemic obliged them to work differently. There is more space, and more freedom. The themes float more freely. They are also more dreamlike, and more bewitching… When the Swede’s voice wraps around the Parisienne’s trumpet with its shades of Tom Harrell, it is blissful. Moussay and Moreau are obviously fully part of this mix. Their contribution is vital. Because even though only Airelle Besson’s name graces the cover of Try!, they all speak as one. Their shared voice is full of playful jazz. It is a narrative jazz, rich in images, and very open. It drifts towards contemporary music. This quartet has a sound all of its own. This little collection of original music is unlike any other. – Marc Zisman
