About: So happy, the curve


Musicians :
Fred WILBO / Piano
Charles LOOS / piano

CD  Description :

ŒSo happy, the curve¹ … is the journey of two men – Fred Wilbo and Charles Loos – passionate about solo piano in the company of a magical piano – an 1877 concert Bechstein, restored with love by it¹s owner Stéphane Collin.
Fred is essentially a solo artist who for many years has played and recorded his own compositions. Charles is a renowned Belgian jazz pianist, who has played and recorded with a multitude of artists and bands all over the world – Chet Baker, Toots Thielemans, Philip Catherine, Maurane, Art Farmer … .

One beautiful summer¹s afternoon, Fred Wilbo took his finger and, following the ŒLaw of Analogy¹, pointed it 15 times at random into the complete works of Saint-John Perse (French diplomat and poet, 1887-1975, Nobel Prize 1960, who produced collections of sublime poems and meditations on the elements, civilisations, and human destiny). The first phrase from each sentence which appeared became the title of Fred¹s new compositions. They are purely personal in inspiration and style, but the feel would be somewhere between Erik Satie and Keith Jarrett.
The year after, Fred proposed the following to his friend Charles Loos: in the same place, on the same piano, to record 15 improvisations inspired by the same sentences. His friend agreed, and another phrase from each sentence became the title of Charles¹s pieces, which on this album are more eclectic, less jazz, more personal than one is used to from him.

Enjoy the curve … .
