Of Polish origin , trumpeter and composer Jacques Kuba Séguin Montreal likes to explore different styles in jazz style . Litania Projekt is one of these, where his jazz joined more conventional energy. Moreover, the small group also includes a Polish violin sidekick , Adam Baldych .
To start with the Projekt Stańko in honor of Tomasz Stanko , trumpeter and composer very famous in Poland still active today. The composition is quite emotional , contemporary classical trend more than jazz. Kuba Séguin seems to like to mix these two currents, but it's done sparingly.
Hercule Poirot comes next, creating an atmosphere of mystery. It is both lightweight , discreet and responsible enough musically. This composition has a very contemporary trend , and violin occupies a very important place , especially towards the end that takes a more lyrical air. Fugue With Anaïs ( to Métis) then takes over , with a sound reminiscent of small jazz ensembles. It is light , melodic , and certainly not too busy. Much of the component has its world music accents (but it is not quite clear what country comes from these tones) , which captivates us immediately .
The next track, Malina , was also a melody that comes from afar. But this time the mood is melancholy , at least initially . Malina lasts no less than 14 minutes , leaving time to explore various emotions . Most impressive in this long piece, is what remains cohesive throughout. Obviously, the solos are prominent in this recording and two-thirds of the track, it gets a little more free . Otherwise no complaints , you can listen all alone and it is surprising to realize that it really lasted nearly a quarter of an hour !
The last Jacques Kuba Séguin composition of the album is Blue Line . Shorter than the previous track (only 10 minutes) , the energy is very slow ( A bit like the subway the same name. Inspiration possible?) . Kuba Séguin is an important and fun while musicians keep the pace by letting go a little too on occasion. This composition is surprising in its build -up a bit sneaky but ultimately very effective. After a performance of fire on trumpet, is the violinist to show his talent in the second half of the Blue Line . It is slightly more conservative in its improvisation, but as it is rare to hear jazz violinists on recording performance appreciates fine.
The album does not end there, Adam Baldych composed Babuszka and 11.16 to close this project. Already in Babuszka means the very melodic side of the violinist. It is very far from the syncopated jazz bebop era. It's a bit lyrical, and it runs terribly well in the ears. 11.16 , in turn , leads us elsewhere. Extremely clean , we hear that almost two protagonists who share the melody, extremely slow. Looks like a requiem , something serious and solemn. And the album ends it. This leaves a strange emotion at the end , but it is bold .
What about Jacques Kuba Séguin and his musicians , if not they were able to link these two styles that seemed light years away. The album Litania Projekt is a little unusually slow for jazz , but it was done in favor of a special atmosphere that the whole has achieved. Highly other projects trumpeter. (google)
