Leading the new wave of young European improvising trumpeters, Airelle Besson is a formidable, compelling and frankly astonishing talent. Sometimes embracing a baroque sense of form and lyricism, she can turn on a sixpence and send forth grooves that mark her out as a fine jazz presence and a thoughtful and articulate composer.

With the elegant and lucid playing of pianist Sebastian Sternal and drummer Jonas Burgwinkel bringing his classic jazz and avant garde sensibilities to the table, this is a trio whose music is both considered and free, communicative and compelling. Listening to each other and to the moment, they build an architecture of eloquent and clean sound, without clutter, but with masses of heart.
