Hi-Res Booklet
You’ve changed. Naming his album thus, Baptiste Trotignon foretells both a personal and an artistic transformation. In the booklet of the album, the pianist even writes: “This album tells a story. The story of an evolution, an inner transformation, a kind of a chrysalis… After several albums where I wanted to emphasise percussion, not only the piano percussion but also the one from the groove masters with whom it was recorded, I wanted to return to my first love: the purity and authenticity of an acoustic sound, the raw sound in its obviousness.” It’s not surprising therefore that You’ve Changed offers the listener an intimate hour where purity, silence, space and an emphasis on tone reign above all else. The saying less is more certainly rings true here… Ten out of the sixteen tracks are played solo on the piano, a setup which Trotignon has not revisited on an album in fifteen years. Extending from September 2017 to February 2019, the album was recorded, depending on the tracks, with Camélia Jordana and Thomas Pourquery on vocals, Ibrahim Maalouf and Avishai Cohen on trumpets, Joe Lovano on the tenor saxophone and Vincent Ségal on the cello. A select group of friends to stand by the master of ceremonies as he experiences some changes in his life but also to emphasise the special relationship he holds with music and the human voice. His emotional state is one of a certain melancholy (even if the well-named Speed is an impressive three-minute-long car chase of a track). With few words, Baptiste Trotignon manages to say a lot. His version of jazz, multifaceted in its programme - his compositions touch on Bach, Sixto Rodriguez, The Beatles, and standards like These Foolish Things and I’m a Fool to Want You - and in its references to the jazz of the former European greats, is certainly the work of a virtuoso who has no interest in smoke and mirrors but rather a continuous thread of comprehensive music. An album so poignant that Trotignon himself writes, still in the same notes in the album cover, that this music represents “a rebirth, a direction to approach the second part of my life.” © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Contemporary Jazz - Released January 5, 2009 | naïve Jazz

At first impression, post-bop pianist/composer Baptiste Trotignon looks like a newcomer to the jazz scene, though he has recorded a number of CD since the mid-'90s as a leader on the Naive label. He will likely benefit from the wider distribution of his Sunnyside debut, which features Trotignon playing 11 originals with various lineups. A gifted pianist who shows lots of promise, Trotignon's works hold up well to repeated hearings, engaging his rhythm section and telling a story in the process, highlighted by the catchy "Mon Ange," and the wild uptempo blues "Red Light District." Most of the tracks feature the pianist with a trio consisting of bassist Matt Penman and either Eric Harland or Otis Brown II on drums, all of whom provide strong support. Of special interest are the tracks featuring guest Tom Harrell on flugelhorn and tenor saxophonist Mark Turner, who work together to flesh out the exotic ballad "Samsara" and the playful bop vehicle "Dexter." Turner's individual feature is the tense post-bop composition "Flow," while Harrell's showcase is "Blue," an intricate, somewhat pastoral duet with Trotignon. This outstanding release by Baptiste Trotignon will likely provoke investigation of his earlier CDs. © Ken Dryden /TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
Cross-fertilisation has always been at the heart of jazz. And this superb album which celebrates the musical richness and diversity of the African diaspora in the USA and in the old French colonies in the Americas is further proof of this truism. With Ancestral Memories, Cuban saxophonist Yosvany Terry and French pianist Baptiste Trotignon have created a kind of monument to the past, which they root in the present: the present of their personality, both human and musical. With a contained rhythm section - Yunior Terry on double bass and Jeff "Tain" Watts on the drums - their encounter takes its inspiration from the musical tradition of the French Antilles and draws deeply from the well of this music, before pushing on and taking it further. And it gives way to a fine and warmly-accented swing music. As for Trotignon, a traveller of beautiful paths and a daring adventurer, Ancestral Memories must count as one of his finest records. © MD/Qobuz
