Hi-Res Distinctions Indispensable JAZZ NEWS - Qobuzissime
The idea of ​​setting up a quartet of this kind is not new ground for the talented Airelle Besson. In fact, she confessed back in 2014 (the year of that rehearsals with the band began) that she had spent the previous five years studying up on the subject. The chemistry between the band members and Besson takes place very quickly, and the artist puts it down to her choice of collaboration, with Benjamin Moussay (piano, synthesizer) and Fabrice Moreau (drums) both playing important roles. The discovery and addition of the highly adept Isabel Sörling, a Scandinavian vocalist, is another key aspect of the project and one which makes it all the more singular. Organic and minimalist from end to end, the Radio One music ensemble is graceful and delicate. By placing emotion at the heart of the project, the quartet connect with the listener, and vice versa. A wonderful Qobuzism!

Hi-Res Distinctions 4F de Télérama
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/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Édouard Ferlet has already explored intriguing byways for the Alpha label: in 2015 he and Violaine Cochard recorded ‘Plucked Unplucked’, an album associating piano and harpsichord – a successful venture that will soon see a follow-up. The bassist Stéphane Kerecki has already made several recordings for Outhere, including ‘Nouvelle Vague’, a prizewinner at the Victoires de la Musique. The career of the trumpet player Airelle Besson has been on a high since 2015, when she won both the Prix Django Reinhardt of the Académie du Jazz and the ‘Révélation’ Award at the Victoires du Jazz. These three jazz musicians met and decided to form a trio in order to combine their universes and their ambitions. Here is the fruit of their first year of companionship, a programme presenting compositions by each of them, an album wearing the colours of jazz but featuring several tracks directly inspired by great standards of the classical repertoire, including ‘Es ist vollbracht’ from Bach’s St John Passion, the Pavanes of Ravel and Fauré, the Valse sentimentale of Tchaikovsky, and Khachaturian’s Sabre Dance, which can be recognised behind the ‘Stances du sabre’. The refinement of the compositions and the playing and the musicians’ capacity for listening to each other are a source of endless pleasure and fulfilment. © Alpha Classics
