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

Jazz - Released June 30, 2009 | Sunnyside

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
