The strange sounds of Sophie Tassignon and Peter Van Huffel

In Artist of the Month, Few written notes, Jazz Clubs, Jazz Singers of the month on February 13, 2014 at 10:44 am

Dear friends,

For those who really like music without borders, in danger, deconstructed and recomposed to try some new sounds, please become fan of Sophie Tassignon and Peter Van Huffel. Sophie is well known for her impressive solos and improvisations that break the codes.

Their new CD “House of Mirrors” is composed by <<a myriad of tones and timbres, multiplied, fragmented, and re-sequenced like some devil’s DNA. Peter Van Huffel and Sophie Tassignon’s creations move through the nexus of centuries-old traditions and spur-of-the-moment impulse.  Within, there’s jazz, there’s the 20th century chamber music of Schoenberg and Webern, and the contrapuntal free improv of Bailey, Parker, and von Schlippenbach. The old stones in this garden speak of long-lost Eastern European folk tunes, the Weimar cabaret of Weill and Brecht, and of the tales of a forest canopy and the burrowing creatures beneath>>- Dave Wayne (Santa Fe, NM, USA)

This new CD is the result of the art of great musicians:

Sophie Tassignon (B) – voice
Peter Van Huffel (CAN) – clarinet, alto & soprano saxophones

Julie Sassoon (UK) – piano
Miles Perkin (CAN) – bass

Have a look at this link on YouTube but be prepared to hear something new :-). 

Enjoy and discover,

Céline

P.S.: If you travel and stop in Brussels on March 13, you will have the immense pleasure to listen to Sophie and her friend Suzanne singing on folk atmosphere. They will be at the Music village presenting “Folk Tassignon“.
