PIERRE DE BETHMANN TRIO

Standards, natural sound, and joy of playing.

Long after Prysm and different steps of the ilium project, Pierre de Bethmann goes back to the trio.

To explore standards from several musical traditions, again and again, sometimes reshaping them harmonically or rhythmically, sometimes trying them on the spot, always digging a little further.

With two outstanding partners, whose careers speak for themselves,  who swing as they breathe, and love to share natural things.

And try, again and again, as a permanent "Essai", out of clichés, just taking the time.

Next step ? Not sure we really know... not really a problem.

Next album ESSAIS / VOL. 2, to be released January 2018
