Description

3/4 Peace, the trio of Ben Sluijs as setting is quite original and rather rare. With memories of the more intimate sound of similar trios as Giuffrey/Bley/Swallow or the trio Konitz/Mehldau/Haden, also has made unmistakably a sound of their own.

Notes

Second release of the trio 3/4 Peace founded by the Belgian saxophone and flute player Ben Sluijs together with Belgian-Peruvian pianist Christian Mendoza and the French bassist Brice Soniano. A trio setting like this is quite original and rather rare. With memories of the more intimate sound of similar trios as Giuffrey/Bley/Swallow or the trio Konitz/Mehldau/Haden, also 3/4 Peace has unmistakable a sound of their own.

Trying to describe them is not so simple. Although the three men have a thorough knowledge of the jazz tradition, they are equally inspired in their improvisations and compositions by among others, the European classical music and jazz-culture. They witness a serious quest for the development of both the individual voice as the group sound, in which their three voices are equal.

A rhythmic bass line by Brice Soniano, supportive yet lightweight and precise can, for example, carry some jumpy lines of Christian Mendoza while the alto of Ben Sluijs from there tries to twist in the air. The trio can suddenly split into duos, drawn-out meditative solo moments, energetic trio improvisations …

A large part of the repertoire consists of lyrical melodies and strong harmonic written compositions, though there is always the possibility and the necessity to be able to let go these more solid forms.

Christian Mendoza - piano
Ben Sluijs - alt saxophone / flute
Brice Soniano - double bass
