Album Review

On their third opus, Double Jeu Trio Featuring Michel Godard, the Double Jeu Trio take some chances and go beyond the blend of jazz and rock they favored on their two previous outings. The high energy and powerful drive are still there, as on the exciting "Refunk," that features a stirring solo by guitarist Christian Ernst Graf. However, on about half the tracks, the band opts for a more introspective and lyrical approach. There is no doubt that the addition of French tubaist Michel Godard, who at the time of this recording had already made regular appearances with the Swiss trio, changes the dynamic of the group and offers new possibilities. With Godard on board, the Double Jeu Trio can, for instance, make a more effective use of counterpoints. It also allows the music to delve further into free form as well as to be more rooted in jazz — the quartet even shows that it can swing ("Lunapark"). In this context, drummer Bernard Trontin, who comes from the realm of rock, unexpectedly proves himself a valuable asset. He is certainly more versatile than most rock drummers and helps the band expand its horizons. As for saxophonist Francois Chevrolet, this set confirms what a talented composer he is, with a special affection for effective and intricate pieces. Double Jeu Trio continue to produce one of the most convincing mixes of electric and acoustic sounds — a music that is both modern and original.
