Je Suis! is back with a CD, Ça va?, and a LP, Ça va pas du tout!, after their hailed debut Mistluren 2011. Ça va? is a live recording from Jazzclub Fasching in Stockholm portraying the wide spectrum of personalities and free-jazz energies the band possesses. It include over 60 minutes of new repertoire and great interplay with focus on improvisation and swing – in the wide term of the word.
The LP Ça va pas du tout is a live recording from Umeå Jazz Festival 2013, presenting a free plunge off the jazz precipice putting in attention your very own deep rooted pit of inner urge.
The CD throws out a question from within, What is going on? (Ça va?), and the LP answers outwardly: It is not going at all! (Ça va pas du tout!). Whether this is a inner dialogue from the bandleader himself or a perspective of on society today is left left to be unknown. In anyway, the music on each of these recordings is in full bloom and constitute the complete Je Suis! experience.
