~ Brussel Deze Week ~ 

                                                          Thursday 03 December 2009

Brussels -- It's been quiet around the pianist Nico Vancouver for a little while, but now he is certainly back. With the Haptikos Quartet he has a new CD out: “Our present to the moon”. It is a daring balancing act between jazz, classical and contemporary, completely-ECM style.

 
Jazz lovers know Nico Vancouver from the piano festivals that he organized early in 1990’s. At that time a double CD appeared with (among others) Marc Matthijs and Boyan Vodenitcharov. Afterwards Vancouver headed in a more classical direction.

With Our present to the moon he returns to jazz, but with a very contemporary and very European flavour, like many releases on the famous ECM label. Together with Patrick Wante (drums, percussion), Neil Christiansson (acoustic bass) and Japanese flautist Naoko Senoo he creates an atmosphere in which jazz and impressionistic Debussy

effortlessly fuse. There are also very cinematic passages à la Eleni Karaindrou.

 
The name Haptikos Quartet was deliberately chosen. "We improvise constantly, but not in the traditional jazz manner. There you take the example of a standard melody and you play with it. You always know when it ends, because at the last moment you give each other some hint or a sign. With me that doesn’t happen of course: I can’t see that

because I am blind. I play what I feel. My musicians never know what I will bring. For that you must know how each other thinks and feels very well. Fortunately, that is the case with Patrick, Neil and Naoko. Hence the Greek haptikos , ‘about the feeling'. "

 
"It is no coincidence that there is synergy with impressionist composers like Debussy and Ravel," continued Vancouver. "They also used notes to express something specific. It's playing without worrying about the shape or the theory. Composing for me is indeed a long and difficult process. When I have a melody in my head, I can not immediately put it on paper. I explain to Naoko where I want to go and then dictate it note by note."

 
Naoko, who is Naoko Senoo, the Japanese flautist to whom Vancouver is married. Two years ago she bought out the stylised and very intimate CD 'Out of time' which was totally composed by Vancouver. Senoo said: "I practiced constantly at home, but I had never recorded anything. Nico said to me that it was time that I took the step. He had

some ideas in his head that he then fully developed with a view of that CD. It was certainly no obvious undertaking, because I had to convert his piano compositions to my world of the flute. "

 

Enthusiastically Vancouver carries on: "We are extremely pleased with the sound of this recording. And like 'Our present to the moon', 'Out of time' was also recorded in one take. What I felt very strongly, is that Naoko managed to work out my ideas perfectly. Although I wrote the compositions, she finally created the music.
