From all points of view, the BJT is surprising: instrumentation, philosophy, sound, music, cohesion. It is well and truly a unique phenomenon in French jazz. It wasn’t until the 90s, with its hoards of DJs, samplers, collectors and other vinyl enthusiasts that, after frantic searching for forgotten musical experiments, the Baroque Jazz Trio resurfaced. BJT is the archetypal dream-record for that type of collector. It completely fulfils the musical demands of this anachronistic tribe, guided by an obsession for the discovery of forgotten or lost sounds, vestiges of a time where music, we are told, was free from all commercial constraints.
So it is that this recording has existed for over thirty years, but it does not really have a ‘name’ in the jazz world. It is still an authentic and unique experience in the mind of its authors: Jean-Charles Capon, Georges Rabol and Philippe Combelle. It will also be one for its audience.
