Four years after their all-improvised first album ("Sub rosa", 2018, ayCD-153), the trio of Cécile Cappozzo (piano), Patrice Grente (double bass) and Etienne Ziemniak (drums) returns to us with "Hymne d'automne", this time as a quintet, with the addition of two 'blowers': Jean-Luc Cappozzo on trumpet and Guillaume Bellanger on saxophone. Over the journey of the five improvising musicians in landscapes with autumnal colors, the music is in turn dreamlike, energetic, flamboyant (even fiery) and of great formal coherence in the sequence of improvisations with the three themes composed for the occasion.

« Man’s progress through nature should have an accompaniment of music. It relieves the scenery, which is seen through it as a subtler element, like a very clear morning air in autumn. »
Henry David Thoreau (in Autumn: Journal - January 8, 1842)
