Ever since John Coltrane and the avant-garde, jazz music, with its free forms of improvisation, has allowed artists to not only juggle with sounds and rhythms, but to also express the spiritual experience. Listening to INTUITION offers us both the passion of playing and the passion of living. The original compositions on INTUITION range from the very rhythmic (Organic Purity) to the meditative (L'tang). Pieces such as The Way I Thought or Insomnie are more fanciful, letting one's thoughts float freely about. In this respect, Franois CARRIER's music, with its occasional unpredictability, seems to flow out of a sens of great inner freedom. On bass, Pierre CT is a remarkable presence. A style that is very expressive, and there is nothing that doesn't come from pure feeling. Franois CT can be solid and discreet, or percussive and robust, and does it well. This recording by the FRANOIS CARRIER TRIO is the imprint of their experience as individuals and as musicians, a window open upon the planet.
