In the tradition of „Le Concert des Parfums“ (CM 6277), “Monteverdi“, a brainchild of Michel Godard, was also recorded in the magical abbey of Noirlac, France, during enchanted Summer nights.

Jazz Trio (Michel Godard, Steve Swallow, Gavino Murgia) meets Early Baroque Trio (Guillemette Laurens, Fanny Paccoud, Bruno Helstroffer) and lets two musical dimensions grow, enlaced together in labyrinthine arabesques, playing songs of Claudio Monteverdi, Michel Godard and Steve Swallow in a natural implicitness and lightheartedness.

Michel Godard - serpent, bass
Guillemette Laurens - voice
Gavino Murgia - saxophone, voice
Fanny Paccoud - violin
Bruno Helstroffer - theorbo
Steve Swallow - bass

"If you get to thinking there’s nothing new under the sun, try this release by French serpent player Michel Godard. (And if the serpent is new to you, visit www.serpentwebsite.com.) Recordings featuring the serpent are rare enough anyhow, and this one inhabits a whole new universe. …this is an album that combines early Baroque music and jazz in an experimental manner. Godard adds serpent lines to the Monteverdi pieces and to the other works on the album, all instrumental, which derive from Monteverdi in not very obvious ways… The other improvising musicians are saxophonist Gavino Murgia (who in addition to his usual way of playing the horn channels vocalizations through it) and bassist Steve Swallow, best known for his collaborations with jazz pianist Carla Bley. Their Baroque counterparts are singer Guillemette Laurens, who plays it straight and sounds fine in the Monteverdi, violinist Fanny Paccoud, and theorbo player Bruno Helstroffer. If you’re having trouble imagining what this is like, that’s not surprising; the only recourse is to give this brilliantly original music a try."
