Editorial Reviews


In crafting new music for Dans la Nuit ("In the night"), a recently restored French silent film from 1930, French clarinetist Louis Sclavis had to do quite a balancing act. A distinctive soloist known for his work in avant-garde jazz circles (check out his terrific 2001 ECM release L'Affrontement des Prétendants, weakly translated as "The Confrontation of the Applicants"), he had to temper that stylistic approach to absorb traditional elements. He also had to think in both narrative and visual terms. Working with an exceptional cast, including cellist Vincent Courtois and drummer/marimba player François Merville of his working quintet and accordionist Jean-Louis Matinier and violinist Dominique Pifarély of past projects, Sclavis rises to the challenge. The warm nostalgia that informs the main theme is offset by subtle modernistic touches that reflect the dark aspects of Charles Vanel's domestic drama, which involves a disfigured quarry worker and his adulterous wife. Alternately dreamy and bracing, with a soupçon of minimalism, the music deepens with repeated listenings. --Lloyd Sachs

Format: Audio CD
Clarinetist Louis Sclavis's background includes playing avant-garde classical music with Pierre Boulez, then branching into jazz. Dans la nuit is music that Sclavis composed to accompany a silent film of the same name, music that sounds like an amalgam of classical and jazz. But no, it does not sound "avant-garde" at all; indeed, it is quite listenable and should appeal to a broad spectrum of musical tastes. Besides Sclavis on clarinet and bass clarinet, the recording features Dominique Pifarély on violin, Vincent Courtois on cello, Francois Merville on marimba and drums, and Jean Louis Matinier on accordion.

At times, the music seems to suggest motion, often with a little shuffle rhythm in the drums that brings a train to mind; at other times, the music seems to freeze, catching a mood and lingering with it until leaping off in another direction. It is fascinating to hear the music gradually change in mood from jazz to chamber music and back, sounding at times mostly improvised and at other times carefully composed.
Taken either as jazz or as chamber music, Dans la nuit is highly entertaining, original, and refreshing. The engineering is not by the usual ECM engineering crew (it was recorded in France by Gérard de Haro), but the sound is up to the usual high ECM standard.
