About the album

A New Episode in Life Part I

It’s no coincidence Jasper Somsen’s 3rd (and later this year 4th) Challenge Records album features an international piano trio line up. Recent years performing and/or recording in trio with a.o. Enrico Pieranunzi, Joey Calderazzo, John Beasley, Jeff Ballard, Justin Faulkner and André Ceccarelli, he is much sought after by (especially) pianists. The former New York, now Montreal-based French master pianist and composer Jean-Michel Pilc and one of Jasper's all-time favorite French drummers André Ceccarelli joined him for this diptych.

At their first encounter ever, this trio with Jean-Michel Pilc - piano and André Ceccarelli - drums recorded A New Episode in Life Part I & A New Episode in Life Part II  in just two days!

The music is an intriguing and exciting exploration in the hearts and minds of these three wonderful musicians.

A New Episode in Life Part II will be released in autumn 2017.
