About the album

Exultet is a young, French trio with the unusual combination of instruments accordion, e-guitar and drums, who first appeared in Germany within the context of Burghausen Jazz Week 2010. And then they won the next-generation prize right away. 'Jazz Zeitung' wrote about the performance of Exultet there: 'The music of this trio is as unusual and at the same time fascinating as the composition of the group members. The idea to mix tones and style elements of French chansons with jazzy-rocky e-guitar sounds and then to present this all in unbelievably cleverly syncopated and at the same time rousing groovy rhythms is unparalleled.'
The band members of Exultet describe themselves and their music as an isosceles triangle. The music is at times a wild, at times a gentle conglomeration, in which jazz is of course included, but the basis of which represents avant-garde rock to the same extent (as it was and is cultivated in the rock-in-opposition movement). Other influences range from tango and musette to dark metal and noise music. Consequently, it is that much more good news that the guardians of jazz are reaching out to Exultet without prejudice before the prog and rock groups become aware of them and claim the trio exclusively as one of their own.
Actually, it is hard to imagine that the result of this comprehensive fusion of styles can sound so marvelously homogenous and original. But the exceptional trio Exultet has really succeeded in doing this fantastically, which is certainly also due to the complete equality of all three musicians. The French word for being exultant is 'exulter'. The trio played with this verb at selecting this name. Not a bad idea.

Exultet ist ein junges französisches Trio in der ungewöhnlichen Instrumentierung Akkordeon, E-Gitarre und Schlagzeug, das in Deutschland erstmals im Rahmen der Jazzwoche Burghausen 2010 in Erscheinung trat. Und prompt den Nachwuchspreis für sich entschied. Die Jazz Zeitung schrieb zum dortigen Auftritt von Exultet: „Und so ungewöhnlich und gleichzeitig faszinierend wie die Besetzung ist auch die Musik dieses Trios. Denn die Idee, Klangfarben und Stilelemente des französischen Chansons mit jazzig-rockigen E-Gitarrenklängen zu vermischen und das Ganze dann noch in unglaublich raffiniert synkopierten und gleichzeitig mitreißend groovenden Rhythmen zu präsentieren, sucht schon seinesgleichen.“ Exultet selbst bezeichnen sich und auch ihre Musik als gleichschenkliges Dreieck. Die Musik ist mal wildes, mal zärtliches Konglomerat, in dem Jazz natürlich vorkommt, deren Fundament aber genauso Avantgarde-Rock (wie er in der Rock-In-Opposition-Bewegung gepflegt wurde und wird) darstellt. Dazu gesellen sich Einflüsse von Tango und Musette bis Dark Metal und Noise Music. Umso erfreulicher, dass die Gralshüter des Jazz vorurteilsfrei ihre Arme einladend Richtung Exultet ausstrecken – bevor die Prog- und Rock-Fraktionen wach werden und das Trio ausschließlich für sich beanspruchen könnten. Eigentlich ist es kaum vorstellbar, dass das Ergebnis der umfassenden eklektizistischen Stilverschmelzung dieses Trios so wunderbar homogen und original klingt. Aber dem Ausnahme-Trio Exultet ist dies tatsächlich vortrefflich geglückt, was sicher auch an der totalen Gleichberechtigung aller drei Musiker liegt. Das französische Wort für jubeln heißt „exulter“. Mit diesem Verb hat das Trio bei seiner Namensgebung gespielt. Keine schlechte Idee.
Nach seiner klassischen Ausbildung tritt Akkordeonist Christophe Girard 2004 ins CNSMDP (Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris) ein und schließt dort mit Bestnote ab. Er kommt in die Finalrunden der internationalen Akkordeon-Wettbewerbe von Castelfidardo (Italien) und dem Hauspoz in Arrasate (Spanien). Staatlich diplomiert unterrichtet er an den Konservatorien von Chalon/Saone und Bagnolet und spielt in mehreren Jazz-Gruppen sowie Ensembles Neuer und traditioneller Musik. William Rollin ist am CRR von Dijon als Gitarrist ausgebildet worden. Er widmet sich, neben seiner Liebe zu südamerikanischer Musik, besonders dem Jazz und der improvisierten Musik – zum Beispiel im Gitarrenduo YU an der Seite von Laurent Roubach. Außerdem arbeitet er interdisziplinär mit der Compagnie du Globe im Bereich Komposition und musikalische Improvisation für Theater. Stanislas Delannoy ist als klassischer Schlagzeuger am CRR von Tours und am HEM in Genf ausgebildet worden und besitzt seitdem je ein Diplom für Konzert und für Pädagogik. Er begleitete das Genfer Junior Ballett und war Schlagzeuger des Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. Er erhält eine Festanstellung beim Orchestre de la Musique de l’Air de Paris und unterrichtet, staatlich diplomiert, am CRC von Les Pavillons-sous-Bois. Seine Liebe zu Jazz und Neuer Musik zeigt er neben EXULTET noch im Quartett Cabassa und mit dem Sänger Santeuil.
