French tuba player Michel Godard presents an album based on the incredible 'serpent' instrument, which dates from 16th century and is a close relation to the tuba. Godard, who has earned the reputation as one of Europe's most important musicians in the border area between jazz, improvisation, folk and classical music since the late 1980s thanks to a number of exceptional releases, has included the serpent repeatedly in his concerts and on his CDs for quite some time. Now, the French exceptional artist has devoted an album exclusively to the "serpent" for the first time to emphasize its magical, mysterious and ultimately very human facets. This was a labor of love for the 54-year-old.

Renaissance ensemble Capella de la Torre on the one side, tuba player and composer Michel Godard and pianist Markus Becker on the other, combine jazz with the alien distance of the renaissance instruments by letting the past and the present meet and collide. They give worlds of differing memories a new form and let the heterogeneous become something new and homogenous.

La commistione, anzi la collaborazione tra musica classica e jazz è sempre stata al centro del lavoro di Michel Godard e aveva già trovato momenti di realizzazione esemplare - ad esempio, nello splendido Castel del Monte, uscito per la Enja nel 2000. Ecco, con questo Archangelica, un altro capitolo della ricerca godardiana, stavolta scaturente da una curiosa combinazione di elementi: l’invito a collaborare con un ensemble barocco, sulla base delle Leçons des ténèbres di Marc-Antoine Charpentier, in occasione di uno spettacolo tratto da un romanzo fantastico di Nancy Huston.

Following the extraordinary statement of "Castel del Monte", French tuba and serpent player Michel Godard felt even more fascinated by this magical building and returned to Apulia for a second trip through times and cultures. Accompanied by some leading Italian and French improvisers like Gabriele Mirabassi and Vincent Courtois, Godard also called for the services of renowned Italian Ensemble Calixtinus who are specialized in Mediterranean music such as Gregorian Chants.

The Castel del Monte near Ruvo di Puglia, Southern Italy, was the last and most beautiful building of Frederick II. (1194-1250), Roman emperor and King of Sicily. It dominates the Apulian landscape like a white crystal, a fata morgana beyond time and space whose original purpose will probably remain a mystery forever. When German producer Achim Hebgen and French musician Michel Godard visited the castle together, they felt there should be music created in and for the building - music that is simultaneously in the past, the present and the future. Along the borders between Mediterranean folk song and modern composition, mediaeval tradition and jazz improvisation, the first "Castel Del Monte" project (ENJ-9362 2) became a great musical document of the European-Arabic heritage and its historical continuity. Critics liked it all over Europe: CD of the month (Stereoplay), Rating: **** ½ (Jazzthetik), "Un sentiment d'éternité; **** (Jazzman).
