Revelation of the year (Franck Ténot prize) at Victoires de la Musique 2017, elected French Musician of 2016 and French Revelation of 2014 by Jazz Magazine, Théo Ceccaldi surely figures as one of the most singular voices of the new European Jazz scene. Deploying a very subtle speech, constantly searching to conceal ardour, lyricism and formal sophistication, Théo Ceccaldi found his path in 2010 when he created an original trio with his brother Valentin, cello player and Guillaume Aknine, guitarist. The trio links occidental chamber tradition to free improvisation. The Théo Ceccaldi Trio has confirmed its talent signing two albums with Ayler Records label and winning the “Jazz Migration” 2014’s tour paid by the AJC.
Founding member of the young Orléans collective Tricollectif, the violinist takes actively part in several groups as Toons of his brother, the chamber quartet La Scala and Loving Suite for Birdy So of the pianist Roberto Negro (with Elise Caron). Approved by his pears, Théo Ceccaldi recently joined the new ONJ of Olivier Benoit, the strings quartet of improvised musics iXi ruled by Régis Huby and Guillaume Roy, the project « A la recherche du roi frippé » of Médéric Collignon giving a new breath to King Crimson’s music, and also the French-German octet T.E.E. Ensemble of the pianist Hans Ludemann and the new tentet of Joëlle Léandre « Can You Hear Me? » (with Alexandra Grimal).
