Discography as a leader:

Songbook

January 2015, Autoedited

  • César Joaniquet, tenor sax
  • Brice Soniano, bass
  • Kasper Tom, drums

Songbook plays music full of improvisation and songs that are constantly worn by the love of a good melody.

From a pygmy village in Cameroon to soloist in Montpellier's Opera, the French bass player Brice Soniano can bring with his playing from folk world music to baroque or jazz. He is currently based on the modern jazz and improvisation scene, mainly in Belgium and France.

Drummer Kasper Tom Christiansen made, over the last few years, his name in the European improvisation / advantgarde scene. Not just by being the leader of the groups Kasper Tom / Jacob Anderskov, FUSK and Kasper Tom 5, but also as a sideman in other projects with musicians like Alexander von Schlippenbach, Axel Dorner and Johannes Bauer.

In Motion Trio

January 2014, Autoedited

  • Cesar Joaniquet, tenor sax & soprano
  • Kasper Agnas, guitar
  • Timo van Ruiswijk, drums

Together with Kasper Agnas, swedish guitar player and Timo van Ruiswijk from the Netherlands at drums, I spent a semester studying at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm. We played with many musicians in town but the three of us always had a special connection. So we started establishing sessions with this trio until we already had a large original repertoire.
We did a performance at one of the most important festivals in the city named "New Sound Made" and after the good response that the audience had, we decided to record this album. It is not the most common instrumentation for a band because it misses an essential instrument as it is the bass. This lack of thickness that provides the bass gives us a lot of space to develop compositions. The music we play are original compositions especially written for this band and are mainly based on pure improvisation.

Smog Eyes
(Featuring Ted Brown)

April 2012, Autoedited

  • Cesar Joaniquet, tenor sax
  • Michael Kanan, piano
  • Lim Yang, bass
  • Marton Juhasz, drums
  • Ted Brown, tenor sax on #4 i #8

I met Ted when I lived in New York that year. We used to set up sessions with the pianist Michael Kanan at his studio in Brooklyn. At that time I was living with the other two members of the rhythm section, bassist and drummer. With them I had a great confidence and played as a trio at home very often. One day it occurred to me to suggest going into the studio and recording an album with Mike and Ted. It seemed a good idea and it came out: Smog Eyes.
