Meating him, he gives the impression of a rockface of smiling serenity. And here we have a CD that he signed from A to Z, a CD which he claims to be his most personal recording so far. It is indeed the same person you will find again in the music, a mixture of delicateness and vitality, humor and profundity.
Daniel Casimir did not just sign a trombone recording, but rather a musicians recording. A recording of somebody who made his name as a sideman, but when he is in charge (compooser, arranger,conductor) he takes the trouble over presenting the values of those that surround him. In this recording he did not want you to focus on the trombone. You will hear him shure and generous as usual, but he leaves the main parts to the interpreters of his music, particulary Michael Felberbaum (guit.), Vincent Courtois (cello), Nicolas Genest (tp.),and the "Quatuor Ebene" not just limited to the usual decorating chords. Everybody has space to expresse himself in what he knows to do, even so it always is the music of Daniel Casimir you will hear, with all the facets of his soul. Easy going or spiritual, complex or evident, holding back or fully letting go. Stunningly humain.
