En jazz, un des meilleurs tenants de la vérité la plus crue serait sans aucun doute William Parker. Sans filtre, ses compositions sont toujours émaillées d’une conscience politique forte mais jamais frontale. Cependant, le contrebassiste ne ferait monter ni les humeurs ni les enchères. Sa musique, consciente, reste d’une modestie sans limite. Ce poème sonore est un nouvel exemple de langages liés par ce que Parker appelle la tonalité universelle. Jazz, opéra, folk cohabitent dans ce spectacle total qui se retourne sur un épisode important de la culture des Etats-Unis, The Trail Of Tears. Ce récit de la relocalisation forcée et dévastatrice de 100.000 membres des nations Cherokee et Choctaw, chassés de leurs terres est sans filtre mais donné avec la force d’amour et tissé d’une vérité cinglante.

ENGLISH VERSION : In jazz, radical honesty is best represented by William Parker. His compositions are blunt, and they always display – albeit indirectly – strong political convictions. However, the double bass player will not play with your nerves. Neither will he up the stakes. His music, while full of awareness, is also infinitely humble. This sound poem gives a fresh example of the way languages are linked by what Parker calls “universal tonality”. Jazz, opera, and folk music coexist in this brilliantly crafted piece which re-examines the Trail of Tears, an important episode in the history of the United States of America, during which some 100.000 members of the Cherokee and Choctaw were forcibly relocated after being relentlessly and violently dispossessed. Parker’s account is blunt but full of love and searing truth.

Faire courir les riches et câliner les pauvres. Il y a pire profession de foi quand on pratique un spoken word tiré des trouvailles de Ted Joans ou de Amiri Baraka. The Rich Are Only Defeated When Running for Their Lives, déclare Anthony Joseph. Toujours prompt à faire revivre les mémoires anciennes, le Haut Parleur voit ses mots subtilement énoncés, trouver un soutien sans faille dans les cuivres, claviers et percussions. De la Caraïbe originelle à Londres qui l’abrite, Joseph trace des ponts. Deux cultures pour un même geste de création qui vient sonner en écho neuf et rageur au People United Will Never Be Defeated, scandé dans les rues au Chili en 1970, et partout depuis. Mais chez Anthony Joseph, la lutte sait aussi joyeusement (faire) danser.

ENGLISH VERSION : Have the rich run for their lives, and give the poor some TLC. A worthy motto, especially for a spoken word artist who draws influence from Ted Joans or Amiri Baraka. The Rich Are Only Defeated When Running for Their Lives, declares Anthony Joseph. Always keen to revive ancient memory, the Loud Speaker delivers his message clearly, supported as he is by a brass section, keyboards and percussions. Joseph draws bridges from his native Caribbean to London, where he currently resides. Two cultures merge into a unique creation, a fierce new echo of the motto People United Will Never Be Defeated which was first shouted during demonstrations in Chile in 1970, and has since spread all over the world. Anthony Joseph will make you dance merrily – which is also part of the struggle.
