A very clever man wrote that in 1736, when the world was younger and wiser. Outside of his native country, Voltaire has an unkind reputation as a scoffer and nay-sayer, when in fact his whole life was devoted to the liberation of the individual and the breaking down of meaningless authority. His scorn was reserved for artificial boundaries, of which genre is just one, seemingly more innocent than race or the difference between clergy and laity, but still toxic and corrosive.    

Erik Truffaz grew up in Voltaire country and breathed in that same air. His life's work, which can now be traced back across three decades of recording, has always been about the transcendence of genre and the elimination of that hierarchical assumption, still common in jazz (and in the pop world's notion that the singer is always the de facto leader of the group), that music is made by isolated individuals of genius backed up by journeyman colleagues. The Erik Truffaz Quartet was, and remains in its new incarnation, an entity. It fulfils the simple qualitative standard of being somehow larger than the sum of its component parts. In the same way, Truffaz's music has always been larger than the influences which go to its making. He does not simply don a new creative persona in order to incorporate hip-hop or techno sounds, in the way that some naive tourists put on 'native' costume before venturing out to
take photographs and eat 'local' food.  

A measure of Truffaz's achievement, and that of his Quartet colleagues [bassist] Marcello Giuliani, [drummer] Arthur Hnatek and [keyboard man] Benoit Orboz is that personal integrity is never in doubt. Whatever the material approached, whatever 'guest' voice is deployed, there is never any question who is playing. Stopped at a border, which itself would be ironic, of course, Truffaz would scarcely need to show a passe-partout. A couple of phrases on the trumpet would be enough to establish identity. In the same way Giuliani and Muller have a locked-in empathy that never fails but which allows them to move, on occasion, far from the so-called comfort zone of style and into fresh configurations. One can hear this on The Dawn and Bending New Corners and one can hear it on the album you're holding.    

Long-standing fans will already have noticed what appears to be a mistake, for the familiar configuration of the Erik Truffaz Quartet is not the one given above. This time, the group has incorporated - and never was that term meant more literally - a new member. This isn't the first time they've had to deal with change. The replacement of Patrick Muller with Benoit Orboz in 2012 was an event that could have been seismic, but in retrospect seems almost like a natural evolution. Marc Erbetta, the veteran drummer, has moved on to other projects, his place taken by the New York-based Arthur Hnatek, a one-man melting pot of a musician who brings fresh perspectives and challenges to the group. In fact, it's mistaken to say that Erbetta's place has been taken, when in fact Hnatek has already carved out a fresh new space of his own, and one can hear on these tracks the sharp-eared Giuliani and the quicksilver Orboz making space for him; not moving aside politely to accommodate the new guy, but adapting the group language to a beat and a musicality that is subtly different to what we've heard before from ETQ.  

Listen to the rhythms on "Pacheco" or "Doni Doni", and set them against the urban soundscape of "Fat City". This isn't a group that indulges in musical tourism or in chance snapshots of exotic spaces. It's an ensemble that brings and adapts its own stride to different environments. One walks differently in the city than one walks in the country, or across a desert. Voltaire knew this and knew that the sound of speech, the metre of verse and the cadence of music are all in some way aligned to the pattern the feet make and the interaction of feet and breath. This is the story Elias Canetti, a modern Voltaire, told in Crowds and Power.     

And again, just as rapper Nya added a sharp new element to four of the tracks on Bending New Corners (who'll forget hearing "Sweet Mercy" or "Siegfried" for the first time?) and again on Arkhangelsk here the group welcomes in the Malian star Rokia Traoré with her magnificent Bambara throb, and her friend and fellow-countryman Oxmo Puccino. There in "Complément du verbe", Oxmo speaks something like a manifesto not just for the group and its musical philosophy but for a whole tendency in music-without-frontiers: "Nous créons la matière dans laquelle tu puises ton plaisir / Qui nous nourrit . . . " Rokia Traoré starts the journey in that unforgettable opening to "Comptine 1", a setting-out across great spaces reduced to the intimacy of a song. The history of Mali is a little like the history of a great music group, tales of movement and contention, shared futures and shifting centres of gravity. The story of the Bambara empire is told in Maryse Conde's beautiful novel Segu. It is about solidarity above all, which is not the same as nationalism or even patriotism, or an insistence on 'official' culture. Those things came with the colonial regimes. But the old rhythms also spoke of freedom and one hears it.

There is no official culture in the Erik Truffaz Quartet. It is, like the town of Ségou a meeting place and a centre for the trade of ideas and impressions, storytelling and craft, refuge and fresh adventure. The words of Voltaire at the head of these notes are taken from the preface to his L'enfant prodigue, a charming five-act comedy in alexandrines which was only acknowledged as Voltaire's when it was published some years later. How is this relevant? Is the suggestion that Truffaz is a prodigy, or that ETQ is simply prodigious? It's more than that. Where Miles Davis - an obvious forerunner - stamped his identity on every piece of music that bore his name, like a graffiti artist getting his 'tag' up on a public place, and often did so with just one or two trumpet tones, Truffaz is not concerned with self-advertisement. The individual voices of trumpet, keys, bass and drums are not so important as what they make together. The separate parts are all exquisitely done but they are not simply a blank wall on which one large name is to be written. Walls again! Boundaries. Here is a group that consistently and joyously breaks them down. To adapt our great writer again: if the Erik Truffaz Quartet did not exist, it would be necessary to invent it . . .

Pravna podlaga

Podlaga za obvestilo je spremenjeni Zakon o elektronskih komunikacijah (Uradni list št. 109/2012; v nadaljevanju ZEKom-1), ki je začel veljati v začetku leta 2013. Prinesel je nova pravila glede uporabe piškotkov in podobnih tehnologij za shranjevanje informacij ali dostop do informacij, shranjenih na računalniku ali mobilni napravi uporabnika.

Kaj so piškotki?

Piškotki so majhne datoteke, pomembne za delovanje spletnih strani, največkrat z namenom, da je uporabnikova izkušnja boljša.

Piškotek običajno vsebuje zaporedje črk in številk, ki se naloži na uporabnikov računalnik, ko ta obišče določeno spletno stran. Ob vsakem ponovnem obisku bo spletna stran pridobila podatek o naloženem piškotku in uporabnika prepoznala.

Poleg funkcije izboljšanja uporabniške izkušnje je njihov namen različen. Piškotki se lahko uporabljajo tudi za analizo vedenja ali prepoznavanje uporabnikov. Zato ločimo različne vrste piškotkov.

Vrste piškotkov, ki jih uporabljamo na tej spletni strani

Piškotki, ki jih uporabljamo na tej strani sledijo smernicam:

1. Nujno potrebni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki omogočajo uporabo nujno potrebnih komponent za pravilno delovanje spletne strani. Brez teh piškotov servisi, ki jih želite uporabljati na tej spletni strani, ne bi delovali pravilno (npr. prijava, nakupni proces, ...).

2. Izkustveni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki zbirajo podatke, kako se uporabniki vedejo na spletni strani z namenom izboljšanja izkustvene komponente spletne strani (npr. katere dele spletne strani obiskujejo najpogosteje). Ti piškotki ne zbirajo informacij, preko katerih bi lahko identificirali uporabnika.

3. Funkcionalni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki omogočajo spletni strani, da si zapomni nekatere vaše nastavitve in izbire (npr. uporabniško ime, jezik, regijo) in zagotavlja napredne, personalizirane funkcije. Tovrstni piškotki lahko omogočajo sledenje vašim akcijam na spletni strani.

4. Oglasni ali ciljani piškotki

Tovrstne piškotke najpogosteje uporabljajo oglaševalska in družabna omrežja (tretje strani) z namenom, da vam prikažejo bolj ciljane oglase, omejujejo ponavljanje oglasov ali merijo učinkovitost oglaševalskih akcij. Tovrstni piškotki lahko omogočajo sledenje vašim akcijam na spletu.

Nadzor piškotkov

Za uporabo piškotkov se odločate sami. Piškotke lahko vedno odstranite in s tem odstranite vašo prepoznavnost na spletu. Prav tako večino brskalnikov lahko nastavite tako, da piškotkov ne shranjujejo.

Za informacije o možnostih posameznih brskalnikov predlagamo, da si ogledate nastavitve.
