Extracts of the CD Review NOW THEN, by Terrell Holmes, The New York City Jazz Record:
«Pianist and composer Claude Diallo displays a striking array of talents on his new release, Now Then. His trio, the Situation, plays with a refreshing cohesiveness and dynamism and Diallo leads the way with his robust technique, cleverness and palpable sense of joy.»
«the Situation is at its best»
«The band really stretches out, playing with its greatest fluidity and opulence»
Extracts of a concert review by Michael Hasler, St. Galler Tagblatt, Switzerland
«Await some modern, beautiful and creative original compositions played by a band that enjoys every second of their performance at high energy»
«What the three succeeded to do at the Tonhalle that evening, was musically something of the most precious, that young Jazz musicians from Eastern Switzerland brought to the scene within the last 10 to 15 years...»
After their first CD release «Traveling with Music» in 2008, the band released two new recordings: «Now Then» and «Claude Diallo Situation with Andy McGhee» in the summer of 2010. In addition to this, they finished their first DVD production «Claude Diallo Situation Live at Tonhalle St. Gallen» in December 2010.
Following several successful tours in Switzerland and throughout Europe, the trio was invited to perform in Asia. With concerts in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, the trio delighted fans, highlighting their tour with a performance at the «Taipei International Jazzfestival», a special invitation concert for the Swiss President Doris Leuthard in Singapore and a new CD production «Claude Diallo Situation, Live at No Black Tie, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia» that was released through the label «No Black Tie Records» in 2011 and features Malayan alto sax player Julian Chan.
Earlier in 2010, the three young European musicians were given the honor to tour Switzerland and France with tenor sax legend Andy Mc Ghee (legendary performer with giants such as Lionel Hampton and Woody Hermann) and in 2011 the band was chosen among 12 of the best jazz groups from Switzerland to participate in the «Kind of Jazz» series at the legendary Kaufleuten in Zurich, Switzerland.
The trio has also been privileged to play with Denzal Sinclaire and Brad Leali among other great musicians. The Claude Diallo Situation has achieved a high, and reputable performance standard, thrilling audiences worldwide.
