For many years, Alain Jean-Marie has traveled the paths that lead from the West Indies to jazz. A traveler of music, Patrice Caratini, for his part, continues to explore the relationship between writing and improvisation. In the company of percussionist Roger Raspail, the double bassist and pianist compare the musical languages born from Euro-African-American history, playing mirrors between jazz and African heritage. On the works born from this story and on original compositions, carried by the improvisations of the piano, the pulsation of the double bass and the struck skins of the percussionist, the three musicians take up the uninterrupted thread of a secular musical conversation to bring their tribute. .
