Guitarist Nicolas Bourel presents his first album with original compositions, accompanied by Martin Berauer on electric and upright bass and Daniel Dray on drums as well as Julien Varaillon Laborie on saxophone as a special guest, after having explored the American jazz standard repertory for many years. Under the guidance of Lenny Popkin, he studied the music of jazz greats Lennie Tristano, Lester Young, Charlie Christian and Charlie Parker.
