With a solid experience as an arranger (vocal jazz band Shades) and also as a sideman for many bands, it was time for the guitarist to take the step of composition. It is thus in trio «guitar/double bass/drums» that the latter chooses to propose his original repertoire inspired by the music and the play of musicians based in New-York but also the many collaborations with musicians and music he has worked with in recent years.
In collaboration with bassist Arthur Henn and drummer Gabriel Westphal, the trio has a desire to place the melody at the heart of the compositions and without ever turning away. This is not a "power trio" but the creation of a real musical alchemy between the three musicians and where the roles are never defined.
