Album Notes
12 titles mainly signed by the leader himself. The various themes -biguine, like "Le Rocher d'Ayers", afro jazz (in “Il Palio” or “Mafate”), binaries (“Expansion”, “Nomade”..), tango (“Piazotango”) or definitely funky (“King Luis” and “Chasseur de têtes”, an admirative nod to Herbie Hancock, that is also used as the Interlude of the album- mix with more meditative titles (“A regret”, “Spirit Hommes”).
The album ends with the second movement of the "Sonate pour 2 pianos" (played solo here !) and an aerial version of "Le Rocher d'Ayers" as a bonus track.
