After some years of working, thinking, and waiting, I decided this year to record my first album as a leader.
I wanted to answer to the question « Who am I ? » by trying to write compositions that would fit me and represent my past.
I didn’t want to neglect the musical influences that I had since my childhood, and that’s why you’ll hear a music where Jazz is mixed with hip/hop, rock or even classical music.
To record that album I had the chance to have some amazing musicians that I also appreciate a lot on a human level :
Shai Maestro (piano and fender rhodes)
Gilad Hekselman (guitar)
John Ellis (saxophone and bass clarinet)
Chris Smith (acoustic bass and electric bass)
I had also with me some special guests, that I really appreciate on the same level :
Meak (rap) and Athena Campanella (vocals) – who happens to be my sister !
The album was recorded on the 23rd of March 2012 at « System Two Studios » in New York, and was mixed and mastered by Philippe Gaillot at « Studio Recall », in the south of France (Pompignan).
The voices were recorded at « Zac Sound » by Zacharie Ouachekradi in Chartres (near Paris, France).
At this point, to put the album out, I need a little help from you guys (see details below).
You can hear extracts of the album on this page or on my website :
