Downtown Improvisations

As soon as the second lockdown ended (December 2020), I celebrated the newfound freedom by spending one day at the Downtown studio in Strasbourg recording some improvisations with the help of Didier Houbre. Here are the pieces that might find a place, who knows, in a future “real” album…

I spent more than ten years as professional Piano-Bar pianist on the prestigious “Le Bretagne” boat cruising long evenings along the Seine in Paris. This experience pushed me to explore many different musical genres and to train intensively my skills in improvisation. My improvisation on Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert received the Giulotto Price of the Pavia Music Festival in Italy in 1995.

Find here a portrait published in the CAES Magazine of CNRS describing my musical performance at the Gala at the Ranelagh Theatre in Paris (December 2017).
