Me, as a kid, I was much more interested in watching cartoons on TV. I was so angry when I couldn't because of the music, that strange music for old people...
I was 15 when he passed away... and lots of things has changed for me then.
I inherited his record collection and start to build up passions for both music and photography who were his two great passions too. Suddenly Jazz stops being a strange music for old people but one of the most amazing musical style ever created!
I owe him a very lot to who I am nowadays and on what I'm working on. So, to dedicate him a selection on this place is the least that I can do.
The 3 firsts tracks are coming from records I get from him and the 2 last ones are the ones I dedicate to him and to his memory. I sincerely hope you'll enjoy.
