What we offer

My live exibition is a rare opportunities to discover the magic sounds of harmonica in Jazz music.
My main desire is to create with my harmonica and my group a good sound in order to relax the audience , convey joy and serenity , and lead the audience on a trip around the world with the sounds ! I propose a repertoire of songs refined extracts from Swing, Brazilian music (bossa nova) , Pop songs, and some of my compositions. Ideal accompaniment to appreciate fine and sophisticated acoustic music in form of concert or as accompanying of public and private high-level events, in small or large ambient.

In concert, I play songs from repertoire of Sinatra, Jobim, Beatles, Armstrong, Legrand, Bowie, Wonder, Porter , Brubeck reinterpretated with the sound of my Chromatic Harmonica.

In form of concert in theatre or festival, I can play one set of one hour and half. In conventions and parties I can divide the performance, and play three sets of 30 minutes.

My groups are formed:
DUO: Harmonica and Guitar (Alternative: Harmonica and Pianoforte)
TRIO: The duos above with more the Double Bass
QUARTET: harmonica, Guitar (or piano) Double Bass and Drums (or percussion).
