Although he has long been famous on the French pop scene, this guitarist is nonetheless open to the world of musics. Just listen to the albums he made under his name, instrus that evoke other climates, between experimental improvisations and temptations world folk. What makes us open our ears, as on this selection of five favorite tracks («I’d love to add Roland Kirk’s Root Strata, next time!»), which opens wide the sonic panorama.


Jimmy Giuffre
Gotta Dance


«I love Jimmy Giuffre, especially during this period with Jim Hall and Bob Brookmeyer. The way he recreates an imaginary landscape out of his texan roots (country and old time music) and melts it into his very singular jazz chamber music dazzles me.»

Milton Nascimento & Lo Borges
Nuvem Cigana


«I will always love pop music as long as it’s as inspired and creative as this amazing masterpiece made by this brazilian dream team. Their melodies are an incomparable treat.»

Eduardo Mateo
De Nosotros Dos


«Eduardo Mateo was an Uruguayan singer who recorded most of his albums in the seventies. I discovered him during a trip in Buenos Aires when I was not in the greatest mental shape. Mateo’s music cheered me up and completely reversed my state of mind. And I’m a big fan ever since.»

Kathleen Ferrier
Der Abschied (Mahler)

«I’m aware this is not a typical “vinyl fan” pick but this version of Mahler’s das Lied von der Erde is one of the most wonderful piece of music I know. Kathleen Ferrier’s voice is darker and heartbreaking than ever.»

Sonny Sharrock


«Ok Sonny Sharrock is one of my favorite guitarists. He’s got the most intense playing I’ve ever heard – which doesn’t exclude beauty and sense of humour. Some people can’t stand Linda’s screams on this album, I personally quite enjoy them
