Pacific is a tribute to some of my heroes, whose presence comes
to bear continually on my work. The list includes Lenny Tristano, Lee
Konitz, Paul Desmond, and Gil Evans.
Evans was not on the list of musicians who originally motivated my project, but he cropped up when I started writing the very first notes.
Not only could I hear colours similar to the ones he used, but most of all the shadow of his collaboration with Miles Davis felt more present the more I wrote, so much so that it ended up enveloping this nascent music completely.

This is about creating personal and original music which contains in its architecture the quirks that are my trademark but which is consciously under the influence of the heritage that forged me. Under its influence, yes, but still free and inventive, always looking for a new sound.

Recorded and mixed by Olivier Ménard and studio Corner Box on January 12-13 2015.
Mastering by Pierre Vandewaeter at studio Lakanal, Montpellier (France).
