In 1978, after a long 18-year stay in Africa, we returned to France and I resumed being a professional musician in Nice, as a self-employed music professor and sporadic performer.
Let me mention two beautiful "encounters":
He gave me the opportunity to perform with him and play "Chamber Music". These duos would often be reinforced by other great artists of his network, soloists of the Nice Opera or at the Monaco Philharmonic.
It was a treat that will always brighten my memories.
Thank you, Boris, for making me play in concert with you.
My thanks go also to you, Ginette ESKENAZI, for giving me your excellent advice and analysis, your affection and your encouragement during the preparation of these concerts.
Together with Marie Pierre DELCAUSSE, Flutist and Benoit MACHUEL, cellist, we performed two concerts: one at DRAP near NICE and the other at the Conservatoire de SETE.
There were numerous performances also with Edouard DALMASSO (Fl), Michèle SENNEPIN (Cello) and Alain SENNEPIN (Fl)
In 1991... let's talk Jazz again
This was a time of any concerts as well :
My career as a soloist continued at the same time, for receptions or events in miscellaneous Palaces:
In 2007, with Daniel CHAUVET at the Contrabass, we founded the "Soft-Jazz-Duo" and we continued to partake in the "Gérard BREAUDAT 5tet", a successor formation to "Swing-Parade".
In November 2010, my wife started a very long journey...
In 2012, I moved from NICE to ANGERS.
In 2013, I joined the "LAYON JAZZ BAND", a "Big-band" of 19/20 musicians directed by .... with the vocals ....
In 2016, nice encounter with Marielle DECHAUME : I played along with her, in particular during a concert at "GECKO'S" of Karine Guillet in ANGERS.
In 2018, health issues had some impacts on my activities, and would push me to retire some...
But still playing for "Private sessions"!
LIFE . MUSIC. YOU ALL... THANKS
