Alain has always liked acoustic guitars, especially nylon strings, but also the twelve-string guitar (aka “folk” guitar). In his personal approach of jazz, he uses classical guitar techniques on the twelve steel strings, which is definitely one of the key features of his style.
No wonder that Alain is particularly fond of the luxuriant acoustic jazz of the 70’s, best represented, among others, by the ECM label. His compositions and playing arise from these influences.
Antoine is Alain’s son. As such, he fell into his father’s magic jazz cauldron and grew up as a fan of jazz music of all times.
His musical path has led him so far through a large part of Europe and to New-York City, playing with key jazz artists (Philip Catherine, Enrico Pieranunzi, …)
He received the « Sabam Jazz Award 2015 » for young talents.
Everything he hears becomes part of his extremely personal musical language, and his playing enhances Alain’s compositions.
