Finally Pierre Bensusan and Didier Malherbe share the responsibility of a CD. Until now, Didier, beautiful with wind instruments, has been a loyal collaborator but the opportunity for a tour including a concert at New Morming, one of the most prominent jazz club in Paris, made possible arrangements in which flute and sax stand out more. It is certainly interesting that the CD was released in two graphically very similar versions. Color photos are made by Zapo while, inside the booklet, the black and white photos - taken during the concert - are by Daniel Cordeau.

 

Finalmente Bensusan e Didier Malerbe condividono la responsabilità di un cd. Fino ad ora Didier, splendido negli strumenti a fiato, è stato un fedele collaboratore ma l’occasione di un concerto al “New Morming”, uno dei club jazz più in vista di Parigi, rendeva possibili arrangiamenti in cui flauto e sax risaltassero maggiormente. Si tratta di un cd sicuramente interessante che è pubblicato in due versioni, graficamente molto simili. Le foto a colori sono di Zapo mentre quella interna al booklet, scattata durante il concerto in B/N, è di Daniel Cordeau.
