Well, I'm truly a lucky guy ! In my life, I've had the great good fortune to always be at the right place, at the right time, with fantastic musicians. I'm always interested in working in as many various different musical (especially jazz!) contexts as I can.
This has brought me into contact with a lot of beautiful people from around the world...the ultimate blessing!
