Shenandoah 02:54


I spent "le confinement" creating this album in a barn in the French countryside.

Like many people during this period, I wasn’t able to think much about the future, only the present and the past.

These songs are therefore personal journal entries, versions and visions of my wishes, fantasies and memories. Together they create a kind of modern mixtape of dreams, in every sense of the word, in which my trumpet, all alone in that barn, is a vulnerable presence, virtually and masterly supported by some of my closest musical collaborators around the world.
