What is most valuable is our diversity.
In an artistic project like this, what is most important, is the maximum so that the protagonists can express themselves and give the best of them. Aesthetics will always be the consequence of the truth, the truth is within the present and beauty lives in the same place. just be honest with yourself.
To this is added one last capital thing that fits in the sense of this dialogue of the diversity mentioned above and adds all its dimension .... You!
you, as each of us has its own history, its origins, its starting points, its respective stories, where you came from and where you will decide to go. We have all of these in common and at the same time in such different ways. We play and you, you have ways of listening ...
Recalculting the seven, it was recorded before March 2020 and mixed during the month of April of the same year.
The title given to the album also expresses poetically the different aspects of this work and what we live through. Firstly, the restart, the continuity and the evolution of a walk, "recalculate" but don't count, we count.
We mix but we weave, with accents, rhythms and colors from distant origins that nevertheless here, dance together.
The music performed here celebrates diversity in all points and has the power to be born in different ways in the ears of each listener, revealing in each one: places, smells, visions, feelings and varied sensations even addressing you all. Make no mistake, there is no elitism in this art form, well just close your eyes and let yourself be carried away by your senses and your spirits.
May the world continue to allow us.

Always a human story.
I was born in Vichy, in the Auvergne region - France, from an early age I wanted to study the saxophone and at the age of eight I started my musical studies. the first signs of passion for music occurred more or less at the age of five, listening to Sidney Bechet's albums repeatedly, thus discovering the soprano saxophone and consequently Jazz.
Music and this instrument were aready part of my history even before I know it.
At my request to attend music school, my grandfather Claude, who lived with us, revealed to me that he had played the soprano saxophone in the 1930s, his career as a professional musician was, unfortunately, interrupted by a tragic accident.
It is in a way with this heritage that I followed my path and gradually found my current form of expression.
Exactly five years ago i met Carlinhos Queiroz in July 2015 in Paris to participate in another musical project.Brazilian musician bringing his incredible musical and world citizen curriculum. At this moment, a relationship of the kind that we can call timeless has begun, both on the human plane, but equally and quickly from an artistic point of view. George Braque, didn't he say "With time, art and life don't change"?
