mili1 After about 20 albums and a 40-year career, the guitarist and composer PJ Gaucher undoubtedly released one of his most accomplished albums, with seven seasoned musicians of the french jazz scene. Because of health crisis, this opus has been carefully tweaked for long months. Always very inspired by Frank Zappa, PJ also enters here the impressionist musical world of Erik Satie. I highly recommend !! You're invited to read my french review on Dragonjazz magazine.
