Summer Festivals

Hi Dears, hope you are having a good time,

My Summer in the French Riviera brought some very nice concerts. I have been selected by the judges of 3 Jazz Festivals Contests- Nice Jazz, Caval'air jazz and Jazz a venir a Porquerolles , got be finalist and performed to the public and the judges in all 3. In fact, the selection have been based in my own compositions that are included on my CD Rio /Reykjavik. To have own compositions is a major requirement to participate in this kind of Festival Contest in France. To be selected it was already an award for me and I was very glad. Congrats to all finalists and winners.

Nevertheless, it was missing here with me , my Icelandic Jazz musicians with whom I worked for many years and with whom I got a perfect musical connexion. Since they are in Iceland and could not come to play with me , I performed with different French musiciens and since we don't play together so often and we did not have enough time to rehearsals , of course it was difficult to win something . Another thing that made is difficult is the fact that in Iceland I had a JAZZ Band and I was working with the leading Jazz musicians of Reykjavik. I believe It would have made the all difference to have them playing with me.

Anyway, thanks to all different musiciens that participated with me in those 3 Festivals.

I need to thanks specially the musiciens of my Trios: Pierre Palvair and Alain Caruba that help me to make a good performer in the Cavalaire Jazz and a big thanks to Georges Ferrero and Luciano Dantas that helped me to make the best performance of all , playing with me in the Nice Jazz Festival Contest. It was  really a very good feeling and I was very happy playing with them and we got many compliments for that performance.

I don't have any plans to make new inscriptions to participate in this kind of contests anymore, but it was worth the experience. We have make it.

We got the finals. "Le'ts pass to another thing" as they say in France.

New projects are coming. Let's do it!
