After his electronic experiences, De Wilde comes back with his trio and acoustic jazz lovers are delighted. The album contains outstanding guest star appearances such as Laurent Robin (Michel Jonasz, Michel Potal), Darryl Hall (Hank Jones, Elizabeth Kontomanou) among others.A very good album where a variety of styles (groove, blues, reggae, swing, free) find in the performance of this trio a unite and compact sonority. A genuine trio of a modern jazz that is open to the world and curious of everything around.
