Here are my 12 compositions from the record and a (very) brief description of each one.
Valse à jazzer (Jazzer Waltz): festive jazz waltz, inspired by Richard Galliano and Bill Evans
Insolitement vôtre (Unusually yours): energetic funky, the title…sounds good, that’s all!
Appellation Musette Nouveau (idem): title track, inspired by Richard Galliano’s New Musette… and by Beaujolais!
Chez Roberto (idem): Latin piece, guitar theme, multiple inspiration
Douceurs Montérégiennes (Montérégian sweetness): ride in 3/4, as gentle as a walk in the mountains
Tango-Swing (idem): energetic, modern, like the nuevo tangos of Piazzolla or Galliano
La Relâche (The SpringBreak): built on the model of a standard musette waltz, composed at the beginning of March…
Dualité claire (Clear Duality): 2 themes composed several years apart, 2 instruments (even 3) that respond to each other in solos, all of this harmonizing in a clear and limpid way
Balade d’été (Summer ride), it’s Summertime with my colors
Aube à Los Angeles (Dawn in Los Angeles), from dawn to early morning, in tribute to Jean-Luc Ponty
Jeux au Parc Molson (Games at Parc Molson), riff kept in a drawer for a long time and updated with recent additions, 2 children playing at throwing a ball
Néo-Swing (idem), a personal swing piece, the joy of living in 4/4
