After two years touring as a tenor with the Voice Messengers (a Paris vocal jazz big band), French guitarist, singer and composer Didier Verna comes back to his primary instrument, the guitar, leading a brand new group: the "@-quartet".
Accompanied by three of the most solicited sidemen from the Paris Jazz scene (Gilles Naturel on bass, Guillaume Naud on piano and David Georgelet on drums), Didier Verna offers a 100% original repertoire of contemporary, melodic jazz, in the vein of Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Mike Stern.
The first album of this new group has just been released, and is already unanimously acclaimed:
Congrats ! Very very good album. I like it a lot. -- Glenn Ferris
Nice sounds, great playing ! -- Greg Lyons
I think this is great quality Jazz. -- Yves Carbonne
Quite impressive ! Pretty good musicians with you too... -- Mike Matheny (RadioioJazz)
