This album is the result of the meeting of three musicians at the IMEP Paris College of Music: Paul Oxby on double bass, Anaël Noury on drums and Fabrice Kormao on piano. They play and improvise on their original compositions as well as on jazz and Latin standards.

We would like to thank George Oxby and Angus Cockram for their graphic design skills, Alan Blum for recording some of the tracks and the whole team at Studio 7ème Ciel, Issy-les-Moulineaux, for recording, mixing and mastering the album. Fabrice Kormao
