The kind of an album that proves why Marco Di Marco is one of our favorite pianists ever – a sublime Paris session from 1970, recorded in an expansively expressive style! Di Marco has a way of penning tunes and handling the keys that's like few other players we can think of – a post-Bill Evans sense of freedom and grace, but one that's also always inflected by a strong sense of soul – one that keeps Marco's work from just being flights of fancy, and always directs the tunes with some sense of a groove, however subtle. As with some of his best trio
sides, he's working here with the rhythm team of Jacky Sampson and Charles Saudrais – both borrowed from the trio
of Georges Arvanitas, but giving the record a round, warm tone that they hardly ever brought to any of Georges' records! Tracks are all originals, and include "Fontainebleau", "Un Autunno A Parigi", "Le Chat Qui Peche", "Valse Pour Quatre Amis", and "Boul Mich".
