Never thought I’d appear in French press so soon since the tour at the beginning of 2020! ????
Happy to see the saxophone sextet by Jérôme Masco and project Exchange of Happiness, led by friend Félix Robin music, where I had the pleasure to record a tune of mine “Whiskey Wine”????????, to be featured in Le Républicain – Rédaction de Langon newspaper. It was a lot of fun to record the compositions and connect with great musicians. Love the French spirit! They will always find a way to connect and celebrate that.

Can’t wait for things to settle down and us going back on road! France!
Here’s an excerpt from the article as posted by Jérôme:
“During the confinement, La Réole native musicians showed creativity”
“Musicians from La Réole region have published several must-hear projects. One of the bands, Exchange of Happiness, has published several videos inviting musicians playing from their homes. The result: thausends+ of views during the confinement.
Jérôme Mascotto – also a member of the collective – did his best with the spare time. He’s published three compositions with one particularity: nothing but woodwind. No drum, guitar, nor the bass. A real challenge for composing, without rehearsal. Each musician received her/his part, combining solos and accompaniment.
In the last video, musicians came from all over the world (Russia, Uruguay, Germany, Latvia and Poland). A fantastic outcome!”
