Digital Release : «Metaswing» out now !

Here is Metaswing, my new album !
From now on, you can download it in Hi-Res in the format of your choice.
I wish you a good listening and I'll wait for your feedback with great interest.

Meta (from Greek: μετά) = It expresses, at the same time, reflection, change and succession, the act of going beyond, beside, between or with.

Swing = This term is used to describe the sense of propulsive rhythmic "feel" or "groove", especially when the music creates a visceral response such as feet-tapping or head-nodding.

Included in this release:
  • A 6 tracks CD album with cardboard sleeve.
  • Immediate download of 6 tracks album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or any other format you like.
