One of the very first French rock albums to be released. A French blues album produced by 4 "hired" musicians who were successful in expressing their idea of blues in a sensitive and original way. Blues with a hint of rock, close to the music of the best blues rock groups of the time (FLEETWOOD MAC, John MAYALL, Ainsley DUNBAR) and with a fantastic Claude OLMOS on guitar. He displays all of his talent on a superb piece "Middle earth" which goes beyond the musical bounds of traditional blues.

This excellent bassist who formerly distinguished himself with Christian ESCOUDÊ and is now playing with OFFERING plays a very Brazilian jazz on his first album. Note the presence of prestigious guests such as LOCKWOOD brothers...
|LP||Dolores||(Cerise JJG 003)||1985|
This close-knit, efficient line up plays a modern, powerful, perfectionist jazz and offers swinging themes in the jazzy tradition on which the bassist particularly distinguishes himself.
|LP||Groupie de sansonnet||(Disneyland WD 10.523)||1983|
SPEED LIMIT's former drummer offers an excellent melodic, elaborate, elegant and sophisticated fusion music in the same vein as SECRET OYSTER, NOVA, SCOPE and mixed with some reminiscences of ZAO or MAGMA (at the time of the "live" album). George JINDA, accompanied by J.L BUCCHI and Y. SEFFER and other renowned musicians, alternates energetic and powerful tracks propelled along by a rumbling bass (played by Didier BATARD) with more delicate and more intimist passages.
|LP||The Wheel of Love||(Motors MT 44051)||1976|
His music is as funny as his name but seems very "old" now.
Françoise JOLY offers a refined fusion music with varied atmospheres and subtle arrangements. It sounds very American although this group full of energy plays a music with strong European influences. Alongside Françoise JOLY on keyboards, Pierre-Olivier GOVIN (sax) and François LAIZEAU (drums) display the entire scope of their talent as musicians.
