    Unless its innate to him, Pascal Mohy learnt to handle his emotions and above all to expose them with pertinence and talent. He combines sensitivity and intelligence with grace and dexterity. There is nothing demonstrative about him. Modesty before anything else. And depth above all. It's only normal that at the head of his new trio, Pascal Mohy easily finds a balance between tradition and modernity. For his first album as a leader, the standards naturally embrace original compositions… and vice versa.

    The first time she sang onstage, it was in a musical about Jacques Brel. Now, 25 years later, Dani Klein, the voice of Vaya Con Dios, is finally putting out her own album in French.

But after two years of non-stop collaboration with top musicians and of waking up in the middle of the night to scribble down just the right word, Comme on est venu... is ready to prove that a powerhouse voice laden with emotion and combined with poetic lyricism carries music far across language borders.

    With Sal La Rocca (cb), Jeroen Van Herzeele (sax) & Lieven Venken (dr) Sal La Rocca (double bass player & composer), initially briefly interested in guitar rock, he discovered the jazz genre in the early 1980s. Sal traded the guitar for the bass and taught himself the jazz idiom, inspired by the model of Paul Chambers. La Rocca tirelessly built on his abilities as a musician, and it did not take long before he was noticed playing alongside Toots THIELEMANS, Philip CATHERINE, Steve GROSSMAN, Lee KONITZ, Dani KLEIN featuring Vaya Con Dios…
