Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Pierrick Pedron has long been one of the most respected and in-demand jazz musicians in France. His latest album encompasses bop, funk, jazz, rock, pop and Afro pop. Recorded in Brussels and Paris with the help of a few faithful accomplices, he sculpts a state of the art sound using the groove as a guideline. On And The, this virtuoso saxophonist proves again that he is an inventive composer, a sound innovator and a catalyst of the music of our time.
