Romane & Richard Manetti ~ Pere et Fils ~ CD
Like Flamenco, Manouche Jazz is a musical culture frequently handed down from father to son. On this recording, Romane presents his son Richard, and the father to son exchange is made all the more poignant by the musical presence of contrabassist Marc-Michel Lebevillon. A family friend just back from a dangerous illness, Lebevillon plays with a passion one seldom hears from a bassist in any style of music. His performance alone is worth the price of admission.
