Re: [Harp-L] CD: 'Somewhere on the edge of time'

Thanks again for your very encouraging words, Joe !

Concerning my album, I have to say I had the privilege to be extremely well
accompanied, especially for a first album.
I don't know for the US, but Dominique Di Piazza is a living legend in
Europe & Asia, Remi Toulon is one of the best french pianists (qualified "a
wonderful swing machine" by Rhoda Scott), and I also had Sebastien Charlier
as a guest, who played a very impressive chorus.

As you said, the CD is available on my site.

One can also listen to extracts here :

Concerning Antonio's album, the themes were so difficult to be played on a
diatonic that after long hours of training, playing exactly with him didn't
seem so complex :-)

Best regards,

Jerome Peyrelevade
