“Everyone should have an experience like ‘The Heartbreakers’ in their musical life; creativity, passion, honesty, integrity, and a lot of fun.”
(Steve Ferrone – English drummer)

“When musicians such as Eric Clapton, Anita Baker, Jeffrey Osborne, George Benson and Chaka Khan searched for the best drummer they could find, their searches led them to Steve Ferrone.
Steve’s tasteful musicality and powerful groove has made him one of the most popular drummers in music today. Steve first came to international prominence while playing with the Average White Band during the 1970s.
Nowadays, he uses his talents as the drummer for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.”

This picture was shot at the end of “Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers” concert.
It was an amazing performance with extremely brilliant musicians and the audience allowed them to broke their hearts in happiness…

Those blue notes were performed by my friend Erik Truffaz and Christophe along the “Bassin de Neptune” (Neptune’s fountain) in the gardens of Versailles.
Christophe didn’t sing live since many years and he invited several prestigious guests to join him on stage.
It was a night to remember…

 

Christophe is a French famed singer and talented songwriter.
His first hit was “Aline” in 1965 and he is famous for his eternal songs “Les Paradis perdus” (“Lost Paradises” – 1973) and “Les Mots bleus” (“The Blue Words” – 1975).
Whenever he is performing he is illuminating the stage, gathering any kind of people from all generations.
Christophe is a decadent and flamboyant dandy who is a mysterious loner drifting apart from the showbiz scene.
He is notorious for being an uncontrollable rebel with panache and poetry.

“Sing the songs of joy to the Lord, serve the Name of the Lord, and become the servant of His servants.”
(Guru Nanak – founder of Sikhism and first of the ten Sikh Gurus, 1469-1539)
This musician was among a group of people playing music in front of the Harmandir Sahib, the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the holiest city in Sikhism located in the Indian state of Punjab.
It was a moment of bliss at Heaven’s gate…

A beautiful prayer sung by Satinder Sartaj:

The Idol

The Idol

 

This is one more portrait of Christophe.
Christophe is a French famed singer and talented songwriter.
His first hit was “Aline” in 1965 and he is famous for his eternal songs “Les Paradis perdus” (“Lost Paradises” – 1973) and “Les Mots bleus” (“The Blue Words” – 1975).
Whenever he is performing he is illuminating the stage, gathering any kind of people from all generations.
Christophe is a decadent and flamboyant dandy who is a mysterious loner drifting apart from the showbiz scene.
He is notorious for being an uncontrollable rebel with panache and poetry.

Christophe sings at the feet of the Eiffel tower:

Voici un autre portait de Christophe.
Christophe est un chanteur français connu et un talentueux parolier.
Son premier succes “Aline” est sorti en 1965, ensuite ses chansons éternelles comme “Les Paradis perdus” (1973) et “Les Mots bleus” (1975) lui ont permis de trouver une grande popularité.
Lorsqu’il se produit il illumine la scène, rassemblant un public de toutes sortes et de toutes générations. 
Christophe est un dandy décadent et flamboyant qui est un solitaire mystérieux en retrait de l’industrie du divertissement.
C’est un rebel incontrolable mais avec panache et poésie. 

 

Amazing Malcolm

Amazing Malcolm

 

This is a portrait of Malcolm Persson Braff, an amazing and talented jazz pianist.
Malcolm is perfoming piano in Erik Truffaz’ album “Benares” and this is how we met.
I took this picture recently, I find his features very interesting, only curves without angles, 
His “yogi” look distinguishes him by a solar happiness and reminds me one of the two yogins from the Upanishad, the one who pierce through the “sun”.

This is a link in order to drink the nectar of his music…

 

“YAY!”

"Yay!"

 

This is one more portrait of jazz trumpeter Erik Truffaz.

I was trying to catch the music in the image or at least to give a feeling of it.

In the past I attempted to do several pictures of my friend while he was palying the trumpet and I always found it quite difficult.

Mostly because he is always in motion with so many expressions following the music therefore it becomes a kind of challenge to get a nice composition with not too much of blur.

Those kind of pictures are done in the same conditions as sport photography and it requires many right elements to contribute to a good result.

I am still not satisfied of what I have done so far.

 

This picture is an opportunity to thank the new members of my photography page on FaceBook.

I know that most of you came because of my Benaras-Varanasi pictures and Erik’s last album is about the Eternal city.

“BENARES” is an amazing Indo-Western fusion of modern jazz with Indian classic performed by Indrani & Apurba Mukherjee, Malcom Braff and Erik Truffaz.

“Yay!” is the title of a track from this album.

This is a link to a video (which is not mine) where you can have a feeling about it.

 

Heaven is White

Heaven is White

 

This is another portrait of Christophe with the famous jazz trumpeter Erik Truffaz in the background.

My friend Erik invited Christophe with whom he often performed to sing “L’un dans l’autre” on his album “Arkhangelsk”.

The link of the video with English subtitles shows the recording of this beautiful and touching song.

Le paradis est blanc (Heaven is white) is a metaphor that we can listen among those words of poetry.

 

 

Voici un autre portrait de Christophe au côté du célèbre trompettiste de jazz Erik Truffaz.

Mon ami Erik a invité Christophe avec lequel il s’est souvent produit à chanter  “L’un dans l’autre” sur son album “Arkhangelsk”.

Le lien de la video montre l’enregistrement de cette chanson émouvante.

Le paradis est blanc (Heaven is white) est une métaphore que l’on peut entendre parmi ces mots de poésie.
