Known for his brilliant ability to blend world music with jazz and downtempo Christophe does not like to label his music and stick to one genre. “My inﬂuences have always been very wide and I never liked the idea of being stuck in one style. I’m more like a musical digital nomad who likes to freely experiment the moment as it comes. Depending where my mind has been traveling and what inﬂuences me at the time” says Christophe.
Jazz has always been a big part of his life and his guitar playing as deﬁnitely been inﬂuenced by it. “I’ve always been fascinated by the colors and sound of Jazz and as a guitarist by the technicality of this music”
As a producer his sound is miles away from Jazz. He gets his technique & inﬂuences from Lounge, electronic music and even pop. The mix of the two is what he calls “Jazzy Lounge”
The “Reminiscence” album was a strong step into that direction . This new album “Soul To Soul” is another attempt, trying to go even a step further and reach to the planet “Smooth Jazz”. From “Jazzy Lounge” to “Smooth Jazz” the order can be very thin and a very interesting journey to travel. “I certainly enjoyed the trip and can’t wait to see where this is going to take me in the future”
