With old and original instruments

I try to recreate (and not to reproduce) the sound and spirit of the first blues, from 1920 to 1950.

Discover Elmore D.

I have given six albums. One of them has been produced in the USA by Jerry Hall (The Elmore D Band, Pacific Blues Records, 2005) and a compilation of five Cds has been realized by Frémeaux et Associés (L’intégrale cåzî complète, Paris, 2015).
