In the Basque region where he hails from, right on the French-Spanish border by the Atlantic ocean, Sylvain Luc started out playing not jazz but all kinds of music for dancers with his elder brothers on accordion and drums. Hence this guitarist's tremendously original rhythmic and melodic approach. He can play anything from Bach to forgotten standards, and revive them all through his unconventional technique and total openness when improvising. Taking this CD's title as their band name, Luc and his partners have since 2001 created a repertoire that is always full of surprises, such as this highly creative and dancing "Brazil."
