After two years touring with the Voice Messengers vocal jazz big band, French guitarist, singer and composer Didier Verna comes back to his primary instrument, the guitar, as the leader of a brand new group: the Didier Verna "@-quartet".With three of the most solicited sidemen in the Paris Jazz scene (Gilles Naturel on double-bass, Guillaume Naud on piano and David Georgelet on drums), Didier Verna offers a 100% original repertoire of melodic, contemporary jazz, in the direct vein of Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Mike Stern.The @-quartet's first album has just been released and is already unanimously acclaimed:
