Minors & Majors
The drawing of myself on the cover is made by an unknown waiter from Paris. I only remember that it happened in the beginning of the 90's in front of the cafe Kraft, somewhere behind the church St. Eustache. I wasn't even aware of him doing it. He just handed to me a piece of paper at the end of my busking in front of the little terrace, and maybe that drawing says it all in the end: somebody listened to it, captured it and made the whole moment eternal on a little piece of paper. Years later, I have enlarged it and turned it into the actual CD cover. The picture still looks the same and as if the very music still comes out of it. Maybe his unselfish act explains it all in the end, creating something beautiful and lasting, and I can only hope I did the same with these twelve songs. The accordion in some of the songs is played by Eric Nelson. More and more I listen to it, I can't beat the feeling of something bohemian and Parisian that makes the whole picture even more colorful. Performing live, recently we're privileged to have the beautiful sound of Dave Duffield's cornet carrying us through as if on a flying carpet. Thank you for listening. Faco.
