Marc Antoine – Laguna Beach
Born in Paris later resident in Madrid now living near L.A. guitarist Marc Antoine is a global citizen in the true sense of word. His object of desire is specifically his new hometown Laguna Beach (2016).
This place to live is now in the center of his interest and thematic core of his new project. To fulfill his musical dream he got help from Gorden Campbell (drums), Roberto Vally (upright bass), Marco Basci (keyboards), furthermore bassist Armand Sabal-Lecco, saxophonist Greg Vail, percussionists Gumbi Ortiz and Richie Gajate Garcia, and special guests Philippe Saisse (keyboards on “Why Not,” “Deixa” and “New Morning”), Paul Brown (electric guitar solo on “This and That”), Rick Braun (trumpet on “Minority”) and Dutch harmonica master Tim Welvaars (on “Deixa”).
The musical journey begins with Why Not, the fusion point of acoustic guitar of Spanish heritage and the bluesy jazz. That acoustic guitar fits to contemporary jazz horns and piano one can hear note for note.
