Musical portraits: each diffusing extraordinary charm and surprising sophistication. Mystical portraits: each venturing into a musical language created at the moment. Pictured here are the influences of a friend, of a space, of a time, of a place -- of an interest to say it in rhythms, chord clashes and harmonics often ignored. There is no need to indulge in the absurdity of an artificial aestheticism when he can play. Whenever possible, leave them laughing. It will not be long before it becomes familiar, and in it one will find that ideal company that music is, when it echos your own solitude and fills it with its magic song. -- Y.T.
