Welcome to the brand new series of videos called "DUOS WITH FRIENDS”. The idea is to invite musicians with whom I don't normally perform live and play re-arranged jazz standards or original compositions.

The videos are released on the first day of every month on my Youtube channel.

Episode 1 - with Mareille Merk

For the very first episode Mareille and I played our version of “Donna Lee”, from the one and only Charlie Parker. I composed the melody at the beginning and at the end of the song and Mareille wrote a second voice for the main theme.

Episode 2 - with Dave Hasler

Here's the second episode of “DUOS WITH FRIENDS”. My guest is Swiss guitarist Dave Hasler and we’re playing one of his original compositions. In case you're wondering in which time signature the piece is, here's the answer: 11/8.
