The BLUES, mother of all modern music

The Blues is a strong music, very strong. It was designed in the pain of the occupation of American Indian’s lands by Europeans, and in the suffering of Africans who were imported as slaves from the year 1600. This music contains an enormous emotional burden. Its power is such that it continues to live and grow today, and to be the music of reference.


A good example of pacific revolution and of how to put one’s soul into music.

Play or just know this music helps to understand where the sound and phrases that make us vibrate in contemporary music are coming from.

The CD's flagship of guitar orchestration in today's music. In this avalanche of guitars (acoustic, electric guitar and synth guitar), jfm breaks barriers and the BLUES is always present even in the most complex parts.The pieces on this CD were often played in concert in the most varied orchestrations. Well illustrated by ZEP, guitarist and creator of Titeuf
