Quoting Stéphane Laporte about this international effort, originally released September 5, 2015, at SoundCloud, it is "a simple base track with leading ideas of giving tribute to French authors/ composers Maxime Leforestier and Claude Nougaro's wonderful melodies supporting awareness on important issues at their time ...and nowadays still it seems .... Further melodic routes were found by all through musical interactions ... I feel I owe so much recognition to these great artists who understood my first musical ideas ...and pushed them to a height I would never had imagined."

Merci, Stéphane! ♥
