French jazz musician Misja Fitzgerald Michel pays tribute to the magic of Nick Drake's music on this mostly instrumental album where Meshell Ndegeocello lends her voice and a few words to a song -- a manner of saying that the voice of the Englishman is heard first and foremost in the notes and the rhythms he left to posterity. The concept of bare simplicity is one of the key ideas that brought Misja Fitzgerald Michel to Nick Drake's world. In his works, no matter how elaborate they may be, the Englishman never yielded to the temptation of superficiality or verbosity. The acoustic guitar is at the core of a disc that is much more than just another guitar record -- first, because here and there, other influences can be heard; the barrier-breaking cellist Olivier Koundouno, the arranger and lighting technician Nicolas Repac or the songwriter Hugh Coltman. Misja, far from the isolated ghetto of "guitar music," chose to adventure onto the boundless fields of musicality alone. His aesthetic choices stem from that adventure, that is, quite simply, a yearning for poetry and sensation.
