‘Brothers’ is the next stage after the release of Géraud Portal’s Fort Greene Story. A result of a trip to New York in 2013 to the home of the legendary bassist Bill Lee. Géraud Portal and Etienne Déconfin joined like-minded jazz musicians, including saxophonists Lee Arnold and Ben Solomon. Fort Greene Story was born out of this stay in the heart of New York and the special atmosphere of the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn. The energy provided by this first experience has allowed Gerald Portal and Etienne Déconfin to work on ‘Brothers’
“The starting point of each song is an emotion, related to one or more persons.”
‘Brothers’ expresses the notion of fraternity, of sharing between musicians and listeners.
