Pierre Bérard wird bei einem Autounfall schwer verletzt und liegt im Sterben. Vor seinem inneren Auge sieht er noch einmal die Stationen seines Lebens. Dinge, die ihm bis dahin belanglos erschienen, haben auf einmal einen ganz anderen Stellenwert…
Pierre (Michel Piccoli), architecte d'une quarantaine d'années, est victime d'un accident de voiture. Ejecté du véhicule, dans le coma, au bord de la route, il revoit son passé et les deux femmes qui comptent dans sa vie, Catherine (Léa Massari) dont il est séparé et qui lui a donné un fils, et Hélène (Romy Schneider), avec qui sa relation amoureuse est à un tournant…
Terence Trent D'Arby had a difficult 1990s, the nadir of which was probably the desperate mating call Supermodel Sandwich with Cheese from his 1995 album Vibrator. But he has started the new century with a clean slate, changing his name to Sananda Maitreya and launching his own label. The artful blend of soul, rock and funk is reassuringly familiar, though. D'Arby/ Maitreya still exercises a Prince-like control over songwriting, arrangement and production, rendering it a one-man show, but that's no bad thing with an artist of his ability. Drivin' Me Crazy packs enough lust into three funky minutes to satiate his most ardent fans (or "lightbeings", as he calls them), and the outstanding Suga Free pairs dark balladry with an operatic choir. Even the banjo-plinking O Divina comes good in the end, swelling into a Motownesque chorus. A snazzy comeback.
Since the group was founded 25 years ago, the career of Aka Moon has been punctuated by a myriad of original musical encounters. After their initiatory journey with the Aka Pygmies in 1992, an unappeased desire has always nourished the research of the three accomplices: the wish to share the knowledge, experience and secrets of other musicians from all backgrounds. Today, the necessity of the original trio is again expressed in NOW with the exceptional playing quality that has been acquired and refined over the course of numerous concerts. For although Aka Moon was undeniably born with a unique sound, the group has always made it evolve, absorbing, in particular, rhythms from the Orient, Africa or India.
Human Feel is a jazz quartet that consists of clarinet/tenor saxophone player Chris Speed, bass clarinet/alto saxophone player Andrew D'Angelo, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel, and drummer Jim Black. The group combines elements of free jazz, chamber music, and alternative rock and features extensive improvisation in their performances. Gary W. Kennedy noted their "tight-knit interaction and exploratory style."Human Feel was formed in 1987 when Speed, D'Angelo, and Black were studying music in Boston. Rosenwinkel joined in 1990. In the early 90s, the members relocated to New York City.
