has spent most of his career leading his own group in France, but twice has made particularly notable recordings, both on organ. He had sung as a member of the Double Six
(1961-1963), played piano with Johnny Griffin
in the mid-'60s, and worked at times with Kenny Clarke
and Jean-Luc Ponty
. But he is best-known for recording Dynasty with Stan Getz
(1971) and for his duet set with pianist Michel Petrucciani
(1994) on Dreyfus.
