He stays there for five years, playing with Steve Potts, Oliver Johnson, Jean Jaques Avenel, Georges Brown, Jean Yves Colson, Jef Sicard… then he returned to Nice where he continued his musical activities with Barney Wilen, Bibi Rovere, Jack Sewing… With Jo Kaiat it is about travelling but travelling in depth, it is every time to try to make the tour of something
