St. Germain - Pont Des Arts

Gt. Germain is the stage name for Frenchman, Ludovic Navarre. Navarre began recording the 90's under many alias: Subsystem, Modus Vivendi, Deepside. He first recorded as St. Germain with the 1996 release, Boulevard. His music has been described as a mix between house and jazz.

Pont Des Arts is off his second release, Tourist. Tourist, released on Blue Note Records, is an excellent album that expands more into jazz than Boulevard by bringing in many jazz musicians to play over his house grooves. Trumpter, Pascal Ohse, sax and flute player, Edouard Labor, and guitarist Ernest Ranglin lend their touches to make Tourist an album that has been on constant rotation on my MP3 player.
