Philippe Saisse

Contemporary jazz keyboardist, composer and producer Philippe Saisse was born in Marseilles and raised in Paris; the son of a staff producer at CBS/Sony France, he studied piano, music theory and composition at the Paris National Conservatory, winning Boston's Berklee College of Music's prestigious Paul Winter Scholarship upon graduating in 1975. At Berklee, Saisse became the protege of vibraphonist Gary Burton, leading to a tenure playing behind Narada Michael Walden; he made his recorded debut on Al DiMeola's 1979 effort Splendido Hotel, and in addition to jazz also expanded into pop session work with appearances on David Bowie's Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), Chaka Khan's I Feel for You and the Rolling Stones' Dirty Work. Saisse also earned notice writing material for DiMeola, Al Jarreau (for whom he also co-produced the 1988 LP Heart's Horizon) and David Sanborn; he additionally served as the musical director on the Sanborn-hosted TV series Night Music. In 1988 Saisse signed to Windham Hill to release his solo debut, Valerian; it was seven years before the follow-up, Masques, appeared on Verve Forecast. Next Voyage followed in 1997, and two years later he resurfaced with Halfway Till Dawn. ~ Jason Ankeny

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works!

Beautiful!
In a way it reminds me of breezy, sexy Brazilian music. I can tell from Valerian that he loves Bach too.

I bought Halfway Till Dawn when it was first released. I have been soulfully impressed with Saisse ever since. Too bad has only recorded three albums even though he records with other artists. I have been wondering why it took him six years to record The Body and Soul Sessions?

Valerain album the best imho ... God Son Paris the best non-lounge trance/chill music of it's time. Still great.
