The La Buissonne recording studios have seen hundreds of albums emerge since they began their activity twenty-five years ago. Each album has been the occasion of intense moments and marvellous encounters. I've already recorded some ten sessions with Bill Carrothers, but this particular one was really special. At the end of a previous session, we'd finished up round the piano with Bill to recall our favourite tunes. During the discussion, he hummed a version of 'Once in a While' with a few arpeggios in his own style to accompany it ? here was another Bill, one I didn't know till then, a singer in the purest tradition, with a vocal timbre close to Chet's. I immediately grabbed one of our good old microphones and put it in front of him; what came next are the moments of deep emotion presented here on this CD. Alternating piano solos with vocal pieces, Bill gave us "his" songs using harmonies he had distilled or altered in his own way. He too was transformed - in an altered state, where he could only be reached or touched by the love generated by the songs and their contents. We were no longer in the studio, nor were we in a normal time frame either - we were all in a state of absolute grace, love and peace.
