He developed a long collaboration with bassist Jean-Louis Rassinfosse, whith whom he recorded a couple of duo albums, featuring a.o. some of his compositions.
He now also proposes a quartet with the addition of Fabrice Alleman (saxes, clarinets) and percussionist Xavier Desandre-Navarre. This quartet has recorded its first album in 2010.
