Let's imagine a young singer/pianist/keyboard player in his twenties really influenced by the LA Sound of the 80s and Jazz Fusion. Let's imagine a French artist with the George BENSON and Al JARREAU mood (when both were produced by Jay GRAYDON)... It is typically the Didier MAKAGA West Coast music... 2 solo albums at the beginning of the 80s (this one is the most famous!). Since then, Didier has worked a studio musician, singer-songwriter and arranger. In the early 90s, he has released in France an album in the World Music vein.
