"MICHEL ZACHA once took part to HAIR and SUPERSTAR; he signed on PATHE MARCONI and released 3 LP's ("La Nuit des cigales", "Le Vol d'Icare" and "Inutile", three albums set as a trilogy) between 1973 and 1977. He recorded with the finest French musicians in the jazz/songwriting/progressive music area, such as BERNARD LUBAT and JEAN-PIERRE ALARCEN." (quote found here on an earlier post of his third album)

Unbelievable French record by Michel Zacha(his 3rd). With a crew consisting of JP Alarcen,A. Ceccarelli,B. Lubat and CL. Engel amongst others,his music is an excellent mix of French pop/ballad folkish music combined with complex,strange, compositions.What else did you expect with such line up! Studio album released in 1972

When Jean Pierre ALARCEN plays the guitar, it's always worth listening to the music!
