Alain PIERRE has always liked acoustic guitars, especially nylon strings, but also the twelve-string guitar (aka “folk” guitar). In his personal approach of jazz, he uses classical guitar techniques on the twelve steel strings, which is definitely one of the key features of his style.
No wonder that Alain is particularly fond of the luxuriant acoustic jazz of the 70’s, best represented, among others, by the ECM label. His compositions and playing arise from these influences.
He leads his own projects with his compositions mostly. He founded his own label “Spinach Pie Records” (www.spinachpierecords.com)
