Pianists and guitarists don't always mix well,"" Eric Legnini says. There can even be a kind of competition in the air between these two instrument worlds, these two mini orchestras on their own, these two popular technical tools that everyone has tasted at one time or another. However, it is far from being his case, says the Belgian: on his side, relations are rather good - even if, he confesses in a loud laugh, that he is only a ""poor guitarist"" who can only play ""three poor Brazilian chords"". But it must be said that the native of Huy (near Liege) grew up with a father who was a fan of Django Reinhardt: ""there were always some that resonated in the house"", he recalls. And then, along the way, Eric Legnini met some of the best specimens of the genus. Whether with the pillar of the Plat Pays Philip Catherine or the legend Toots Thielemans, harmonica player of course, but also skillful six-stringed player. With Six Strings Under, the pianist accomplice of Joe Lovano, Claude Nougaro, Stefano Di Battista, Aka Moon, the Belmondo brothers or Ibrahim Maalouf certainly decides to make a kind of declaration of love for this instrument that has rocked him all his life. But not only that: in addition to a nod to the famous series Six Feet Under, of which he is a fan, this album marks a return to acoustic and instrumental formats, two areas that he had left for several years to focus on more electric and full of vocal guests: the trilogy The Vox - Sing Twice - Waxx Up with Hugh Coltman, Mamani Keïta, Yael Naïm or Krystle Warren.
