Classical soprano Julie Mossay, jazz saxophonist Steve Houben, the trio of pianist Nathalie Loriers and the strings of the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie are the surprise ingredients of this amazing project.
They revisit a selection of great American songs, in new and refined arrangements especially written by Michel Herr, who imagined a dialog between these amazing soloists and a string section.

From Gershwin to Cole Porter, from Duke Ellington to Joni Mitchell, all these songs are sometimes viewed as the last golden age of melody.
Jazz musicians have a tradition of using them as a springboard and a canvas for their improvisations.

"An American Songbook" features strong individuals, who build bridges between musical cultures, at the crossroads of popular American songs, jazz and classical music.
