Veteran pianist and composer Philippe Saisse returns with a acoustic jazz CD of cover songs for Dave Koz's Rendezvous Entertainment.

PhilippeSaisse.jpgDave Koz�s Rendezvous Entertainment has announced the latest signing to its record label: keyboardist, composer and producer Philippe Saisse. Saisse, a French native who now lives near New York City, recently released a CD in Japan called The Body and Soul Sessions that was recorded at his Valerian Studios. That CD will now be repackaged and re-released by Rendezvous on April 18.

The CD is a trio recording that also features David Finck on acoustic bass and Scooter Warner on drums and percussion. The CD�s music is all cover songs, including the title track by Johnny Green, �Do It Again� by Steely Dan, �September� by Earth, Wind & Fire, �Fire and Rain� by James Taylor, �Lady Madonna� by the Beatles and �We�re All Alone� by Boz Scaggs.

If you can't wait - and this CD is definitely worth getting - Saisse is also selling the Japanese version now on his Web site.

Saisse has released six previous solo CDs, including the subliminal, ahead-of-its-time chill/downtempo Halfway Til Dawn in 1999 on the GRP record label.
