2013 was the opportunity for Jean Luc to perform with 3 different formats, his regular band, symphony orchestras and a new quartet with his daughter Clara on vocals and keyboards, a concept that was requested and initiated by the management of Palais du Facteur Cheval in France last June as a tribute to the sculptor who created this amazing palace in memory of his daughter. Jean Luc was also the first artist to receive an award from "Excellence Française" in the jazz category, this association selects candidates among the most successful French citizen in different fields such as science, medicine, the military etc. and for the first time added artistic categories such as classical music, opera, pop, theater, design and more. Those of you who can read French will find more details at www.excellencefrancaise.com. Happy 2014 to everyone !!!
