Q: At the time of Michel Petrucciani's death (January 6th, 1999),
Dreyfus Records were readying a release documenting Michel's
1997 solo tour of Europe. What ever became of that?

A: There were also plans for at least two more recordings
with the trio at the time of his passing, he was going to come
here to town to pre plan at least one of them. They were going
to do a studio orchestra recording, something like standards
or the like. The other may have been a big band rendering of
some of Michel's own tunes. Either way, it was a tragedy, the
cat passed away awfully early and more importantly had
finally found his own voice and really had come into his
own. He also finally had a sensitive trio to let him
express himself the way he wanted and needed to.
