Doc Marcus contributes his skills in producing and songwriting, playing keyboards and flute.
The other members of the collective are : Doc Blade (Danilo Pala), an exceptionally gifted saxophone player; Miss Loulou, who quickens the Remedy with her voice; Flavio Boltro, former trumpet player for Michel Petrucciani & a really talented jazz musician; the overwhelming, eclectic guitarist Max Carletti; young drummer Mattia Barbieri; french vocalist Pascale Charreton & new entry, from Sri Lanka, Joy with her smooth voice.
Try to immagine the wild jazz of the 50s & 60s, Morricone, the “paparazzis” riding over the Croisette beach, Miles Davis providing the music for French Nouvelle Vague films, Velosolex & Vespa scooters.
But don’t forget what came after: the electronic sounds of the 80s & 90s, Fender Rodhes electric piano and drum machines. Be it chilled jazz or a cocktail smoothie you will always find the Universal Remedy so, so refreshing !
