Feeling a bit camera shy


Jacques Delaguerre comes from a musical family with professionals in the past four generations. He began performing in childhood with piano and voice, learning formal composition and arrangement in high school, subsequently studying classical guitar at the conservatory.

His original ballads typically contain enough story for a play or a movie. Many derive from real life, while others were composed in dreams and written down upon awakening.

His interpretations of popular songs leans not only on his classical training but also draws upon "bent tonality", utilizing scales outside the bounds of even temperament.

Jax currently performs and records with a number of talented and renowned session musicians, including nationally noted classical/electric violinist Lionel Young (http://www.lionelyoung.net/) who appears on Jax 2005 ISC entry.
