Guitar greats Philip Catherine and Paulo Morello got to know and appreciate each other in 2010 jamming together at the Burghausen Jazz Festival. In 2017 they teamed up with bassist Sven Faller to start a real collaboration. The chemistry of this trio turned out to be just right and lead to a number of well-received concerts. After successfully continuing their tour in 2018 they decided it was time to document their efforts in a recording. They named it after one of their favorite compositions by European jazz pioneer Django Reinhardt: Manoir de mes Rêves. A lot of the groups repertoire is based on material originating from Paris in the 50s and 60s - compositions, that Philip Catherine was fond of when he was a young man like Les Amoureux des Bancs Publics by Georges Brassens. Pas Encore was composed by Henri Salvador and is based on lyrics by Boris Vian. Salvador, who briefly played in Django Reinhardts group was a major force in French music. Reinhardt himself is represented not only by the title track but also by his composition Swing 39 and the jazz standards Insensiblement and Ill See You in my Dreams that rank among his signature tunes. Jardin dHiver is by French jazz organ great Eddy Louiss. Also from the 60s is the famous Bossa Nova Recado, that proves to be a perfect vehicle for the trios strengths. Newer material include two songs associated with Belgian singer Maurane: Les Uns contre les Autres (written by France Galls husband Michel Berger) which Philip played after her recent death. Enfant des Etoiles was written for Maurane by Philips Belgian friend Evert Verhees. One of the highlights of the album is piano player Nicola Andrioli`s composition To Philip.
