When he discovered the music of Django Reinhardt at an early age, a whole new world opened up to him and, from then on, he started focusing on the specific jazz manouche style. In the 1970s he could be found in several trios and duos and he recorded his first album 'Si tu savais' in 1982. He founded his own record label Djaz Records in 1988. This label released many records of artists of the French swing and jazz manouche scene in the 1990s alongside his own projects.
The project 'Django - A tribute to Django Reinhardt - Live at De Werf' was realised on Djaz Records as well as on our label. In 2009 Patrick was struck by a serious illness and sadly passed away on 21 September 2012.
