Renaud Louis-Servais Group


R.L.S.G. is the story of four musicians with a common passion for jazz, rock and fusion brought together to play Renaud Louis-Servais’s music. In 1997, Renaud set up the ‘Jade’ trio, with Laurent Quantin (drums) and François Munier (bass). Laurent Canas (a keyboard player who used to play with Michel Jonasz) joins the band in 1999, and the bass player is replaced by Eric Evangelista. A new quartet is born and starts playing concerts locally. Read more on Last.fm

Laurent Canas (a keyboard player who used to play with Michel Jonasz) joins the band in 1999, and the bass player is replaced by Eric Evangelista.

A new quartet is born and starts playing concerts locally. Laurent Quantin leaves the band in 2000 and is replaced by Alain Bidot-Naude, newly arrived from the Basque country with a first prize from the Agostini school in Bordeaux in his pocket. The quartet has found its name – Iluna – and plays a lot of concerts around Paris and at the Baiser Salé jazz bar (Paris). A four-track demo recorded in 2001 gets very good reviews.

Henri Dorina, bass player, joins the quartet in 2003. The band matures thanks to this experienced musician who has worked alongside Rido Bayonne, Moktar Samba and Paco Sery. Laurent Canas leaves the band in 2006 and is replaced by Guillaume Roussel. In 2008, the band reaches semi-final stages at the prestigious International Songwriting Competition with its title ‘Gimmick’, and again in 2009 with two titles ‘Thème d'Iluna’ and ‘Euria (Cycle de la pluie)’.

At that point, the band felt the need to record the different facets of its music and began digging through the music material composed over the past 10 years (almost literally!) to select part of it for the album. Instead of recording in a ‘conventional’ studio, the idea was to set up two fully compatible home studios, to work separately whilst being able to share recordings. Alain set up one studio for acoustics, drums and brass, and Renaud another to record the bass, guitar and keyboards. Recording could begin, with the help of Steve Prestage (Gino Vannelli, Gary Moore, Peter Gabriel...) who provided valuable sound recording advice...

Guillaume Roussel and Franck Guicherd – who joined the band in 2010 – shared keyboard recordings. Alessandro Nocco, met in 2008, travelled specially from Italy for 4 days to record saxophone parts and several months later… the debut album was finally ready. Read more on Last.fm.
