This classy looking Limited Edition of ‘Sphère’ comes as a Hardcover Media-Book with 30 Pages of mainly pictures with two of introductory text from Antoine, plus the disc has 3 Extra Tracks more than on the standard Digi-Pak edition.

‘Sphère’ is the top-notch 4th album of instrumental Prog Jazz Fusion music from bass player and composer Antoine Fafard’s and it features major contributions from renowned players: Gary Husband (drums / lead synthesizer / piano) and Jerry De Villiers Jr (lead guitar).
The album follows: ‘Ad Perpetuum’, a collection that was well received by fans and critics on its release in 2014, described by DownBeat Magazine as "a powerful example of jazz-fusion at its hardest."

‘Sphère’ collects 9 new original pieces (plus 3 Bonus cuts on this Media-Book edition) featuring a blend of foot-tapping grooves, original chord progressions and creative soundscapes. The music offers plenty of space for De Villiers Jr to shine with his rich and warm guitar tone and highly melodic approach. The album also gives a platform for virtuoso multi-instrumentalist Gary Husband to display his intensity and musicality in his highly creative approach to both drums and keyboards.

Fafard gives his signature to all the music and provides the bass frequencies and occasional solos on the electric bass. De Villiers Jr features as co-composer on three tracks.
