On "celebrating The Dark Side Of The Moon," Nguyên Lê blends various musical colors together. Modern jazz, big band sound, world music, and the necessary rock attitude come together to create a colorful, multifaceted perspective on the original with attention to detail.

Nguyên Lê
"No one plays guitar like he does," wrote the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about Nguyên Lê, the very first exclusive artist signed by ACT. Born in 1959 in Paris to Vietnamese parents, he is one of the most versatile and distinctive guitarists, with influences ranging far beyond jazz, including Asian music, modern jazz, fusion, and classic rock.
