Noël Balen was born in the twentieth century. Logically, he will die in the next century. His wife wants it to be as late as possible.
He grew up with two certainties: what to do later - music and books - and he does not want to do later - the rest. His musical journey led him first in the shadow of recording studios as bassist and bassist. It breaks both arms tennis, permanently waives the sport and became music critic in Jazz Hot.
A few years later, he hears again the call of the studio and returns this time as a director and producer. There experiencing successes and did not want to remember the failures. This is an optimistic boy. Noël Balen published in joy "Music soothes the murders," his first book. To date, more than forty novels, essays and biographies followed, without regret or remorse. He speaks of stormy nights, heroic jazzmen, softness wine, heavenly gypsies, lonely and strayed from viewpoints of shivering crowds and bright destinies. He plans one day soon, to talk a little about him.
