Tommy Halferty is one of the great figures of jazz in Ireland. This guitarist has played in his career with such diverse artists as Benny Golson, Martial Solal, Lee Konitz, Dave Liebman and John Abercrombie.

Jean Philippe Lavergne is dedicated to the organ since 1989. Self-taught, his extensive work of this instrument allowed him to perform with jazz musicians in France and abroad.

Their old meeting a quarter of a century resulted in the formation of the Irish trio French Connection and HLT with drummer Christophe Lavergne. This training product from Europe for many concerts and festivals, recently invited to Radio France for "Jazz on the spot" in May 2014.
