Band Presentation

No Codes Band Picture

Following the release of his last record Demi-Nuit in 2017, Benjamin – who was named Révélation Radio-Canada Jazz 2017-2018 – puts together the music collective No Codes. The quartet, made up of Deschamps (alto sax), Frank Lozano (tenor sax), Sébastien Pellerin (bass) and Louis-Vincent Hamel (drums), takes its inspiration freely from the standards of the great American song book to recreate new compositions.

Borrowing from the rhythms and the colours from the Andes, Motown or even Free Jazz, No Codes offers a musical research inspired from the Jazz tradition without actually copying it in its form. The band, without any instrumental or harmonic support, bets on its interaction, its listening and its spontaneity. The record No Codes is the product of a collective work of research and a desire to explore and to push the boundaries of music.
