NEW SINGLE | UNFINISHED BUSINESS

Available on all digital plateforms on
Septembre 24th 2021

For this new project, Benjamin Deschamps takes a more electric and powerful turn. Nicolas Ferron on electric guitar joins the quintet. Deschamps is inspired by the works of musicians who are fond of this fiery jazz such as Donny McCaslin and Ben Wendel. The sextet promises an album that is introspective, robust, more mature, but just as ingenious as its predecessors. To be released in the fall of 2021!

BIOGRAPHY

∼ saxophonist and composer ∼

It was through his classical music background that Benjamin Deschamps discovered jazz to finally make it his own. Although he cumulates artistic mediums (he is a flutist, clarinetist and arranger), it is his talents as a saxophonist and composer that have put him in the spotlight. His gregarious spirit led him to collaborate with several ensembles such as the Rachel Therrien Quintet, Odd Lot (Jacques Kuba Séguin), the Joe Sullivan Big Band, the Orchestre national de jazz de Montréal and JazzLab Orchestra (Effendi) before diving headfirst into his own projects. From trio to sextet, he plays with variable ensemble sizes to give the most fitting touch to each work.

 Benjamin is recognized by his peers in the Canadian jazz scene, but also by the cultural industry. He was named “Révélation jazz Radio-Canada” in 2017-2018, and won the TD Grand Prize at the Festival international de Jazz de Montréal in 2019.+
