Do you know Jacques de Lignières ? If not yet, then do not hesitate to discover the man and his music! Sensitive, warm, open to the surrounding world and curious about multiple wealth he receives. Tireless phonic traveler who does not hesitate as soon as he has the opportunity there to meet new people and to measure to unusual sounds and to enrich again and again his musical vocabulary and his expressive pallet.
Saxophonist (tenor, soprano, alto) in the multiple influences (among whom we notice Art Pepper and Thelonious Monk)
:
Jacques de Lignières is at the initiative of JdL Quartet .

With successively Claudine François (P), Stéphane Benveniste (Cb) and Bertrand Perrin (Dms), then Olivier Léger (P), Xavier Barloy (Cb), Serge Lamboley (Dms) until the current formation, with occasionally Ichiro Onoe or Eddie Allen (Dms), this band played regularly in concerts in the clubs of the Paris region or elsewhere and in the Hexagone jazz festivals. For several years now, after an impromptu meeting in a festival, Jacques regularly collaborates with the pianist Bobby Few*, mythical figure of free jazz. This new step in an already full course has turned out to be particularly fertile. Just to be convinced, listen to Jacques & Bobby compositions on their latest recording "Engrenage" with Hervé Czak** on double-bass and Jean-Pascal Molina*** on drums.

*Bobby Few : "his last live performances with such artists as Frank Wright, Alan Silva, Noah Howard, or Ricky Ford, have allowed us to see how wide the spectrum of this American pianist is! Tatum to Monk, the former right-hand man of Steve Lacy has the gift of ubiquity and the appropriateness of the Lords."

**Hervé Czak : He shared scenes with among artists such as Michel Graillier, Maajun, Mario Stantchev, mounted the festival "Jazz au fil de l'Oise", initiated the French-Polish quintet "East&West" with trumpet Piotr Wojtasik and played as sideman with, in particular, guitarist Doug Raney and saxophonist Walt Weiskopf.
***Jean-Pascal Molina : He develops a modern style by referring to the history of jazz, his organic style is illustrated with musicians such as John Tchicai and Yochk'o Seffer.
