Alban Darche

Primary Instrument: Saxophone

Born: April 19, 1974    

Album after album, through an ever increasing number of line-ups and experiences, Alban Darche has been building a highly original, free-spirited and coherent body of work. He's the ingenious leader of the AD3 trio (with bassist Frédéric Chiffoleau and drummer Emmanuel Birault) and of Gros Cube (formerly Le Cube), a 15-strong big band featuring the finest jazz talents in the country, with several albums to its name, the latest dating from 2007 and featuring vocalist Katerine. In addition to his personal projects, Alban Darche is also a member of Jean-Louis Pommier's Qüntêt and Fred Pallem's Sacre du Tympan, and has worked with, amongst others, Gabor Gado, Tim Berne, Marc Ducret, Julien Lourau, Kenny Wheeler, Driss El Maloumi, Baptiste Trotignon and André Minvielle...
