Amaury Faye

Considered as one of the most promising pianists of his generation, Amaury Faye personifies the new wave of jazz made in France. The many awards he received in 2016 (including First Prize at national competition Jazz A Vienne/Rezzo Focal, France; Best Soloist/Instrumentalist Award at international competition Tremplin Jazz d’Avignon and Public’s Choice Award at international competition International Biberacher Jazzpreis, Germany) confirm his undeniable talent as a composer and improviser.

He is at his best when leading his trio, breathing new life into this format and its noble pedigree. Their first official album is announced for April 2017. Recorded in Switzerland in December 2016, it will include original songs and jazz standards.
