I want to help

Debellefontaine Fabien

Every kind of Saxophones, Sousaphone, Tuba, Clarinet, Flute ... Here is my story.

Sent at 8 eight years to the neighbourhood music school, at saxophone due to a lack of staff in the city orchestra (i wanted to play the trumpet, by the way...), and after trying to spend a « classic » life, becoming Chemical & Physical Measurements Superior Technician (yes, ma'am), i realize that i definitely prefer blow horns.

Actually, Saxophone is not so bad !

After few years learning with Nicolas Dary, André Villéger, Philippe Macé, Tony Russo, Pierre Bertrand, Nicolas Folmer and Emyl Spanii (Paris 9th), i created a big band named L'Oreille Cassée, for wich i wrote all the pieces, and i recorded a CD album with Inama, co-led jazz sextet rewarded at Saint-Germain-des-Prés and La Défense 2007 Festivals.

”Leur prestation est marquée par un mélange de précision, d'exactitude, de sens du détail, et de lyrisme, de spontanéité, de lâché prise, qu'incarnent l'élégance de Rafael Koerner, l'énergie de Julien Soro, la malice de Fabien Debellefontaine et la présence de Stéphane Caracci.” Franck Bergerot, JazzMagazine
