Franck Taschini was born in Monaco, began studies of classic saxophone, but very soon turned to jazz with Roger Grosjean. His first inspirations were Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins and Archie Shepp. It is at this period that he met the very young Thierry Chauvet-Peillex. At the beginning of the 90s he suspends his musical activities and even intends to stop them. Diverse come together bring him to start everything again at zero and for ten years he participated in numerous projects.
