Francois Carrier

CARRIER knows how to surround himself, find the most compatible partners, and maintain a recorded presence all over the world. His rich, deep playing that blends lyricism with boldness and a sense of surpassing one’s self has earned him a place in the Eight Annual International Critic’s Poll of El Intruso 2015 and in the DownBeat’s 2013 Best Alto Sax Players List.
