Jacques Helmus

From the age of five, he studied music theory, then the traditional clarinet in Paris followed by saxophone studies at the conservatory of Lyons (the Lyons school of French classical saxophone) where he achieved a gold medal.

Essentially self-taught in jazz and deeply influenced by classical and religious music, his musical education has been supplemented with great jazz musicians such as Bill Dobbins, Ramon Ricker at Eastman school and David Liebman in New York.

The professional career of Jacques Helmus is strewn with varied and enriching collaborations. He has played with Liane Foly, Francis Lalanne, Thierry Durbet (arrangeur), Nicolas Peyrac, Thierry Pastor, Michel Leeb.
