Émile Parisien quartet

No jazz artist received more prominent acclaims in 2017, French “Victoires Du Jazz” and german "ECHO Jazz" awards, and few European jazz artist played as intensely on the big jazz festivals and classical concert halls.


Since 2004, these young musicians have amazed their audience with spirit and maturity. Their performances, in great festivals in France and in many clubs in Paris have been applauded by both audience and critics, delighted by the commitment and energy showed on stage.

With three albums in three years ("Belle Epoque" 2014 / "Spezial Snack" 2015 / "Sfumato" 2016), and an upcoming one for 2018 with his QUARTET, the 35-years-old saxophonist has made it in breathtaking tempo to the top of his instrument worldwide and made clear: Europe has a new jazz star.

In November 2018, EMILE PARISIEN QUARTET will be releasing a new album "Double Screening" on ACT label with pianist JULIEN TOUERY, drummer JULIEN LOUTELLIER , double-bass player IVAN GELUGNE.

" Originality is neither artificial nor demonstrative here, but emerges from the intense exploration of familiar musical trends; that of Coltrane and Wayne Shorter of course, but also Hector Berlioz, Igor Stravinsky and Arnold Schoenberg. If their rereading of this musical heritage is so fascinating, it has to do with the implication and the artistic rigour which nourishes the four musicians. Every note, every bar is played with the expressiveness of those urged to transmit their passion. These four musicians are one single voice, and though they all possess great individual skills, the audience is never disturbed from the emotional course of their collective compositions."
