Erik Truffaz

1960 -

Origin: Switzerland / France

Main instrument: Trumpet

Genres: Electro-jazz, Jazz

Soundscape explorer Erik Truffaz entered the public consciousness at the turn of the millennium with a repertoire grounded in jazz and branching off into rock, funk and even urban electronica. The French trumpeter has since earned a place among the new jazz elite, crafting modern, imaginative musical atmospheres out of a minimum of notes. Or, as described by Rolling Stone magazine, "a jazz with brawn, soul and plenty of wide, open space."
