Jean-Christophe Béney

1969 -

Origin: France

Main instrument: Saxophone

Genre: Jazz

Born and raised in Paris, Jean-Christophe Béney studied the saxophone at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris in 1993. While still a student, Béney honed his skills by dividing his professional time between performing as a sideman with musicians such as Laurent Coq or Antoine Hervé, and as leader of his own quartet, featuring a wide array of musicians throughout the years. Since 1998, the saxophonist produced and released five acclaimed solo albums: Tenor Joke (1998), Cassiopée (2002), Polychromy (2004), Pop Up (2007) and The Link (2010). In 2006, Béney moved to Montréal, where he teaches and continues to perform with his quartet, featuring members John Roney (piano), Fraser Hollins (double bass) and Martin Auguste (drums).
