His rich, deep playing that blends lyricism with boldness and a sense of surpassing one's self has earned him the 13th spot on DownBeat's 2013 Best Alto Sax Players List. Alto and soprano saxophonist, composer and improviser François Carrier was awarded the Juno Award for "Best Contemporary Jazz Album" in March 2001 for his Compassion album on Naxos Jazz.
