"Benoît Delbecq was born in St Germain en Laye (F), June 6, 1966. He lives in Bondy, near Paris. A dreamer and an adventurer in music, pianist/composer/producer Benoît Delbecq has been one of the activists of Hask (1992-2004) and Astrolab (1994-1999), two Paris-based cutting-edge jazz/improv collectives that have contributed to significantly revitalize the french creative music scene around the club Instants Chavirés in Montreuil/Paris. His music and projects include works for theater, dance, litterature, visual arts and motion pictures, that are being regularly invited by major festivals worldwide. He has released about 35 records as a leader or co-leader among a discography of more than a hundred discs.

Anchored in both jazz history as well as in aesthetical stakes of today's new musics, Delbecq's works are world-widely acclaimed since the early nineties. He is a renown specialist for a personal and polymetric approach of "prepared piano", and has also an regular activity in the electronic department. His works are experimenting a blend of improvisation and composition in which he reveals a rich pallet of sounds, enlightened by stratas of multiple momentums, articulations and seemingly floating harmonies. Inspired by alternative urban musical experiments and electronic music adventures, he also improvises a personal approach of drum'n bass and ambient.

Benoît was awarded 'Prix jeunes affiches de la SACEM' in 1995 with group KARTET, prix de la Villa Médicis Hors-les-murs 2001 for his first solo piano recording " Nu-Turn " (Songlines, 2003), was awarded with the fellowship of Civitella Fundation (New York, 2009), was awarded in 2010 a double Grand Prix International du Disque (Académie Charles Cros, the French Grammy Awards), and his trio CD "The Sixth Jump " (Songlines) was listed in the New York Times top ten jazz/pop records of 2010. His works for the Fred Hersch/Benoît Delbecq FUN HOUSE double trio (premiered and recorded in May 2012, to be released FEB 2013) have recently received the French Ministère de la Culture " Commande d'Etat " funding. Recently he was commissioned by JAZZTOPAD Festival in Wroclaw (Poland) for a new piece for the Lutoslawski String Quartet and two improvisers (Miles Perkin on bass and himself on piano)."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Louisiana born double bassist and composer, John Hébert, is committed to exploring deeper his own Cajun roots. If there were traces of it in his previous trio album, Spiritual Lover, and in his first recording as leader, Byzantine Monkey that identity search is now ever more present. But this highly in demand and sought after bassist didn't make the easiest step: "Floodstage" isn't a world jazz recording. On this latest outing the creole references come with subtlety and are mixed with the contributions of Hébert's partners: French pianist Benoît Delbecq and drummer Gerald Cleaver, both also widely recognized virtuosos of their respective instruments.

A dreamer and an adventurer, specializing in a very unique approach that provides multi-layered grooves on prepared piano, Delbecq is either diving into the traditions of jazz, a less known side of his many skills, or adding unexpected electronic textures to it, giving a mysterious and unique vision to the compositions. Something similar can be said about Cleaver: he defines and keeps tempos with excellent mastery and wonders us with a tapestry of complex rhythms. Hébert is always there, providing the pillars of support, even when the axis moves to the side and the center of gravity is obscured. The result is challenging music, with earth, and all the sky above."-Clean Feed
