Benoît SAUVÉ, a self taught musician, has been practising the recorder since he was eight. He first takes a keen interest in Rock and Celtic music.

When he is a teenager, he discovers Jazz and is seized by a compulsive desire to study it.

Considered as one of the very rare recorder players in Jazz, he can be heard in the biggest festivals and theatres. Lately, he was heard with Jean Jacques MILTEAU at the "Olympia" (a Famous theatre in Paris) or with the "Nouvelles Polyphonies Corses" at "Le Bataclan" (another Famous theatre in Paris).

He combines virtuosity, musicality, the sense of improvisation and the incredible ability to tackle the most different sorts of music. He is regularly invited in recording studios and he takes part in the recording of lots of CDs for various artists (Catherine Lara ,Graal ,Georgian Legend ..).

His own technique and art bring the recorder in a new dimension and induces us to reconsider his place in the present musical scene.



"I am astouned with the virtuosity and musicality of Benoît SAUVÉ on this modest instrument (and I know what I am talking about).
It's a stimulating encouragement for all players!"
