Biographies title

  • Born in 1986, Benoit Berthe discovers jazz music at 11, when he decides to integrate the jazz initiation class at Marciac's High School. Following this beautiful experience, he decides to further his knowledge by entering the DEM JAZZ course at the ENM of Mont-de-Marsan and graduates with honours in 2005. He then integrates the Didier Lockwood's Centre des Musiques in 2006. It is during that year that he became acquainted with the musicians who form his group: Benoit Berthe Back Quartet.
    He works with and learns from musicians such as Stéphane Guillaume, Pierrick Pedron, Sylvain Beuf, André Vileger, Benoit Sourisse, Olivier Temime, Remi Vignolo, Manuel Marchès and many other great musicians. He graduates with honours in June 2008. Finalist of the "Trophy of Sunside Jazz Club" in 2008 in Paris, finalist of the Tremplin "REZZO" in 2009, he shared the stage of "Jazz à Foix" in 2009 with the saxophonist Olivier Temime at the Young French Jazz Talents' Night. On December 15 2010, he is nominated as "Jazz Revelation 2010" by Alex Dutihl for his first album: Benoit Berthe Back Quartet: "First Pages" on the France Musique's radio show, "Open Jazz".
    He is also the winner of the European Jazz Contest's final in Rome in July 2011. He is currently composing and exercising on stage his passion for music, and started collaborating with the great saxophonist Rosario Giuliani in September 2012, which gave birth to his second album, Benoit Berthe Back Quartet: 'Travel's Appeal'.

    Benoit Berthe
  • Born in 1985, the pianist and composer Jean Kapsa joins the Valence's Jazz Action School in 2002, while pursuing a scientific higher education. He turns definitively to music in 2005. After a meeting in trio with Christophe Wallemme who invites him in the amphitheater of the Opera of Lyon, he follows a course at the Didier Lockwood's Centre des Musiques until 2008, with Benoit Sourisse, Pierre de Bethmann, Olivier Hutman, Emmanuel Bex and Manuel Rocheman as teachers. He accompanies Magnus Lindgren (Djangos d'Or 2008) and Bob Mintzer (Jazz in Gradignan).
    In 2006 he forms the SPHERE Trio with which he is awarded the 1st prize of the Tremplin Jazz d'Ile-de-France, chaired by Antoine Hervé and the 2nd prize at the Trophies of Sunside Jazz Club in Paris. The record "Greenland Road" (2009) marks the beginning of a series of concerts in festivals such as Jazz à Vienne, Jazz au Fil de l'Oise, Péristyle de l'Opera de Lyon, Respire Jazz Festival... Edouard Ferlet brings him his support to record the record "Parhélie" (Revelation! Jazz Magazine) which reflects the evolution of the trio.
    The album is released in April 2011 on the label Mélisse Music. He wins, with the FESTEN quartet, the Tremplin Jazz de Lagny chaired by Stéphane Huchard and the Golden Jazz Trophy chaired by Martial Solal. Noticed and solicitated by Louis and François Moutin, he joins the Moutin Reunion Quartet for a concert, beside Rick Margitza. The first album "Festen" is released in 2010 on the label Odduara Musics. The critics are unanimous and enthusiastic.

    Jean Kapsa
  • Stemming from a family of musicians, Zacharie Abraham was born in 1987. He started singing and tap-dancing from at the age of 4 in "Les P'tits Loups du Jazz" (recording of four records on the label "Enfance et Musique"). He begins the classic cello at 5 and his passion for jazz music leads him to study the double bass at 12. He was awarded the classic double bass prize from the CNSM of Paris. He plays at the same time with various jazz bands and has recorded an album with Thomas and David Enhco: Enhco ad co: "Esquisse". Of Caribbean descent, he is also interested in world music.

  • Born in 1989 in Belgium, Nicolas Charlier starts to learn drums at the age of 9 with a private tutor. In 1999, he moves to France and joins Didier Lockwood's Centre des Musiques where he meets the Enhco Brothers and then Benoit Berthe. He integrates the "Little Jazz Band" with whom he plays in many concert halls. Thanks to his musician father, he participates in many jazz internships and shows a very early interest for this music. He begins the double bass at 12 and studies both jazz and classical. Avid to deepen his harmonic skills, he decides to begin the piano at 15. Drummer in bands going from the trio to the big band, he regularly plays in various places in France and abroad.
