Philippe SELLAM : La Bio

After multiple experiences in groups like NoJazz or Andy Emler Megaoctet, Philippe Sellam turns to a more pared-down formula the trio, accompanied by inspired musicians Alfio Origlio on keyboards and Yoann Schmidt on drums. They just recorded a new album together untitled "Magic box ", where one can discover not only the beautiful encounters of sounds, but as well its intense music-making where relays are operated smoothly by always keeping a catching energy.

Three notes of this all-terrain saxophoniste is sufficient to identify him. In the abundance of brilliant French musicians Philippe SELLAM is a rare voice and one-of-a-kind. His lyricism and poetry, as well as his his breathtaking technique makes him a desired companion of the most flamboyant orchestras, such as French National Jazz Orchestra, Michel Portal; he has also performed with Michel Petrucciani, Gil Evans, Bernard Purdie, Charles Aznavour and many others. His trio produces a contemporary jazz, illustrated with beautiful melodies alternating with inspired improvisations.
