Faïz Lamouri, a new star in the Jazz worldRTL

One of the many pleasures of listening to jazz is heard in the mystical connection between a musician and their instrument exampled in saxophonist Faïz Lamouri’s debut Wonders. The Moroccan born/French saxophonist plays with songbird quality—sumptuous tone and darting flight paths[…]” AllAboutJazz

A warm and unique sound, a dazzling virtuosity and a stunning sense of improvisation and composition.” France Musique

Faïz Lamouri’s compositions are original and combine the legacy of jazz with the surrealist poetry of his personal universe. His improvisations are conceived and structured as an architectural work.” FIP

[…]Last and not least as they say in New York, the young saxophonist Faiz Lamouri residing in the big apple, took his first steps on the scenes of his native country. A graduate of the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, […] the young prodigy successfully merged with the Danish group. He cleverly concocted two Oriental compositions, inspired by the ” makam ”, one of which is entitled ” A night in Jamaa el Fna ” (one night in Jamaa el Fna). A successful bet.” Le Soir Echos
