Olivier Franc Jazz Quintet to highlight the French Spring Festival

Olivier Franc (soprano saxophone), is the son of René Franc, clarinetist of the Pierre Braslavsky's band and of the André Réwéliotty's orchestra who played with Sidney Bechet.

Olivier Franc began his career in the 1970's. In 1979, he was awarded the Prix Sidney Bechet by the French Académie du Jazz. Well established in the classic jazz scene, the music critics called him Sidney Bechet’s best disciple and in 1997, he was rewarded with the Prix du Musicien Français from the Hot Club de France for his live CD Swing Folies. Olivier Franc offers a new and personal music while remaining faithful to the spirit and style of Sidney Bechet.
