Introductions : The Quartet

 

 

French musicians Henry Grillot, Arthur Henn and Baptiste de Chabaneix understood that Jad Salameh’s music was a meeting place of two worlds, the crossroad between tradition and modernity. Through their own respective musical “voices”, they were able to give life to Jad’s vision: a world of unique voices, all working together toward a single hamonious entity.

 

Jad Salameh / Piano
Henry Grillot / Guitar

Since the Lebanese-Canadian pianist founded the quartet, his vibrant creativity and endearing compositions provided the group with a thrilling project. Together they have performed in several cities and have recorded, with renowned singer Jennifer Grout, Jad’s debut album “Lucky Are The Ones With Voices”.

French guitarist Henry Grillot has a nick for seeing the world from his unique perspective which translates into a particular approach to his instrument. Gifted with a spontaneous flow, he has a talent for turning complex compositions into lyrical melodies, bringing to the quartet a warm touch.

Arthur Henn / Contrebass

This mammoth of an instrument is but a simple extension of this French Musician’s body. It is but a vessel for his musicality and remarkable virtuosity. A central figure in the quartet, Arthur Henn acts at the same time as the solid ground beneath your feet and the dormant volcano choosing a fulminating awakening.

Baptiste de Chabaneix / Drums

French musician Baptiste de Chabaneix sees the drum set as an endless palette of sounds and dynamics. He is a humble colorist, in search of a universal answer to synergy. His minute attention to details and meticulous touch puts the music of the quartet in a constant state of exploration.
