Current amplified music
Born in 1981, David Haudrechy began by practising the classical saxophone; his years of learning, rich in musical discoveries, opened up new horizons for him, through ensemble music in all its forms (big band, chamber music, etc.) and especially improvised music. This allowed him the chance to experience a series of important encounters, notably those of Claude Barthélémy, Frédéric Borey, Horace Parlan and especially Archie Shepp, whose influence was decisive. He also rubbed shoulders with the new generation of French Jazz: Julien Lourau and Magic Malik.
He deepened his learning with Philippe Lecoq at the CRR de Toulouse, where he studied jazz as well as classical and contemporary repertoires, alongside Emile Parisien. His various musical experiences then led him to share the stage with Magic Malik, Emmanuel Bex, Aldo Romano, François Théberge, Stéphane Guillaume, Joël Trolonge, Claude Égéa, Médéric Collignon, Thomas De Pourquery, Vincent Artaud, Daniel Humair… In 2006, he created the “David H Quartet” in order to assert his musical identity through an original musical language, influenced by modern jazz, rock, 20th century music…
He also participated in numerous groups: the saxophone quartet “Somesax”, “Zarca” (oriental jazz), the Philippe Laudet Jazz Odyssée, the Big Band 31 (with prestigious guests such as David Linx, Richard Galliano, Claude Égéa, Terez Moncalm…). He also collaborated on projects involving contemporary dance and various image projects, short films and documentaries. Holder of a DE in jazz, he runs the jazz class at the Conservatoire de Montauban; he also teaches at Music’Halle and isdaT.
In 2012, he created INITIATIVE H, a large format bringing together leading musicians from the new jazz scene, culminating in a first record Deus ex Machina, released in 2014 on the prestigious Neuklang label (Ping Machine, Andy Emler, etc.), which caused a sensation in Live (Jazz in Marciac, Toulouse d’été, La Défense Jazz) and with the critics (“A revelation!” Jazzmag, Citizen Jazz, JazzNews, France Musique…). He also pushes the boundaries of jazz with the great jazz musicians of this new generation: Thomas de Pourquery, Médéric Collignon, Emile Parisien, Vincent Artaud. At the same time, in 2015 he embarked on another adventure to explore new musical lands: the duo ENDLESS, alongside pianist Greg Aguilar.
