Biography

Pianist Jacques Chanier is one of the leading lights of the Boston jazz scene, with a firm yet lyrical style that recalls players such as Kenny Werner and Alan Pasqua. Born and raised in Paris, Chanier relocated to the U.S. to study at Berklee College of Music. From there he springboarded into a jazz career, performing with local musicians in many Boston venues. In 1995 he began an association with the Henry Cook Band, recording two albums with the group on the Accurate label. Kite Flight, Chanier's 2000 debut as a leader, is a polished, all-original trio disc featuring bassist Thomson Kneeland and drummer Brooke Sofferman.
