Safety Squad

Jean-Marc Foussat

Né Jean-Marc Foussat en 1955 à Oran, c’est tout d'abord avec la guitare, au milieu des années 70 que je crée plusieurs groupes aussi expérimentaux qu'éphémères pour peu à peu lui préférer le synthétiseur & le papier réglé, prenant autant de plaisir à trafiquer la bande magnétique, en solitaire.

En 81, je termine "Abattage", mon premier disque solo qui sera finalement édité en Mars 83.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
