Over the course of the past decade, harmonica player Gregoire Maret has emerged as a unique and compelling new voice across a wide spectrum of the modern jazz world. And he has re-defined the role of the harmonica, finding fresh pathways through a remarkable variety of styles. The extensive list of heavy- hitters who have enlisted him for their own projects is unparalleled: Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Cassandra Wilson, and Marcus Miller are some of his most prominent employers. Maret‘s guest appearances in the studio and on stage expand that list to even more jaw-dropping proportions: Prince, Sting, Elton John, Jimmy Scott, Dianne Reeves, Toots Thielemans, Richard Bona, Terri Lyne Carrington, Tito Puente, Kurt Elling, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Charlie Hunter, Youssn’Dour, Me’Shell Ndegeocello, Pete Seeger, David Sanborn and George Benson have all made use of Maret's unmatched palette of color. He has established a reputation at the absolute top of the game and was awarded a Grammy.
