About Renaud:
From the moment he held a double bass in his hands for the first time at age sixteen in Paris, the future of the instrument was destined to be changed. In a lightning bolt of insight, Renaud Garcia-Fons saw possibilities in this instrument to explore all the musics that interested him – classical, jazz, Persian, Indian, Mediterranean, South American, forms from the world over. Driven by new ideas and the talent to translate them into compositions, he had to reinvent the way it could be played. The result is an utterly new sound – an amalgam of double bass, cello, violin, guitar, lute, oud, and more – that exceeds any conventional idea of playing the double bass.

A typical press comment about Renaud:
“I am not particularly a fan of performance spectacles, but here we were facing a huge phenomenon. One even wondered who could surpass the bassist on the entire jazz planet! Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen? He is no longer of this world. Of course, today it's raining virtuoso bassists from everywhere. But soloists of this level? Innovators so impressive? As far as I know, Renaud Garcia-Fons strikes me as the most impressive in today's era. Do you have any other suggestions? I will accept the ballots.”
Alain Brunet, La Presse (Montréal)
