Laurent Payfert | Back
Bass

Born in 1970, Laurent Payfert's first instrument was the trumpet, and his training at the Conservatoire in Metz was in classical music. In his 20s, however, he took up the bass, and began to work in jazz circles, although still active in the classical world; the bredth of his interests also see him collaborating with comedians, dancers and visual artists.

As a bass player he has worked with such notables as Noël Akchoté, Steve Lacy and Peter Kowald - the last named being one of his bass influences alongside Ron Carter and Barre Phillips.
