Benoît Meynier plays tenor, alto and soprano saxophone. He was introduced to jazz through his family's record collection and later at the Jazz Club of Dunkerque, where he met many French and foreign musicians from a variety of backgrounds.
His musical studies led him to attend jazz class at the Lille Conservatory, the Association des Musiques Improvisées (A.M.I. in the south of France) as well as the CMDL and the Music Conservatory of Bobigny.
Over the course of his studies he met musicians such as André Jaume, Larry Schneider and Mark Giuliana. The broad vision of jazz he gained made him want to explore different aspects of this genre rather than limiting himself to just one.
Currently based in the suburbs of Paris, he teaches saxophone and performs in various groups such as the Penrose Trio which he co-founded (album released in September 2020 on DELUGE label), the Tactus Quintet and the saxophone quartet Yosh !.
