With Maxim Saury disappears a great figure of jazz in France, inseparable from the great epoch of the Caveau de la Huchette in Paris. A wonderful clarinettist, he had created his own orchestra, New Orleans Sound, which he had made one of the best representatives of the New Orleans style around the world.

Today, he joined his friend Claude Luter and the legendary Louis Armstrong, with whom he formed a prestigious constellation, reference of all musicians and jazz lovers of today.

I express my support for his daughter and worthy heiress, drummer Julie Saury.
