同时，选择这种类型的伴奏乐队意味着Stéphane Guillaume先生并不是想要一个小型的“大乐队”伴奏，而是想缔造一个由独奏家组成的非常独特的团体：Claude Egéa和 Pierre Drevet (小号), Denis Leloup和Phil Abraham (圆号)，François Bonhomme、Eric Karcher和Bastien Stil (大号)等，他们都热衷于演奏Stéphane Guillaume先生创作的原创音乐。
Stéphane Guillaume has won awards with the Jazz Academy:
The Django Reinhardt Prize 2009 as the best French artist of the year
The Best French Album Prize 2009 for "Windmills Chronicles"
Stéphane Guillaume has been playing for several years and after two remarkable albums ‘Soul Role’ and ‘Intra-Muros’, he is now pursuing his career with his friends Frédéric Favarel (guitar), Marc Buronfosse (string bass) et Antoine Banville (bt) a quartet that has acquired a remarkable sound through performing at concerts and playing with other musicians.
For his next project, he has chosen to be joined by his friends, who have been by his side throughout his early career. He will therefore be accompanied by a Brass Band composed of 7 instruments: 2 trumpets/bugles, 2 French horns, 2 trombones, and 1 tuba.
Whilst choosing this type of band, Stéphane Guillaume does not wish to be accompanied by a ‘mini big band’ and instead creates a very unusual group indeed, with exceptional soloists : Claude Egéa, Pierre Drevet (trumpet/bugle), Denis Leloup, Phil Abraham (French horn), François Bonhomme, Eric Karcher (cor), et Bastien Stil (tuba), all performing original music, entirely composed by Stéphane Guillaume.
After a period as a musican in residence at the Opera House in Lyon, his new album was recorded in June 2008 and released in October 2009. Stéphane Guillaume has been on tour since then, accompanied by the Brass Band or performing as a quartet.
