Thomas Enhco, born in Paris, France in 1988, began playing the violin at the age of 3 and the piano at the age of 6. With a classical music and jazz training in both instruments, he quickly began composing his on works shortly after. At the age of 9, famous French violinist, Didier Lockwood, invited Thomas to join him for the Antibes Juan-les- Pins Jazz Festival. At 12 years old, Thomas made the decision to quit school to study classical piano with Gisèle Magnan and in 2005, he entered the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP) in Jazz and Improvisation classes.

His first album Esquisse (sponsored by Peter Erskine) was released in 2006 (Ames/Harmonia Mundi which then garnered him the support or the Fonds d’Action SACEM. In 2008 he was discovered by one of the most important producers of jazz in Japan, Mr. Itoh “88” Yasohachi, and produced his 2nd album Someday My Prince Will Come which was released in Japan (Blue in Green/Universal) in 2009, and in France (Ames/Harmonia Mundi) in 2010. In 2010, he composed his first film score (“Aux Arts, Citoyens !”) and went on tour through France and Japan with his trio. That same year, he won two major French awards: the 3rd Prize at the 2010 Martial Solal International Jazz Piano Competition, and the Django d’Or 2010 “New Talent”.

In 2011, Thomas toured through France, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Japan, Russia, Spain, New Caledonia, Madagascar, and Algeria with his trio, in solo and in duo with classical percussionist Vassilena Serafimova. He also collaborated with the famous French dancer, Pietragalla, to create the show Les Diables Verts, and he composed the original film score for the movie Les Cinq Parties du Monde.
In January 2012, Thomas Enhco received the FIPA d’Or 2012 for Best Original Soundtrack for the film and in the same month, he recorded in New York with Jack DeJohnette (drummer for Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett…), and John Patitucci (bass player for Chick Corea and Wayne Shorter…) with production by Mr. 88 for Japan.

Thomas has now produced and recorded his new trio album, Fireflies, featuring the Canadian, Chris Jennings (bass), and the Belgian, Nicolas Charlier (drums). This new opus will be released on October 15th, 2012 (Label Bleu/Sphinx) in France. We can already reveal that it conveys the strong personal direction distinctive in Thomas Enhco’s composition: entirely original music, a powerful lyricism combined with subtle narrative and depth – on the frontier between jazz and classical music.
