His reputation as organist-singer (two assets not often found together) has spread over Europe. Jean d’Albi frequently performs in Germany, where he played a French-created organ in Wurtzen for its first appearance.
He has met with a triumphal welcome in Italy when he first appeared at the International Organ Festival of Roma in 1997, and has been on tour in Italy for six years now.
He also plays in duets with trumpet player Gilles Mercier or cello player Catherine de Vencai (both of them being solists at the Radio France Philarmonique Orchestra).
He starts his musical studies at the age of 7 working on a piano and a violin.
Playing with the keyboards of cathedral Sainte Cecile in Albi, France (his native town) at the age of 9, he discovers the organ and develops a passion for this instrument.
He goes on with his studies in Paris, where he follows the classes of three famous teachers : André Marchal, Gaston Litaize and Jean Langlais.
Gifted with a voice he studies singing with Jeanine Collard, Gregorian singing with Dom Bossard (choirmaster in the Abbaye of Ligugé) and will specialize later on with Negro-Spiritual, which he starts to appreciate by listening to Mahalia Jackson and Paul Robesson.
At the age of 22, and with the valuable advice of Eugene Bigot he becomes a conductor and leads several ensembles, including the Marseilles Symphonique Orchestra.
