About Grand Baton

Jean-Christophe Maillard, a.k.a. Le Grand Baton is a composer, guitarist, pianist, singer/songwriter and arranger.

He is a native of Pointe-à-Pître, Guadeloupe, French Caribbean, which really comes out in the awesome sounds of ‘Le Grand Baton’, one of Jean-Christophes’ projects. His professional carreer started in Paris, France, at the age of 19 when he went on tour and recorded with Grammy Award-winning artist Angélique Kidjo.

For the past 20 years, he has been touring, producing, arranging, acting as musical director and recording with all the great names in world music and world jazz. Grammy wining artists such as Angelique Kidjo, Daniel Mille, Toure Kunda (Bill Laswell, Carlos Santana) have had Maillard collaborating with the world's finest musicians. A flamenco fusion project "Jaleo" led to recording and touring with Louis Winsberg (Sixun, John Mc Laughlin, Gino Vanelli) and most recently with Richard Bona since for the past several years.
