Healing Unit: "Repeat Please!" Nouvel Album en 2018!!

Help us to produce the new creation of Healing Unit: 

"Repeat Please!"



This next record is a very special step for us, as it will be the recording of a 40min long piece untitled « repeat please ! ». 

We have played that new piece in public for more than one year, always improving and going further in the music.

The result is a generous music, full of joy and liberating energy! 


Now is the time to put it on record!!



Free the People, Free the Jazz!


By Fusing dreams and shouts, fury and mystery, Healing Unit takes root in the long history of Jazz, Blues, Free Jazz and Creative music.

The powerful music leaded by the pianist and percussionnist Paul wacrenier  is strongly influenced by the creations of musicians like Eric Dolphy, andrew Hill, Steve Lacy, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Don Cherry...

The band takes up this strong identity, melting new and ancient forms, writen materials and free improvisations, powerful melodies and burning swing.

Healing Unit offers both this generous music and its philosophy, defends a form of modernity beyond fashion and gives its respectful contribution to the field of creative music.


Members of the quintet are:


Paul Wacrenier (piano, vibaphone, composition)  ; Arnaud Sacase (saxophone)

Xavier Bornens (trompette); Marco Quaresimin (contrebasse) ;

Benoist Raffin (batterie)



Press Quotes:


«The Healing Unit are one of the more impressive jazz groups I’ve heard in recent memory. » 

« this music is as strong as anything from the more well known modern jazz orchestras of renown. (...) Extraordinary and unknown, how often does that happen??? »            DowtownMusicGallery, New York             

« … a strong personality that goes straight to the point but never forgets the beat or the dynamic only great technical skills can provide. So let's relish this album and its undeniable power, and let's see what the future holds – probably something thrilling. Now we know, we are ready for whatever comes next ! »                                                                                                                        JazzNews


« You will also find here, and with a voluptuous pleasure, what gives this pianist's music its spice : a sense of urgency, energy, freedom, generosity. His music is never recondite or self-absorbed ; it is grounded in a powerful beat and an always accurate melodic research. »                  Citizen Jazz                  


« Such a subtle composition, bursting with sincerity and originality, has given birth to those collective (utterly expressionist) and individual (boldly impressionist) expressions. »



“Healing Unit é um antidoto eficaz contra o narcoléptico jazz tradicionalista.”

Time Out Lisboa, Time Out Porto
