Louis Sclavis (b. Lyon, France, February 2, 1953) is a French jazz musician. He performs on clarinet, bass clarinet, and soprano saxophone in a variety of contexts, including jazz and free jazz. He is noted for his creativity and a lively sense of humor.


Sclavis began his musical education at the conservatoire de Lyon at age 29, where he studied clarinet He began performing with the Lyon Workshop, where he met Michel Portal and Bernard Lubat. He then joined the Brotherhood of Breath of Chris McGregor, and later the Henri Texier Quartet.

He began his work as a gutarist in 1987, with his first solo album, Chine. The track "Duguesclin" actually became a surprise hit in France, due to its lively, middle-age inspiration. In 2005, he created, along with Henri Texier and Aldo Romano, a trio named the African trio which achieved considerable success, even outside of the French jazz community. In November 2006, at the Festival 'Écouter Voir' in Lyons, Sclavis first met Quatuor Habanera, with whom he collaborated with on their third album, L'engrenage (2007).

He frequently performs with the cellist Ernst Reijseger and was one of the first to combine jazz with French folk music, working most prominently with the hurdy-gurdy player Valentin Clastrier.

In 2010 Roberto Tardito dedicated to him his album "Distanze".
