JAM SESSION ANIMé PAR ALEX BELLEGARDE TRIO

Alex Bellegarde’s dynamic Tuesday jam session has become one of Montreal’s hippest weekly jazz events. The first set fires up with Bellegarde and his trio, playing host to a range of well known talents from the Montreal scene as well as musicians from out of town. The jam opens in the second set, to any jazz musician with the confidence to step up and play…there’s an unspoken rule though: “If you can’t keep up, you shouldn’t be on stage”. A great place to play and chill…. the jam continues on into the early hours!

RAZALAZ

Razalaz was born with one goal in mind: create a warm and accessible group based upon jazz music that is firmly rooted in groove traditions like funk. The five musicians, and more importantly close friends, who together give life to Razalaz have created a unique sound that can only be the product of their love of funk, hip-hop and jazz as well as Salazar's chilean roots. Despite their young age, the group has garnered a strong reputation for giving dynamic and energetic performances amongst the success they have found this year. One such performance was the Festi Jazz International de Rimouski where they won the Grand Prix Festi Jazz-LOJIQ for 2018. To round out the year, Razalaz performed at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal, the Juarez International Jazz Festival in Mexico, multiple cultural centres and outdoor events in and around Montreal and last but not least opened for Stanley Clarke during the Rimouski Festi Jazz's closing show.

MARIE-FATIMA RUDOLF TRIO

Toronto-born pianist Marie-Fatima Rudolf began piano lessons at the age of four. The daughter of two jazz musicians, she studied classical music for nearly fifteen years, thus developing good technical ability and a good ear. In her last year of high-school she performed Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue at the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts. She then moved to Montreal to begin a degree in Jazz Performance at McGill University, studying primarily with Jeff Johnston. Since her graduation in 2005, Marie-Fatima has been playing in various Montreal venues : Kemia, Quai des Brumes, Absinthe, Upstairs, Cafe Sarajevo, Bily Kun. She played at Sala Rossa with her trio as a part of the Suoni Music Festival, and was recently resident artist at the Upstairs. Marie-Fatima plays mainly with her trio, MM3, the preferred formation for her melodic compositions and colourful arrangements of jazz standards. Her inspirations vary from classical to hip-hop to soul, and the group’s music always reflects creativity, honesty, sensitivity and freshness.

JEAN-MICHEL PILC PIANO SOLO

CARL MAYOTTE - LANCEMENT DE DISQUE

Carl Mayotte's very first solo album, Fantosme, will be released on September 27th. This 10 pieces album is both a homage and an invocation to a decade that had significant influence on him: the 1970s.This album is filled with delightful solos, virtuosity, sensibility and joy. Assisted by several exceptional young musicians, Québec jazz legends such as Jean-Pierre Zannella or Luc Boivin and guided by a phenomenal mentor in Michel Cusson of UZEB, this first opus truly is dreams come true but most importantly the inaugural brick in the foundation of many projects in his young professional career. One of the highlight of this record is the fact that it was accomplished by musicians from both Québec City and Montréal in equal parts. Such collaborations are rare and it is one to listen to on repeat.
