Monday, January 27, 2020

Here we go again for 2020!

And what a start to the year! My record "Equilibrium", which came out on ODDsound records, was awarded the Prix Opus 2019 for Jazz record of the year during the Opus Prize gala presented by the Conseil Quebecois de la Musique.

Congratulation to all the nomminees and special thanks to my friends and collegues Jerome Beaulieu, Alain Bourgeois and Olivier Babaz for their devotion and musicality
