Winner of the Félix at l'ADISQ for the 2015 jazz album of the year, which honoured Quantum, their third CD, and the 2013-14 Opus prize for jazz album of the year with their preceding release, TRANSIT, the Emie R Roussel Trio is now an unstoppable force in the current Canadian jazz scene, having experienced a dizzying ascent since 2010.
With Emie R Roussel on piano (Révélation Radio-Canada Jazz 2014-2015), Nicolas Bédard on bass and Dominic Cloutier on drums, the trio delivers creative and captivating jazz with passion and undeniable chemistry.
Having had the privilege to present their music in eleven countries across four continents in less than two years, the Trio is back – inspired, and with a whole new level of complicity and mutual understanding – with their new project, Intersections.
The hard-won musical cohesion of the group’s three members puts a particular spotlight on groove and melody via a sound at times more acoustic, at others more electric. These precious shared moments, and each member's creativity, meet at the crossroads of their respective paths, the intersections of their musical odysseys.
