LIBÉRATION / François Richard Quartet


The group already released two CD's, Coincidence (DSM 1998) and Ad Infinitum (Effendi 2005), which made the unanimity of the criticism in North America. Since 1997, the Quartet has made concert venues at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, at the Radio Canada radio broadcast, in the " Maisons de la Culture " around Montreal, also in GESU concert hall, Upstairs Jazz Club as well as tours around Quebec.


The instrumentation of this formation introducing a brand new personal that include flute, piano, double bass and drums is slightly different from the regular ensembles in the jazz world. In this third opus with a quartet formation, the auditor will have the opportunity to hear of the new "repertoire" of original music stuffed with funk, Latin and swing rhythms, showing an approach of the jazz flute signed by François Richard.
