“Jazz Album of the Year” at l’ADISQ

In physics, a Quantum is the smallest indivisible unit. It also provides a perfect illustration of the trio: an ensemble composed of three individuals, with similarities as well as differences, joining together to create a unique and indivisible core. Nine pieces and four interludes act like atoms, simple individual elements uniting and combining with each other to form a whole, a complete experience. Drawing more than ever upon the creativity and cohesion of all three members, this very personal opus is marked both by the group’s singular acoustic sound and a more pronounced “groove” colour. In fact, while recording our previous album TRANSIT, we discovered that each of us had always been deeply interested in R&B music. It was therefore perfectly natural and logical for us to incorporate R&B colour into our artistic process. In this environment of sharing and exchange, Quantum was born, an album where the search for sounds and textures links our beginnings to our present, while paving a path towards the future.
