Emie R Roussel Trio Emie R Roussel Trio

Winner of the Stingray Rising Stars Award at the 2018 TD Halifax Jazz festival, of l’ADISQ’s 2015 Félix for jazz album of the year for their 3rd album Quantum, and jazz album of the year at the 2013-14 Prix Opus for their preceding release, Transit, the Emie R Roussel Trio has experienced a dizzying ascent since 2010, and is now a power to be reckoned with on the Canadian jazz scene. 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 also garnered a special mention from the TD Grand Jazz Award jury at the 34th Montreal Jazz Fest and having won the Audience Choice Award at the 2013 Festi Jazz International de Rimouski, the group has not only been doing more and more concerts in Canada, but has begun making its mark around the world, earning praise in eleven countries and on four continents. During a 2014 tour of Australia and New Zealand, they performed at the Melbourne Women's International Jazz Festival and in the cities of Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland and Wellington. In 2015, the trio went on a European tour that took them to Italy, Estonia and France; they also presented Quantum in the United States and in Mexico. In the fall of 2015, the Emie R Roussel Trio was back in Europe at the invitation of two festivals, the Éclats d'Émail in Limoges and the Jazzy Colors in Paris

Claudia Beaumont, Ici Musique (Radio-Canada), Canada “In our opinion, Intersections is the result of an expert combination of past and present influences, demonstrating surprising maturity in the writing, elegant as anyone could wish for, while preserving the fiery aura that emanates from their ambitious youth.”

Raul da Gama, The Whole Note, Toronto, Canada « Music on Intersections is patently expansive and at times a veritable masterclass in how to build assiduous climaxes, how to intelligently scale one’s dynamics and how to balance the music’s massive textures in sonorously judicious proportions

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
