Eric St-Laurent

Playing the compositions of guitarist, Eric St-Laurent, and joined by the unique and highly virtuosic rhythm section of Jordan O'Connor (double bass) and Michel DeQuevedo (percussion), the trio creates joy, excitement - and a few other emotions that simply haven't been named yet. At the heart of it; Afro-Cuban rhythms combined with jazz openness and blues sensibilities that give way to lyrical melodies and infectious grooves and riffs.

Their live show leads the audience on a musical foray as rich and diverse as the the city they live in. The arrangements are transparent, the mood is intimate and the songs, uplifting. Inspired by world rhythms and world travel, the trio revels in the new interpretations unveiled at each performance through the magic of improvisation.

Awards

Winner of the SOCAN award for best original composition at the Montréal Jazz Festival and The Best Band Award at the Vienne (France) Jazz Festival. St-Laurent has been featured on over 30 recordings, has produced albums, written scores for short films and theatre, and toured extensively in Europe and Canada.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
