Francois Bourassa

”Creative…mystical…exotic…bluesy…joyful.” --Jazz Times (USA)

“Without a doubt one of Canada's finest bands.” --Toronto Star (Canada)

Composer and pianist Francois Bourassa leads one of Canada's most active recording and touring jazz ensembles, which recently celebrated its 25th birthday. A trio for 15 years, Francois Bourassa, Guy Boisvert (on bass) and Yves Boisvert (on drums) were joined in 1998 by the celebrated saxman Andre Leroux. Upon Yves's subsequent departure, drummer Greg Ritchie (Halifax/New York) joined the group for all tours and new recordings. In the last album, West African percussionist Aboulaye Kone joined the group thus bringing a “world” flavour to Francois' compositions.
