Label: Malasartes Musique
Damian Nisenson, saxophones and composition, Bernard Falaise, guitar, Jean Felix Mailloux, double-bass, Pierre Tanguay, drums
noZen is a jazz quartet based in Montreal, Qc. Their original instrumental music is at the crossroads of contemporary jazz, the melodic traditions of Jewish Eastern Europe and the rythmic influence of argentinian music, and this meeting of contrasting styles gives birth to a music at once spontaneous and deep. Tanguay, Falaise and Mailloux, three of the most active musicians on the jazz and musique actuelle scene in Quebec, joined the composer, multi-saxophonist and singer from Argentina Damian Nisenson, and together they offer us Nisenson's compositions, an invitation to travel between two worlds: the melodies inspired of a vanished past, enveloped in a very contemporary sound.
