The Jazzlab Orchestra is a Montreal-based ensemble of 8 musicians that presents creative music since 2003 – the Orchestra celebrates this year its fifteenth anniversary. This collective of artistic collaboration has produced many projects over the years, but always working with top players of the Montreal jazz scene. After 6 albums and more than 250 concerts around the world, the Jazzlab now presents Quintessence, the music of composer and pianist Félix Stüssi. On the menu: a refined musical experience exploring the essence of jazz itself.
“15 years ago, double bassist and Effendi Records founder Alain Bédard created the Jazzlab Orchestra. To highlight this feat pianist Félix Stüssi wrote nine compositions that capture the essence of the band’s path. A staple of the Montreal and Quebec jazz scene, standing out over the years with their compositions, the Jazzlab lays down some pretty invigorating jazz that recalls Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in the 50s-60s as well as modernism, and all created in good taste. Alain Bédard and his accomplices, as their name states, are a laboratory of ideas, and go the whole nine yards. Quintessence features adventurous compositions and great musicians and is a pleasure to listen to.”
