"Nomination for best JAZZ album of the year!" - Adisq
In the ’70s, Michel joined the formidable Bill Evans trio with drummer Philly Joe Jones. He has taught at McGill University, and in recent years has continued to perform, compose feature film scores and collaborate in some double bass experiments with both Henri Texier and Charlie Haden.
Recipient of both the Order of Canada Award and the prestigious Oscar Peterson Award for excellence in Canadian Jazz, Donato remains committed to teaching and developing young musical talents.
Born in Romania, accordionist Marin Nasturica plays everything from classical to gypsy music to Romanian and Russian folk music and, of course, jazz.
Jon Geary has become one of North America’s finest seven-string guitar players and has studied with John Abercrombie and played with the likes of Bucky Pizzarelli.
With a mixture of European folk sounds and jazz, this album is full of the easiest listening, yet delightfully entertaining music!
The XtractHD process relies mainly on the fact that a computer is not a musical instrument… By getting rid of most computer processes and external hash, Fidelio gets one closer to the real recording session, restoring stereo spread, spatial positioning, preserving hall characteristics and the timbre of each instrument.
