As a leader of his own group, Artie released “Parallels” in 2005, “Currently Experiencing” in 2013, and most recently “Discern” in 2015.

The Rémi Bolduc Jazz Ensemble with special guest pianist François Bourassa are proud to present a brand new production, Tribute to Dave Brubeck, performing the music of Brubeck’s celebrated band, also recognized thanks to the excellent saxophonist Paul Desmond. “Take Five,” “Blue Rondo a la Turk” and several other compositions from the album Time Out are included in the program – one of the most famous and best-selling albums in the history of jazz.
Featuring music from his latest CD.

In tribute to the late great Ornette Coleman, Inside Out will be playing two tribute concerts at Musikkii Cafe. These shows will be all Ornette’s music and largely focus on the earlier albums such as Tomorrow Is The Question and The Shape of Jazz To Come.
Inside Out is the brainchild of Benji Perosin (trumpet) and Jonathan Stewart (saxophones), with Paul Clifford (bass) and Rich Bannard (drums). The chord-less format of the band allows the horns much freedom in interpreting harmony and form, and there is much group improvisation.
