Parc X Trio

Taking their name from Montreal’s culturally diverse Parc Extension neighbourhood, Parc X Trio’s music is just about as diverse as the place they call home. Combining rock, world music, hip hop, and drum & bass in to their instrumental jazz sound, keyboardist Gabriel Vinuela-Pelletier, bassist Alex Lefaivre, and drummer Alain Bourgeois explore some very interesting musical territory.

The group groove together exceptionally well, employing intricate rhythmic patterns and complex harmonic language as a basis for their compositions and improvisations. Not unlike their Toronto brethren BADBADNOTGOOD, Park X Trio are pushing the modern electric piano trio sound to new and interesting places.

On Saturday, September 26th, Parc X Trio will perform at the Masonic Temple, beginning at 10pm.

I mastered 2 new Frédéric Alarie albums out now

I mastered and did the graphic design for two new Frédéric Alarie albums out now.

The first one is called Life and is available right here. It’s in a more “straight ahead” kind of vibe. It’s focused on different drummer-less duos and trios .

The second one is called Undertaking and is much more experimental with quite a bit of looping and effects. You can pick that up here.

It was quite an honor to get to work with Fred and to finally get to share this great music.
