This spring, jazz band Misc (formerly known as Trio Jérôme Beaulieu, and named Radio-Canada’s Breakthrough Jazz artist for 2013-2014) will release their self-titled album on March 18th, 2016 via Bonsound. Don’t miss their launch show at the Sala Rossa on March 22nd, 2016. Misc is available for pre-order via Bandcamp and iTunes. Listen and share the album sampler.
Misc holds a place in the Jazz scene because of the vital role that improvisation occupies in their music. However, this does not stop them from drawing on influences from pop and rock genres.This clearly mark a step towards a new generation of jazz musicians for whom catchy, strong melodies and rhythms expand musical boundaries while rooting the music in the present. Therefore this album, much like the live performances of Misc, strives to create an energetic and active dialogue between the listener and the music.
