Adventurous and multitalented, trumpeter Jacques Kuba Séguin is a composer for groups of various formats: Odd Lot, Litania Projekt, and recently for a quintet for Migrations, his latest album, for which he received the 2020 Juno Award for Jazz Solo Album of the Year.

Séguin’s musical repertoire is by turns melodic, explosive and accessible. As a performer, he is definitely a showman, and he is recognized as one of the most brilliant trumpeters of his generation.

A winner of the 2012-13 Radio-Canada Revelations prize, Séguin is more and more present on the Quebec stage. In 2015, he was nominated for ADISQ awards in two categories, Best Arranger and Jazz Album of the Year, for L’élévation du point de chute and in 2016, for Litania Projekt with the Quatuor Bozzini in the same two categories. In 2015, he was nominated for an Opus Prize for Jazz Album of the Year for L’élévation du point de chute, and for Jazz and World Music Concert of the Year for his 2014 Montreal International Jazz Festival show, where Jacques presented an expanded version of his Litania Projekt, adding a string quartet to the ensemble.
