François Bourassa —now with ten albums of original music under his belt— has become an ambassador for Canada’s thriving jazz community at an international level. A paragon of consistency and evolution and inspired by a diversity of sources, his award-winning eponymous quartet has been a staple of Montreal’s artistic landscape for more than 25 years. Since its creation, the group has featured bassist Guy Boisvert, saxophonist André Leroux and more recently young drummer Guillaume Pilote. In 2023, the François Bourassa Quartet will release a live album recorded at the famous Studio Piccolo in Montreal.
