Composer and tenor saxophonist Yannick Rieu is one of the finest musicians - in any genre of music - to have emerged from Québec, and one who’s also enjoyed an international career for many years, particularly in France.

DANIEL THOUIN INVITE CORAL EGAN

Daniel Thouin was 7 when he first sat behind the family organ. Ten years later, he was studying classical piano. Soon, he started flirting with the jazz scene. Then, he took an interest in electronica and pop music, collaborating with the likes of Mara Tremblay, Yann Perreau and Marie-Jo Thério. In 2002, Thouin assembled the Large Ensemble, an all-star local group mixing jazz and rock. Informed by Miles Davis' late sixties experiments, Thouin and friends (Yannick Rieu, Olivier Langevin...) used the band to flex their improvisational muscles.

Coral Egan has known critical and public acclaim since the beginning of her recording career. She has had a successful career in Quebec, Canada and beyond. Her first solo album, The Path of Least Resistance, was nominated for a Felix and a Juno in 2002. The three subsequent albums of almost exclusively original material, My Favorite Distraction (2004) (2 Felix awards) Magnify (2007) and The Year He Drove Me Crazy (2012), (nominations for both Felix and Juno awards).
