Jazzlab

The Jazzlab Orchestra is a Montreal-based ensemble of 8 musicians that presents creative music since 2003 - the Orchestra celebrates this year its fifteenth anniversary. This collective of artistic collaboration has produced many projects over the years, but always working with top players of the Montreal jazz scene. After 6 albums and more than 250 concerts around the world, the Jazzlab now presents Quintessence, the music of composer and pianist Félix Stüssi. On the menu: a refined musical experience exploring the essence of jazz itself. Be it on a bicycle or behind the keys, Felix Stussi loves adventure and fresh wind. Since his move from Switzerland to Canada, Stussi has turned his back on journalism, and jazz piano and composition are now his main focus. He returns regularly to Europe to play with well-known ensembles. Recently, the region Glarus Nord (Switzerland) honored Stussi with their culture prize.
