Yannick Rieu « Qui Qu’en Grogne »
For his new project « Generation Quartet », Yannick Rieu has teamed up with 3 of the most talented Canadian musicians of their generation. The group brings together the pianist Gentiane Michaud-Gagnon or Jonathan Cayer, the drummer Louis-Vincent Hamel and the bass player Guy Boisvert or Alex Le Blanc. As its name suggests, « Generation Quartet » allows for a dialogue between two generations of musicians who, over the years and through shared experiences, have developed a particular chemistry, a sound all their own. One foot set firmly in the jazz tradition, the other in innovation, this group is characterized by the great cohesiveness of its members, who explore, interact and exchange with one another. Besides unbridled spontaneity, collective energy is yet another strength of this quartet. Their music is imbued with poetry, mystery and beauty, evoking the human and spiritual experience in all its aspects.
