Montreal: Montreal pianist, composer, improviser and arranger Marianne Trudel will release her new recording with Trifolia titled ‘Le Refuge’ on July 2, 2013. Trifolia is the result of a rich collaboration between three accomplished musicians: Marianne Trudel (piano, accordion, wurlitzer, voice, composition), Étienne Lafrance (double-bass, composition) and Patrick Graham (percussion) - each with a different palette of colors from which to sketch: Jazz meets world music, meets classical… and the Montreal trio blurs and then obliterates the boundaries while never straying from the heartfelt. « Foisonnant, articulé, généreux, up-lifting. Prodigieux! »Richard Desjardins, (Quebec).
‘Le Refuge’ is Marianne’s fifth compact disc recording. The album was recorded in Montreal at Studio Pierre Marchand and was produced by Marianne Trudel. “Le Refuge is distributed by Select Distribution.
Marianne Trudel is an energetic and passionate artist whose style cross-cuts a wide swath of musical interests.
