Philosopher and avid listener of jazz, classical, and contemporary music.
I am a Ph.D. student in philosophy, doing research in theoretical ethics. I am now
living in Montréal, and in the past ten years I lived in Québec City and in Toronto.
My first encounter with jazz was during a live performance, in my hometown, of a
trio led by Michel Donato, when I was about 13 or 14 years old. I have always been
a very curious listener, and I had the chance to grow up in a house full of CDs. I
started listening seriously to jazz and classical music as a first-year undergraduate
student in Québec City, and I started writing my thoughts on music a few years ago
on my personal blog.
My Jazz Story
I was first exposed to jazz when I was young, going through my mother's partner's music collection.
The best show I ever attended was by Phronesis (in Montreal, 2015).
My advice to new listeners is to be patient.
- John Coltrane - Impressions
- Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
- Vijay Iyer Trio - Break Stuff
