Chantale Gagné

Born:

A native of Quebec, Canada, jazz pianist Chantale Gagné began studying music at the age of 8. At 15, the piano becomes Chantale’s passion.

In 2005, Chantale met famous pianist Kenny Barron and although she studied with him for a short period of time, this encounter proved to be so inspiring to Chantale both as a pianist and composer that she realized jazz had become her deepest calling

Chantale Gagné: The Left Side Of The Moon

Read "The Left Side Of The Moon" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Read "The Left Side Of The Moon" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Chantale Gagne: Silent Strength

I came upon Chantale Gagne's Silent Strength completely by accident. The French-Canadian jazz pianist recorded this album in 2007, but I only discovered it last weekend while searching to see who had recorded Bill Evans' Peri's Scope.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
