MarieVeronique Bourque

Born:

Marie-Véronique (MV) Bourque, an extremely talented artist from Saskatchewan, is not afraid to think and act outside the box. Her original songs and unique interpretations of jazz standards (by flute and voice) pair beautifully with her hard-to-define music genre. A nominee for the 2021 Trille Or and the 2021 Saskatchewan Music Awards, Marie-Véronique is also one of the winners of the 2021 Jazz Flute Big Band competition organized by the National Flute Association. In April 2021, Marie-Véronique launched a second jazz flute album Entre Québec & Saskatchewan, which rose to 8th position on the national jazz charts and earned the title of 5th album of the year 2021 in Saskatchewan. In 2020, Marie-Véronique showcases at Contact Ouest and is one of the artists highlighted during BreakWest. In 2019, MV was brought to Oxford (UK) for a recording session on Will Cox’s debut album, “A Darkling Shore”

Classical Jazz Quartet: The Complete Recordings

Read "The Complete Recordings" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian


The names of Johann Sebastian Bach, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Sergei Rachmaninoff do not necessarily conjure images and sounds of jazz in one's mind, that is until one has listened to recordings by the Classical Jazz Quartet.

Classical Jazz Quartet: Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker"

Read "Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker"" reviewed by Jim Santella


Like the Modern Jazz Quartet, the foursome on this new release folds visions of great classical music into a mainstream jazz setting. Tchaikovsky's 1892 ballet has always provided special holiday vibes for the holidays. This year, Bob Belden's musical arrangements have put a new spin on it; still leaving a lot of space for veteran improvisation. ...
