Musician

CODE Quartet

CODE Quartet is a collective quartet based out of Montreal. Formed four years ago by Christine Jensen on saxophones, Lex French on trumpet, Adrian Vedady on acoustic bass, and Jim Doxas on drums, the group came together with the equal goals of composing and improvising in a chordless-quartet setting. The primary motivation for the formation of the group has been to build on the freedom of expression pioneered by Ornette Coleman’s seminal group of the 1950s, with two horns interacting with acoustic bass and drums. They prioritize the idea that each voice within the collective is given equal weight, blurring the boundaries between lead and supporting voices, between frontline instruments and the rhythm section

Hugo Blouin

Born:

Double bassist and sound artist Hugo Blouin composes with the musicality of life. His work involves a love of both experimentation and tradition, and a fascination for the musicality of the human speech. His Vocal Jazz project “Charbonneau ou les valeurs à’ bonne place” won the 2019 Jazz Concert of the Year Award from the Quebec Music Council, and the 2018 Jazz Album of the Year Award at the Gala for Quebec’s Alternative Music. Dubbed one of "documentary jazz", the project was created from the records of the tragic, yet comical testimonies at the Quebec-famous Charbonneau enquiry commission on corruption in politics. Hugo Blouin plays with the Jonathan Turgeon Trio (2018 Stingray Award at the Montreal International Jazz Festtival), the Christine Tassan Quintet and the folk band MAZ (2017 Womex Official Selection)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
