It’s an all-too-rare visit from this excellent trumpeter. After disappearing for a few years to battle his personal demons, he’s now rediscovered his aplomb and the joy of playing; and I look forward with immense pleasure to hearing the artist who so amazed me in the Spectrum during his very first Festival visit in 1997.

When I caught her last December, I was captivated by her utterly unique and intoxicating voice—to the point that I proclaimed I had not been that surprised by an artist in ages. It’s a long way from her native New Zealand, but I think our audience will be as floored by her voice as Hollie will be to witness the incredible warmth the FIJM audience habitually reserves for its favourite new discoveries. It’s win-win!

Leading lights on the French dub scene, the members of High Tone take great pleasure in getting inside your mind and body, transforming you into a life-sized Bobblehead. It’s impossible not to fall for this powerhouse, minimalist groove. Do they get la job done? Oui m’sieur!

We are all thrilled to witness this immensely talented artist arrive here for the very first time. A genre-flouting lyrical and melancholy piano style, jazzy and jaunty, married to a voice with a singular timbre that hits you right in the heart. Nobody remains indifferent to Mr. Clementine!

At first, it was going to be a solo show (as we had witnessed it), but iconoclastic singer Joy added a drummer when her incredible success demanded that she play much larger stages. It was a judicious choice, which we’ll all experience in this, her North American premiere! An absolutely mind-blowing groove.

This Montreal group, presented at the Festival for the first time, charmed us with the sound and energy of their repertoire. A wonderful local discovery, they once again ably illustrate how this city and its artists don’t have to envy anyone when it comes to doing things just right. Thanks to Berbanya, we feel like the distance between Algeria and Quebec gets smaller and smaller with every concert.

Tigran, as I’m repeating for the umpteenth time, is one of the artists who transcend the boundaries of fusion in his approach to jazz, perfectly blending his diverse influences. He attains a happy medium between virtuosity and pedagogy, consistently demonstrating the range of his knowledge and savoir-faire. He presents 3 different concerts, which I will have the immense pleasure of attending.

Attention: this one will get crazy. I can personally attest that for two nights running, this Zimbabwe group had everyone dancing like mad, and had a profound effect on me. For a number of years, diplomatic tensions made it difficult to present groups from this African country in concert. But it was worth the wait! Given their resolutely urban and danceable repertoire, this Harare group could just as easily come from Brooklyn, London or Paris. Get ready for a hard-hitting groovefest!

It’s an onstage exploration, with the addition of a projectionist whose images envelop the soundtrack. Jérôme is one of the rising young stars most successfully driving himself and his music to a place in the sun. His music invigorates the jazz scene, and he’s developing the standards of quality required to propel him into the ranks of the elite artists.

Ooh la la—now here’s a very special guest indeed! After headlining a number of major European festivals, it was time Shantel and his band made the leap over to Canada. And here he is, ready to turn the Place des Festivals into one gigantic dancefloor. Having witnessed the crowd response to previous concerts featuring sounds from the same musical family (Emir Kusturica, Goran Bregovic, etc.), this show will be ferocious. Believe me, your joints will be howling the next day from a dance overdose!
