Pierrick Pédron

Breton Pierrick Pédron makes his Festival debut, preceded by a chorus of acclaim. A devotee of bop, open to rock and steeped in musical harmony, this saxophonist is considered one of the most brilliant young tenors on the European jazz scene. With several solid albums already to his credit, he recently released Cheerleaders, an ambitious orchestral jazz opus performed with a brass band and produced by Ludovic Bource, composer of the music for Oscar winner The Artist. In three words: substantive, eclectic, brilliant.

Michel Bonin
from Vancouver will attend this concert:

The official program notes at the 33rd edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal describe Pierrick Pédron as 'a devotee of bop, open to rock and steeped in musical harmony' who just committed 'an ambitious orchestral jazz opus performed with a brass band'. Influenced by first having been a dance band player back in Brittany where he grew up, Pédron switched to jazz early on. Unlike his French contemporaries who enjoyed the booming European scene at the turn of the century, he had chosen New York but eventually joined his folks back and has since become associated with the popular jazz bands that record live material from Paris. Prolific since his first album issued in 2004, he is best at ease playing as leader in a saxophone quartet. But one could not find who (if any) is to accompany this other rising star of the French jazz scene. Pierrick Pédron is one of half a dozen French musicians invited at the FIJM in 2012 who continue to build a career at home in Europe.
