With a 17-year career, over one million albums sold, a Juno and 3 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards among his prestigious prizes, Jesse Cook ranks among the foremost virtuosi of acoustic guitar. His repertoire is rooted in an unimpeachably varied stylistic palette, enriched by a musical lifetime of experiences and influences. His versatility and boundless curiosity generate emphatic, comprehensive experiences in fusion and genre crossover, as the massive success of his preceding album, The Rumba Foundation, most eloquently confirms. A great friend of this Festival, where he's performed since 1996, Jesse Cook was particularly impressive during our 25th edition in 2004. The artist who just released a new album, The Blue Guitar Sessions, returns to showcase his formidable technical mastery and the incredible musical intuition that bonds him with his remarkable musicians. Don't miss this essential concert!
