Ambrose Akinmusire with Tigran

In this 3rd evening of his Invitation series run, trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire “crosses swords” with pianist Tigran Hamasyan, discovered during a remarkable solo performance at the Festival in 2010 and a favourite ever since. These two young talents are renowned for their impressive improvisational sensibilities and insane virtuosity, and deliver a dazzling and daring jazz, defying all known labels. The future of jazz? A page of it will certainly be written tonight.

Marc-André Sarault (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
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.
