Maurin Auxemery
from Montréal will attend this concert:

I might have chosen François Bourassa, Bachar Mar-Khalifé, Keith Jarrett, Randy Weston, Brad Mehldau, Tigran, Shai Maestro, Jérôme Beaulieu or Monty Alexander, but I think that Kris Bowers is the name that most captivates me in this 2014 piano edition. We don’t know him very well, there are precious few videos floating around on the Internet, and there were no albums or EPs until Heroes + Misfits, released on Concord in March 2014. It’s pure pleasure to hear his well-produced “popified” approach, enriched by completely integrated electronica, rock and R&B influences. This could be one if the very best picks of this year’s Festival.
