Michael Franks , Yellowjackets


Michael Franks / Yellowjackets

The most famous American jazz fusion group is coming to town! Yellowjackets is a tour de force that combines African, South-American and Oriental influences in a progressive mantle of jazz as well as rock. "As a singer, his finesse and redolence make if futile to resist this subtle way of making jazz.Irresistible. An excellent show." It's with these words that La Presse described Michael Franks' last Montreal concert in 1986. Alter having missed last year's Festival, the singer and composer from San Diego returns fo Montreal, a city he knows well for having studied at the Université de Montréal between 1968 and 1970. His modern and accessible repertoire draws from several sources. Blue Pacific for example, his most recent album, was inspired by the life of Paul Gaugin and offers a hybrid mix of jazz, urban rock, world beat and California cool. The perfect opportunity to let yourself go!
