Heralded as the Révélation Radio-Canada Jazz for 2011-12, as well as a recipient of two Opus Awards for Best Jazz Album in 2011 (New Angle) and 2018 (Equilibrium), Samuel Blais has become a pillar of the jazz scene in Montreal. Composer, multi-instrumentalist and saxophone professor at Joliette CEGEP since 2013, he has had the opportunity to perform all around the world. The music from his new album, Equilibrium, is remarkable in its maturity, lyricism and intensity. His fully developed compositions showcase the fervour of his improvisations. The album made the top 5 Best Canadian Jazz Albums, according to the Ottawa Citizen. We can’t wait to see him on stage once again to kick off this special series right before Christmas!
