Day two of the very popular Montreal Jazz Festival, as will be his habit throughout the festivities, our photographer and jazz lover Pierre Langlois was there. Take a look back at its eclectic route!

Wajdi Riahi Trio

It was a beautiful moment that we spent with the trio of Wajdi Riahi, virtuoso, but not too much, the trio served us moments, sometimes rhythmic, sometimes lyrical. Inhabited by oriental nuances, their music remains jazz and unique. The drummer, Pierre Hurty, is very present, dynamic and precise while the double bassist, Basile Rahola, is full of finesse. Riahi is poetic and sensitive, throughout the pieces we feel a nostalgia in the choice of his notes, he has among other things served us an Arabic song revealing a more vulnerable and fragile part of his artistic personality. Great performance filled with smiles and complicity.

Adam O’Farrill’s Stranger Days

Musicians in the prime of their lives, the members of Adam O’Farrill’s quartet, Stranger Days, served up an electrifying fusion of jazz tradition and modern innovation. The leader’s music is resonant with the rich heritage of his family history, but also with a desire to transcend it. A stimulating and exhilarating performance.

Drive Many

A very short stop at Studio TD which allowed us to see that Monet’s poetry has its effect on the audience. We are not talking here about poetry filled with rhyme and code, but rather a version that seduces with the emotional honesty and the power it conveys. Aja Monet adheres to this concept and addresses subjects like childhood, social injustice and the strength of love with rare gentleness and a precise eye.
