SuperNova 4 – the eponymous first opus from this quartet of Quebec jazz stars was acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic. Here’s the follow-up, just as original and surprising.

“UNICUM!” cried the Hungarian Emperor Joseph II in 1790, when his physician Dr. Zwack gave him a taste of his bitter herbal liqueur as a remedy for imperial intestinal cramps. The album’s title track was composed in 2019 at the Budapest Music Center during a tour with the Jazzlab Orchestra. Félix Stüssi was surprised to discover a grand piano in his bedroom. The piece is also a tribute to the late Hungarian-born Montreal musician, composer and big band leader Vic Vogel.

Félix Stüssi dedicates Blues turquoises to the memory of his friend and radio host Colette Coco Schryburt, who passed away in June 2023.

Dear listeners, be warned: UNICUM was recorded live without a safety net. You will therefore witness explosions of spontaneity and unreserved improvisation, which could alter your chaste and docile eardrums forever.

So fasten your seatbelts, put on your headphones and get on board this new supersonic rocket that will take you to unsuspected musical galaxies!
