Mario Allard Quintet
Alto Saxophone: Mario Allard, Trumpet: David Carbonneau, Piano: Charles Trudel, Bass: Sébastien Pellerin, Drums: Alain Bourgeois
Laureate of the 2017 Montreal Arts Council Jazz Award and nominated for Jazz Album of the Year and Jazz Concert of the Year at the Opus Prize in 2019, Mario Allard launched his second album « Diaporama » last fall as part of the OFF Festival de Jazz de Montréal. Both dynamic and melodic, the compositions are inspired by lived episodes, atmospheres or characters. Drawn by Will Vinson, Dave Douglas and Donny McCaslin, the pieces form an imaginative universe where the listener can be carried away in different horizons.
