Shpik - Fabulation (2016)

It is with pleasure that the Montreal based jazz trio SHPIK will launch “Fabulation”, its first opus of on the 11th of November at the Gesù in Montreal (Canada). Consisting of pianist and composer Arnaud Spick-Saucier, bassist Etienne Dextraze and drummer Philippe Lussier-Baillargeon, SHPIK offers a bold and impressionistic music, drawing its inspiration from jazz and film. Evoking the great outdoors, self-discovery, navigating between the immensity and the infinitely small, this first album offers an intricate musical journey full of spirit and reflection.
