Parc X Trio - Dream (CHALLENGE RECORDS 2017)

10 year anniversary of Parc X Trio!

Parc X trio is a Montreal-based contemporary jazz trio featuring Gabriel Vinuela (keys), Alex Lefaivre (bass) and Alain Bourgeois (drums). To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Parc X trio is releasing its 7th recording, Dream. Pursuing the electric trio format, the group’s latest musical explorations showcase their typical original blend of contemporary jazz harmonies, staggering dynamics, break-beat grooves over odd time signatures and classical music structures.

As complex as the music might seem on paper, the trio navigates through the material effortlessly with grace and power. New to the table is the group’s foray into studio production.

A subtle and tasteful approach to electronic music production spices up the album sonically over the 9 original compositions from all 3 members. One of the album’s highlights is a reworking of Tchaikovsky’s theme from Swan Lake where Parc X trio’s sonic imprint takes the original classic into the XXIst century.
