Yannick Rieu – “MachiNations”
Jazzycolors 2021 Festival

Centre culturel canadien
November 16th, 2021 20:00 - 21:30

Crédits : Randy Cole

[FULLY BOOKED – Waiting list: reservation@canada-culture.org]On November 16, 2021 at 8pm, join us at the Canadian Cultural Centre for a concert by Canadian saxophonist Yannick Rieu who will deliver his “MachiNations” on stage as part of the 19th edition of the FICEP Jazzycolors Festival!

Recognized as one of the most talented saxophonists on the international scene, Yannick Rieu plays on stage with 4 exceptional musicians: Louis-Vincent Hamel on drums, Al Baculis on electric bass, Daniel Thouin on keyboards and François Jalbert on guitar.

Together, they explore the grooves and sounds that have marked Yannick Rieu’s musical journey, from R&B to funk, from jazz-rock to drum and bass. The group is thus distinguished by the multiplicity of its musical influences, and bears the signature of a brilliant and mature artist, always in search of originality and balance.

This concert is part of a residency for the artist and his band at the Rocher de Palmer in Cenon, from 5 to 11 November 2021.

Yannick Rieu
After studying at the Conservatories of Rennes in France, Chicoutimi and Montreal, Canadian Yannick Rieu began his career as a jazz saxophonist in 1980. In 1988, the jazz bible DownBeat ranked him among the 20 most promising saxophonists in the world: he then played internationally and won numerous awards. In 2006, he was the 18th recipient of the Oscar Peterson Award at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, and subsequently received three Félix de l’ADISQ awards in the best jazz album of the year category for “What Is the Colour of Love”, “Little Zab” and “I Is Memory”.
