Remi-Jean LeBlanc Quartet ft. NY's Nir Felder
Nir Felder- Guitar
Montreal's Raphael Zaldivar- Piano
Remi Jean-LeBlanc- Bass
Sam Joly- Drums
"LeBlanc eventually asked guitarist Felder to play on Déductions and tour in his group, which also includes Montreal pianist Rafael Zaldivar and drummer Samuel Joly.
“Sam is a fantastic improviser and has a language that comes a lot from rock. Nir has a unique way of playing that also comes from rock, and Rafael, who comes from Cuban music to Monk to Danilo Perez, improvises like someone who comes from outer space, which I love.”
LeBlanc is featured principally on electric bass on his album, and while his compositions cover a gamut of jazz styles, rock-inflected music dominates, although it bristles with jazz creativity and spontaneity."
