about

This is the first (double) CD by François Carrier in Leo Records catalogue. “He is one of Québec’s (and Canada’s) essential musical voices, a saxophonist who has combined commitment and discipline with intuition and inspiration to gradually realize an arresting musical vision, one that is compounded of free-jazz traditions and a compellingly personal melodic invention. On Happening, Carrier combines both long-standing and fresh musical partnerships with free improvisation and contrasting tonal systems to reach levels of sometimes startling immediacy”

(Stuart Broomer).
