about

Intuition is the second release from the Francois Carrier Trio. They perform frequently in Quebec City and it’s a treat to be able to hear these outstanding Canadian musicians. Mr. Carrier plays impassioned alto saxophone in a program of deeply emotional and spontaneous incantations. His band mates (Pierre Cote, bass, and Francois Cote, drums) provide intuitive support and excellent solos. The band has been working together for several years and have developed an impressive empathy.

The music on this 77 minute disc (!) was composed by Mr. Carrier with the exception of John Coltrane’s "Lonnie’s Lament." Indeed, the music of John Coltrane appears to be a talisman for these excellent musicians. They honor Trane’s memory by carrying on the spirit of his musical quest in their own voices.

Intuition is evidence of the dedication and commitment of the Francois Carrier Trio. They create true beauty within the traditions and influences in which all jazz musicians must operate. A moving example of human emotion flowing in a pure musical expression, devoid of ego and grandstanding,

Fans of Coltrane and Threadgill will particularly enjoy this music, but the sound of the human heart may inspire anyone. Listen and be inspired.
