Musique-politique Quatuor de jazz libre du Québec

The set adds substantially to the history of jazz in Canada, casting new light on its most intense moment, as well as a significant contributory stream to Québec’s diverse concept of musique actuelle, perhaps the most vigorous scene in contemporary Canadian music. The WholeNote, Canada
