2007 Oscar Peterson Award recipient at this year's Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, François Bourassa is back with a brand new opus on Effendi Records. Masters of polyrhythms, bold melodies and sophisticated harmonies, François Bourassa and his band of musician-friends are intrepid sound explorers, bursting with as much energy on record as in their live performances. After their successful album "Live" (a Juno Award, an Opus award for Album of the year, and 4 stars in France's Jazzman Magazine), François Bourassa reached even higher in 2003 with the Effendi album "Indefinite Time". This brilliant album was critically acclaimed, with notice from US ciritcs in All About Jazz, and a coveted CHOC in Jazzman; plus a FELIX award, 3 OPUS awards, and a JUNO nomination... François' newest album, "Rasstones", (the 7th of his career) illustrates once more the band's virtuosity and deep connection to each other and to the music; after all they've performed together for nearly 25 years.
