GJF: Agustí Fernández and Yves Charuest // Steve Swell’s Soul Travellers

Friday, September 14, 2018 8:00 PM

Presented by Guelph Jazz Festival

Barcelona-based pianist Agustí Fernández is a giant of contemporary creative music, an improviser of boundless imagination and technical capability. Evidence of his skill is borne through the calibre of his frequent collaborators over the years: Evan Parker, Barry Guy, Peter Kowald, and many more. In recent years, a lesser-known but no less inspiring collaborator has emerged in Montreal alto saxophonist Yves Charuest. Following a hiatus from playing, Charuest re-emerged since 2010 as one of the most original voices in Canadian music, with an approach to open improvisation that combines the oblique elegance of Lee Konitz-style line-forming and the post-Parker rhythmic inventiveness of Jimmy Lyons.
