Mathieu Soucy Quartet
Album LAUNCH: Recollecting

Mathieu Soucy (he/him) is “an exciting young guitarist” (Laila Biali, Saturday Night Jazz) and composer living in Montréal. His first album “Recollecting” (Inner-Bop Records) features brilliant voices of the new generation of Canadian jazz and is set for release on September 30th. JUNO-winning Caity Gyorgy makes a guest appearance on two tracks as a vocalist and lyricist.

The album is a recollective act, i.e. it speaks the same language as that of the hard-bop pioneers, Barney Kessel and his famous trio for instance, but it does so with an accent; that of a 27-year old Canadian artist whose inmost voice has been coloured by the likes of neo-bop master Mark Turner. Mathieu has had the chance to study with modern guitarists of renown Peter Bernstein and Alex Goodman.
