Parc X trio, winners of the TD Grand Prize for Jazz from the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal in 2010, are celebrating their fifth anniversary. For this special occasion, founding members Gabriel Vinuela-Pelletier (piano and compositions) and Alex Lefaivre (double bass and compositions) have enlisted Alain Bourgeois (drums) for Parc X trio's new project. This ambitious and large-scale project consists of two full albums as well as two short EPs that will be released throughout 2012 and 2013. These albums will present Parc X trio in their usual acoustic format as well as in an electric version bordering on prog and indie rock. In their constant quest for innovation and with the help of sound engineer Tim Gowdy (Parc X trio, Coral Egan, Odyssey Works), the band recorded everything in one room without edits at Pierre Marchand's studio in Montreal. This particular recording context allowed them to capture the raw power of their new compositions and sounds creating an experience closer to the high energy of Parc X trio's live sets than anything they have recorded in the past. Parc X trio have found their own unique voice in the contemporary jazz world with a sound heavily influenced by rock, urban beats and pop style melodies.
