The Solon McDade Quintet

The Solon McDade Quintet is a joy to behold. Bassist Solon McDade has gathered some of Canada's finest jazz musicians for a dynamic exploration of energy created by live improvised music. Masterful yet relaxed, crisp yet grooving, each instrumentalist brings their individuality to a blend developed over years of playing together combining into a sublime experience of modern originals meeting a true classic sound. The Solon McDade Quintet is equal parts bass, piano, drums and two saxophones kicked up in a flash of elegant swinging energy.

The Claire Devlin Quartet (Matinée)

Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Claire Devlin is now a Montreal-based saxophonist and composer. In 2012, she was the recipient of the Rising Young Star award at the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival, as well as receiving a scholarship to attend McGill University. She attended the Banff Jazz & Creative Music Workshop in 2017 where she met and studied with Vijay Iyer, Linda Oh, Tyshawn Sorey, Jen Shyu, Gretchen Parlato, Gary Burtz, and many more.

Formed in 2016, the Claire Devlin Quartet unites four unique musical voices from the Montreal jazz scene. Lyrical melodies are paired with driving rhythms, and the traditional roles of each instrument are often left behind. The quartet’s repertoire of original music strikes a balance of intricate through-composition and completely open-ended improvisation. In July 2020, the Claire Devlin Quartet released their debut album, “Anyone”, on Florafone Records.
