Thomas Carbou Jazz Evening April 12

Thomas Carbou Jazz Evening April 12

Thomas Carbou jazz guitarist at Cafe Meteor BistroA rare 8-string guitar player, Thomas Carbou is on a tour for the release of his new Ici et ailleurs album, the 21st release of an electro-jazz discography.  An opportunity to listen to a world class musician at Cafe Meteor Bistro on Friday April 12 at 9pm. Cover charge $10.

Flirting with elements of traditional music and folk, Thomas Carbou’s universe, however, can be best described as timeless electro-jazz, deployed without resistance. He is an exceptional guitarist. He imposed himself on the Montreal Jazz scene with his eclectism and his experimental boldness on an 8-string guitar.  Sometimes improvising, always surprising, Carbou is a guitarist, composer, arranger, percussionist and sampler all at once. The result: bold, pleasantly complex music.

What Others Are Saying About Thomas Carbou

” Since his arrival in Montreal back in 2003, guitarist Thomas Carbous has been very active locally. […] His 8-string acoustic guitar was specially designed to fit his hybrid technique, focused on his very rich harmonic and melodic needs. ” — Alain Brunet, La Presse

” A stunning guitarist. He certainly is one of the most impressive guitar players of his generation. ” — Frédéric Cardin, Espace Musique, Radio-Canada
