C'est avec une immense tristesse que nous partageons avec vous cette nouvelle: Jan Jarczyk nous a quitté hier, dimanche le 3 août, après un combat contre le cancer. Fidèle à lui-même, il l'a mené en silence, laissant toute la place à la musique. C'était un mari, un père et un Être merveilleux. Merci de perpétuer son esprit par vos mots, vos pensées et votre musique.


It is with the greatest sadness that we share with you the passing of Jan Jarczyk. He died yesterday, Sunday August 3rd, 2014 after a fight with cancer which he chose to keep private. He was a wonderful husband and father to us and a great human being. For Jan, we thank you for your kind words, thoughts and music.

At the end of this month the 10th installment of the Zaduszki concert series will be taking place. How time flies! I have had the privilege of being joined by some truly exceptional talent during the past decade and am proud to say that for this special 10th anniversary performance, I will be accompanied by a great team of musicians, among some of the best that the city, and country, have to offer I'm proud to say! We will have Jacques Kuba Sequin on trumpet, Chet Doxas on tenor sax, Mario Allard (replacing Rémi) on alto sax, and along with myself there is Fraser Hollins on bass and Jim Doxas on drums, the other 2 thirds of my Full Circle trio. I have no doubt that it will be an enjoyable evening for both those on the stage as well as those in the audience. Admission is free and I encourage all those who are free that evening to join us!

For more details please see the Itinerary Section.
