Trifolia

Le refuge

Independent Release [2013]

Ambitious recording featuring new music by Marianne Trudel (piano, accordion, Wurlitzer, vocals), Étienne Lafrance (double bass) and Patrick Graham (percussion).
The expansive music that they make breaks a lot of boundaries. The influences of jazz, classical and world music blend seamlessly to produce at times cinematic results. What all of the disc’s 12 tracks have in common: great lyricism, poise and thoughtful attention to sound.
- Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen, Jazzblog
