Finding themselves every week in a studio as the house band for the weekly TV show "En Direct de L'Univers", these four accomplished musicians have decided to try something different and fun by creating a quartet that could offer a
repertoire of jazz tunes made up of original compositions and covers of popular tunes re-arranged by the group.
The covers include songs by Coldplay, Paul Simon, Michael Jackson, Neil Young, Lou Reed, and The Beatles. A nod to the
album "New Standards" by Herbie Hancock. Paul Brochu, drums, ex-member of Uzeb, has worked with Michel Legrand and Gino Vanelli among others. Jean-Francois Groulx, piano, has had his own jazz trio for many years and has recorded seven albums under his own name.
Jean-Benoit Lasante, guitar, has toured with Garou, been music director for Gregory Charles, and is currently music director for "En Direct de L'Univers". Peter Kisilenko , bass, has 45 years of experience doing tours, recording, and TV shows. He has accompanied Sammy Davis Jr. ,Ranee Lee and Michel Legrand among others.
