Fred Alarie, one of the most sought-after stand-up bassist in Canada amazes by the color, depth and audacity he puts forward in his work: as a musician, composer, or soloist, he constantly pushes the limits of both his own expression and of jazz itself.

In 2016, the Frederic Alarie Quartet presented a concert dedicated to Alarie’s idol Scott LaFaro at the Montréal International Jazz Festival. Exceptionally, the International Society of Bassists (ISB), owner of LaFaro’s restored famous bass, lent the precious instrument to Alarie for this occasion. He was allowed to keep the bass for more performances, and he recorded the last track of this album in the studio with this celebrated instrument.

Jonathan Valin of The Absolute Sound: “Sounded truly wonderful—beautiful, majestic, and very full- range. I was particularly wowed by Fred’s tribute to Chet Baker, recorded with Neumann U67s, which had gorgeous timbre and realistic bite on trumpet.”
