end of the first hour. The second hour features music from tenor player Yannick Rieu, who has long been a prominent player in the
Montreal and Quebec jazz scene. The son of immigrants from France, he studied at conservatories in Rennes (France) and Quebec. He emerged in the 1980s playing in the bands of Vic Vogel and Jean Beaudet. Perhaps less well known in Canada outside Quebec, Rieu
has toured widely in China and France. His 1990 début recording, In the Myth, featured Montreal-born pianist Paul Bley as a guest on some tracks. In 2006 Yannick Rieu was awarded the Montreal jazz festival’s Prix Oscar Peterson.
