Enjoy this recent (Feb 2021) French language interview with Bruno on CBC Radio/Radio-Canada’s Boulevard du Pacifique program. The interview begins around 28 minutes into the program.
“It begins with “Poco” and the burnished horn mix, in the pocket, and the feel good vibe that well recorded hard bop brings. Pianist, Bruno Hubert, provides swinging, sparkling accompaniment…”
“The Fender Rhodes is utilized on two tracks (“Likes” and “Superlux”). Its percolating rhythms bring a CTI funky feel that ups the energy, and broadens the sound mix. “Not a Dream” is a ballad that features Hubert on piano…”
“This quintet cooks…”
“This Vancouver band gave a lesson on how to deconstruct and arrange jazz standards, turning ballads into rumbas and swing tunes into Afro-Cuban explorations. Hubert’s piano solos were ace, bassist James Meger provided strength and Joe Poole proved he’s the best drummer in the city. ”
