Spearheaded by trumpeter Rachel Therrien, Why Don’t You Try presents a collaborative mosaic of original music by each member of the quintet. Recorded at Montreal’s Studio 270 with technician Robert Langlois and mixed at Studio ToneBender by Olivier St-Pierre, the project presents tasty jazz-rock with creative arrangements and beautiful cohesion between the musicians. Co-produced by Rachel Therrien and Kim Neundorf for Free Run Artists Productions, Why Don’t You Try features the sound of Simon Pagé’s groovy electric bass, Charles Trudel’s virtuoso piano, Alain Bourgeois’s energetic drums, Benjamin Deschamps’s inventive saxophone, and Rachel Therrien’s inspired trumpet. Why Don’t You Try is woven of bold musical proposals, great moments of improvisation and a sympathetic humoristic touch.

This project was made possible in part by the Government of Canada and the TD Grand Prix 2015 of the International Jazz Festival of Montreal.
