We played to a near-capacity audience in the concert hall of Maison de la culture Mercier, in Montreal's east-end. This was the final show in a series of concerts sponsered by the Conseil des Arts de Montréal and L'Off Festival de jazz de Montréal. A warm, enthusiastic and very responsive audience made this a memorable show for us. I hope we have captured the good vibes in this recording.
