ALAIN CARON IS A CANADIAN VIRTUOSO BASS PLAYER, FORMER MEMBER OF UZEB, CONSIDERED FOR DECADES ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND INFLUENTIAL MUSICIANS ON THE WORLD STAGE.

Alain Caron is best known for his many years as a member of Uzeb (Quebec jazz supergroup), but also for having released many solo albums.

Alain Caron is one of the strongest bass voices of today, just as skilled at fretless bass as he is at fretted and acoustic. He is able to produce wonderful melodies on the fretless, impeccably performed, and to switch to fretted bass with an incredible slap technique that is second to none.

He has recorded and toured with jazz greats including Oliver Jones, Lorraine Desmarais, Mike Stern, Frank Gambale, Bireli Lagrene, Didier Lockwood, Tiger Okoshi, Billy Cobham and Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez.

Caron received two Oscar Peterson Awards from the Montreal Jazz Festival for his contribution to Canadian jazz – the first in 1991 with Uzeb and the second in 2013 for his solo work. In 2005 his album “5” was nominated for the JUNO Award in the category “Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year”. He won 10 Félix awards, including the best album of the year in 2011, for his seventh solo album, Sep7entrion.
