Three years following the release of his album Conversations, an intimate duo’s album with his closest friends and collaborators, Alain Caron renews and returns to his roots with this exciting JAZZ FUSION album Septentrion. On this new release, Alain does not disappoint and takes on the genre head-on, giving you a fresh look at fusion in 2010. The musical nuances of the past decades find there way into this new opus along with a style, virtuosity and vocabulary that is strictly CARON.

The album regroups nine titles that tacitly fuse traditional jazz, rock, funk, touches of African influences and south-American music. To achieve this, Alain Caron surrounded himself with renowned musicians from all over the world yielding a meld of styles that is remarkable and refreshing. Guitarists Pierre Côté (Canada), Jean-Marie Ecay (France) and the legendary guitarist Frank Gambale (Australia and U.S.). Pianists John Roney (Canada), Otmaro Ruiz (Venezuela–U.S.) and Tony Raymond (France). Violinist Christophe Raymond (France) and drummer Damien Schmitt (France–U.S.), a young prodigy that will astound you.

The album title Septentrion was chosen to highlight Alain`s Nordic roots and punctuate the fact that this is his seventh studio album to date.
