Fiona's Comments

The Drew Jurecka string quartet introduce a set of deeply interior observations, 'Budapest' is enchanting, melancholic, close and poignant. The personnel on this album are an inspiring combination.

About the Album

Old Soul is the much-anticipated 3rd album from Canada’s most talked about pianist, Robi Botos. Following up on his Juno-nominated album, Movin’ Forward, this new album tackles some more personal, and funky material from Botos. The band features a core quartet of some of the top musicians in North America; Seamus Blake on Saxophones and EWI, Mike Downes on Acoustic and Electric Bass and Larnell Lewis on Drums. The album also features some incredible special guests; Corey Henry on Hammond B3 Organ, Ingrid Jensen on Trumpet, Lionel Loueke on Guitar as well as a string quartet on 2 pieces. Inspired by lost friends, past hometowns, and the incredible life-story that has shaped Botos, Old Soul is an album of hopeful, humble and funky music that is sure to thrill jazz and non-jazz fans!
