About the Album

The writings of Joseph Campbell on “following one's bliss" form the driving idea behind of this collection of new pieces by Toronto based musician Eric St-Laurent. With plenty time set aside to write, undisturbed and outside of the world’s fast pace of change, editing and mixing over several months, every step of the production was slow, deliberate. The set was conceived with featured guest trumpeter (and long time friend) Sebastian Studnitzky in mind. His soft, reflective tone lends an introspective quality to the recording. The fiery rhythm section of Michel DeQuevedo (percussion) and Jordan O’Connor (bass) provide a muscular counterpoint, while St-Laurent’s post-Benson approach supplies the blues. Recorded in Berlin, mixed and mastered in Toronto, ‘BLISS STATION’ is St-Laurent’s thirteenth’s solo album.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
