The album Jazz Poetry: The Music of Paul Rossy is a reinterpretation of the songs from Dr. Paul Rossy’s album Goodbye Sings the Wind, launched last April in support of the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
Pediatrician by day, and musician by night, Paul Rossy recently sought out the expertise of singer-songwriter Ian Kelly to help him create an original album. Last April, Dr. Rossy found a way to combine his two greatest passions by launching his very first album of original songs at a concert benefiting the Montreal Children’s Hospital, where he practises medicine. The event was held April 29th, in a packed Corona Theatre, and allowed the singer-songwriter to raise funds thanks to all those present, and to the kind generosity of the Alan & Roula Rossy Family Foundation.
After performing at last year’s Montreal’s International Jazz Festival, Paul Rossy was inspired to put a jazz twist on his songs from the album Goodbye Sings the Wind. He once again enlisted the help of Ian Kelly as producer; with arrangements by Joel Kerr, Jonathan Cayer, and Mark Nelson.
On the album, recorded at the Pierre Marchand Studio, you can hear: Joel Kerr on upright bass, Mark Nelson on drums, Jonathan Cayer on piano/keyboard, François Jalbert on guitar, Annie Dominique on saxophone, Alexis French on trumpet and flugelhorn, Jean-Nicolas Trottier on trombone, and Lévy Bourbonnais on harmonica.
