Congratulations to Jacques!
MiGRATIONS represents a form of jazz that will sound familiar to listeners, but also brings with it a renewed, free, personal, and uniquely emotional approach to the storied genre.

Séguin's music is cinematographic, direct, dynamic and touching. His music invites us to a sensitive experience and, hopefully, a reflection on openness to others, an open mind-set that is lived through a genre based on listening and meeting: jazz
