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. It is a mosaic of compositions based on the life course of people from different cultural communities living or having immigrated to Quebec, Canada, blending stories and shedding light on the intermixing of cultures. 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.
