For its third concert at the Cinquième Salle at Place des Arts, the Orchestre national de jazz de Montréal presents an evening under the sign of improvisation and freedom, welcoming pianist, composer and improviser Jean-Michel Pilc, under the direction of Jean-Nicolas Trottier who signs the arrangements, plus a few compositions.

An internationally renowned pianist, Jean-Michel Pilc has built an impressive reputation during 20 years in New York and through many tours around the globe. The musician, who has just released his 4th solo album Parallel (Challenge Records), is an improviser of impressive range and deep originality and his performances are always intense, unpredictable and high-flying.
