Pianist, Composer, Arranger Julian Gutierrez

Montreal, January 7, 2023 – Julian Gutierrez reinforces his ambition with the Julian Gutierrez’s Project by launching a second physical album, Goldstream on February 9, 2023. Moving between the borders of jazz and Latin music, this virtuoso pianist of Cuban origin makes his mark by offering a second opus totally in your image.

The artist invites the press to the launch of his physical album Goldstream on February 9, at 7:30 pm, which will be held at the Salle Émile-Legault in a warm atmosphere, to better immerse themselves in his music so festive.

“This project is the realization of hard work that began during my doctoral studies. As much in terms of composition, harmonic and melodic research as in terms of interpretation. My album Goldstream is part of a series of projects close to my heart. Modal jazz, Latin jazz and pieces arranged with a big band formation. Another great source of inspiration for me is nature, both the landscapes of my homeland of Cuba, and the beauty and poetry that emanate from the landscapes of Canada, my host country. The blaze of colors on Mount Orford in Estrie, the Goldstream salmon river in Victoria, British Columbia, among others. I am very happy to have collaborated with exceptional musicians who helped me convey my vision and my music. Thank you all!” – Julian Gutierrez
