With the pandemic not letting up, several representatives of the Montreal jazz scene have decided to collaborate in the development of the joint project JAZZ EN RAFALE -LIVE CAM.
JAZZ EN RAFALE-LIVE CAM will present 9 concerts by Quebec artists in LIVE and Delayed Webcast between January and May 2021 in order to give jazz fans a chance to hear some live music.
This initiative coordinated by the EFFENDI label will be done in collaboration with Piccolo Studios (recording and broadcasting location), MB Production (video recording and webcasting), Justin Toussaint (Web Master), Pascal Milette (graphic designer) and several Quebec jazz self-producers: Fam group, Boulev’art, Yari Productions, Odd Sound, Yves Léveillé Productions, Félix Stüssi Productions, Collectif Jazzlab Orchestra and their associated artists.

JAZZ EN RAFALE – LIVE CAM will use the specialized platforms lepointdevente.com for ticket sales and Vimeo for web diffusion.
For JAZZ EN RAFALE-LIVE CAM the first objective is to create an unforgettable experience for each musicianwith outstanding events so that they perform at their maximum, in the best possible conditions, via the Web. The second objective, which is very important, is to attract a new audience. Currently with the pandemic, live or delayed Webcasting is becoming a strategy that gives the ability to reach people who can no longer go to concerts and/or who can no longer access “live” events easily, here and/or elsewhere. Like all live music, jazz suffers greatly from this. Let’s encourage Quebec Jazz Artists during these tough times.
