Nonlinear: Steve Boudreau & Peter Hum
Chamberfest is proud to present the launch of Nonlinear, a duo debut album of original compositions by two of Ottawa’s favourite jazz pianists! Join Steve Boudreau and Peter Hum at La Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins as they play a program focused on their joint efforts. Thanks to a grant from the City of Ottawa, Boudreau and Hum took to the studio last fall and the final product, Nonlinear, will be launched at Chamberfest. Expect their performance to showcase a distinctive and highly interactive approach to playing lyrical and dynamic music rich in improvisation.
Known in Ottawa for his work as a local journalist, Hum was bitten as a teen by the jazz bug in the form of music by Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Hum has performed with many Canadian jazz legends and featured others in his own projects. Steve Boudreau is also an Ottawa-based pianist who specialises in jazz and popular music. A teacher for over 20 years, Boudreau has toured the United States and Canada extensively and performed as both leader and sideman at various jazz festivals. Hum and Boudreau are prolific collaborators. Both are guests on many albums and have released recordings of their own compositions; Boudreau’s latest trio album, Cherished Possessions, is receiving praise and radio play around the world.
