Welcome to a new edition of the Neon Jazz interview series with Montreal-based Jazz Pianist & Composer Gentiane MG .. We talked about her third album .. the new 2022 CD Walls of Glass .. Her band shares a deep bond that obscures the boundaries between written and improvised material. Early on, while studying and performing works from the great classical composers such as Bach, Chopin, Ravel, she was beginning to experiment with creating music, seeking an outlet for self expression. A growing interest in improvisation led her in her late teenage years to shift her focus towards jazz .. In addition to her artistic career, she is an in-demand teacher that has shared her experience and knowledge with students from all over the world, having been a course lecturer at McGill University and a guest lecturer at institutions such as the University of Veracruz in Mexico. She has also maintained her private teaching studio for the last 15 years... Enjoy this interview.
