The Marianne Trudel Quintet puts joy into their NAC show

The Quintet has been touring to promote Trudel's just-released CD, La Vie Commence Ici, for the last week. By tonight, you could hear the ease in their playing, the confident attack in their solos, and the sheer joy and fire they put into the music. They left many listeners very happy.

Watch for a full review of the concert with photos on Sunday.
