Olivier Babaz Releases “Virages”

Olivier Babaz: ViragesFrench bassist/composer Olivier Babaz has released his third album, Virages. Paris-born and now Montreal-based, Babaz usually focuses on working with small, acoustic jazz ensembles, but this 11-song album straddles the line between jazz and acoustic rock.

Babaz’s previous recordings include the Akoz Duo record La Lune de Kala and his own Midnight Cafeine.

This latest album finds Babaz working with Montreal-based guitarist Francois Jalbert and drummer Mark Nelson, who also played with Babaz on Midnight Cafeine.

Virages is available for download at iTunes and Bandcamp.
