ROBI BOTOS: “OLD SOUL” Album Release
ROBI BOTOS – piano
MIKE DOWNES – bass
LARNELL LEWIS – drums
After taking home a JUNO Award for “Jazz Album of the Year” for his last record, “Movin’ Forward,” Robi Botos returns with a brand-new record that pays homage to his Hungarian upbringing, the early days of his career, and the music that he has dedicated his life to. This record sees Robi not only venturing into a number of different genres (jazz, funk, soul, gospel and more!), but he also plays on a number of different instruments including the Harpejji, which he was inspired to learn and incorporate into his sound by Stevie Wonder. Robi is joined by some familiar faces such as longtime collaborators Mike Downes on bass and Larnell Lewis on drums, as well as Seamus Blake on saxophone. Also joining them for the first time is Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Garrett) on the mighty Hammond B3, Ingrid Jensen (Clark Terry, Maria Schneider, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Billy Taylor) on trumpet, and Lionel Loueke (Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove, Wayne Shorter) on guitar. Robi is thrilled to return to Jazz Bistro to celebrate the release of this deeply personal milestone record.
“Old Soul” releases on A440/Universal Music Canada on February 2nd 2018.
