The trio is led by pianist and composer Gentiane MG alongside bassist Levi Dover and drummer Louis-Vincent Hamel. This award winning trio has toured extensively across Quebec, Canada and Mexico.  Eternal Cycle, their first album, was named one of the 10 best Canadian jazz releases of 2017 by CBC music, and earned the Revelation Radio-Canada Jazz Award. They have since released a second album with Effendi Records, Wonderland, which won the OPUS prize for Discovery of the year in 2020. Their music is rooted in the jazz tradition and inspired by a range of other influences such as romantic and impressionist music from the 19th century and contemporary jazz.  The depth of lyricism in Gentiane's compositions is met by an equal force of unpredictability and openness, allowing these these three musicians to express their personalities, at once unique and complementary.

"This album, with its many different ways of interpreting it,
