Canadian trumpeter Lina Allemano is quickly emerging as "one of the most exciting new voices of the last few years" [Point of Departure] and was named one of DownBeat Magazine's top innovative trumpeters for the future. Hailed as Canada's leading free-jazz band, LINA ALLEMANO FOUR is known internationally for their inventiveness, playfulness, and synergy as they deftly blur the line between composition and improvisation. The band has been touring extensively for the past 10 years all across Europe, USA and Canada. Their music has been described as abstract melodicism, combining lush colours with dense free-flowing rhythmic textures. "Lina Allemano and her band have created an eclectic sound that makes its own synthesis of tradition and avant-garde, of structure and freedom, of clever composition and emotional depth, of abstraction and warmth… beautiful and moving and fun." (The Free Jazz Collective, Belgium). The band's 4th internationally-acclaimed album, Live at the Tranzac, has been receiving very favourable attention from reviewers internationally, making a splash particularly in Europe and USA. The band tours USA in Oct 2015 on their 10th Anniversary Tour!
