LINA ALLEMANO FOUR is an acoustic chamber-jazz quartet that plays bandleader/trumpeter Lina Allemano’s ground-breaking new music. Hailed as Canada’s leading cutting-edge ensemble, the band is known internationally for their inventiveness and synergy as they deftly blur the line between composition and improvisation. The band has been touring extensively since 2005 all across Europe, USA and Canada. Their music has been described as abstract melodicism, combining lush colours with dense free-flowing rhythmic textures. The band’s first 5 albums on Lumo Records received many accolades internationally, and their 6th release, Vegetables, is nominated for the 2022 JUNO Awards Jazz Album of the Year (Group) and is gaining wide recognition in international publications including Downbeat Magazine, The Wire, JazzTimes, and many many more.
