about

For their debut album, the JMC has opted to entice its audience with a good dose of nu-jazz, a hint of soul, a dash of hip-hop and some saxual brass. Out to make a statement, the JMC’s motto is to be groovy and they do a bang-up job. The help of a sensual singer, a dedicated MC and a solid rhythmic section are vital. Thanks to Marjorie Fiset, Peter Tardif, Philippe Cyr, Guillaume Tondreau, Jod Lamarche and William Côté. Nu-jazz influenced by Medeski Martin & Wood ; hip-hop à la The Roots ; soul alike Erykah Badu ! Voilà! This is what the so fresh and so green music of the JMC sounds like. Their album represents a particular musical evolution brought on by the amalgamation of jazz and hip-hop; out to save the world with one jazz dream! Making a Statement is also a critique of important global issues; Uncle Sam’s influence is of concern to MC Peter Tardif and they haven’t been able to shut him up yet! Since its creation in 2007, The JMC Project has performed on over 80 different stages in Quebec and Ontario such as Montreal Jazz Festival, Quebec City Summer Festival, lʼImpérial, Club Soda, Babylon Night Club, Arbor Room, Cabaret Box Office, Woodstock en Beauce, and the Off Festival.

The JMC Project is a sextet where the texts are set, the sets are tight, where jazz and hip-hop set the record straight. This project is not about making it.
It's about the fun while making it.
Music. And that's it.
The JMC Project returns with a new EP, "Hey People". The band has defined their unique sound and is officially back with the magic.
You will bob your head to this. Oh Snap!
