Montreal-based trumpeter Jacques Kuba Séguin returns with Parfum n°1, an album that explores “the genesis of life.”

It’s the first in the Juno-winning jazz musician’s new cycle of works called La trilogie des odeurs, which examines the power of scent (as well as hearing) to appeal to our subconscious, awakening memories and provoking a wide range of emotions.

Parfum n°1 is inspired by the natural and raw materials that make up perfume and delves into the early years of life with references to childhood, particularly the first meeting between parent and a child.
