Between touring the world and heading the guitar department at Humber College, Jocelyn Gould has also just released her third recording as a leader called Sonic Bouquet.

Building on the success of her first two albums, the Juno-winning guitar, vocalist and compser’s latest studio album is intended to capture the spirit and spontaneity of a live club performance. Sonic Bouquet was recorded in a single day, immediately after Gould’s return to Toronto from a six-week, 33-show tour of the United States. Gould and her band had landed in Toronto together just in time to start a four-night run at the Rex Hotel. The morning after their last show, they entered the studio to record this nine-song set.

Gould’s ensemble features an unconventional front line of two guitars and clarinet. Hailing from all over North America and spanning three generations, the featured musicians include drummer Quincy Davis from Texas, bassist Rodney Whitaker and guitarist Randy Napoleon from Michigan, pianist Will Bonness from Winnipeg, and clarinetist Virginia MacDonald from Toronto.
