Alain Caron biography
Canadian bassist Alain CARON was already building his chops is cover bands when, at age 14 he discovered his passion for jazz. In 1977, he met guitarist Michel CUSSON, and became a fixture in the progressive fusion band UZEB. It was during this time that CARON, up to this point completely self-taught, was accepted to Boston's Berklee College of Music.

During his time at Berklee, CARON hooked up with many of Boston's top jazz musicians, and performed extensively with artists like Jerry BERGONZI and Bob MOSES, to name just a few.

After Berklee, CARON focused on UZEB again for a time befor, in 1993, starting his own solo career, which has led to tours with many luminaries, including Mike Stern, Frank GAMBALE, Bireli LAGRENE, Didier LOCKWOOD, Tiger OKOSHI, Billy COBHAM and more.

CARON continues to perform and record to this day, as well as teach bass to musicians around the world.

Alain Caron Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by darkshade
Collaborator Jazz Rock/Fusion Team

4 stars Another great modern fusion recording. I'm telling you, the last few years have seen some of the best jazz-fusion albums this side of the 1970s. This album "Sep7entrion" (the "7" is stands for a "T") has everything you want. Rock-heavy riffs, fantastic thick bass lines, tight drums, odd-time rhythms, funky grooves, and some great melody lines that remind me of Return To Forever, Chick Corea Elektric Band, (no wonder, as Frank Gambale is on this album), Jaco Pastorius' self titled, and Brand X. Alain Caron is one of the most technically proficient jazz bassist around, up there with the likes of Victor Wooten.

What makes this stand out from other modern fusion albums is the great compositional talent from Caron. The music progresses, and goes through an array of moods. I never heard of Damien Schmitt before, but he is so in the pocket behind the drum kit, that I sometimes think he's the star of the show. Very talented musician.

The grooves on this album are what make me keep coming back to this album. All the technical proficiency from everyone involved is great and all, but they really know how to make your body move. This a fusion album I recommend anyone into the genre to check out. You won't be disappointed. This would be a 5 star album if not for the fact that the energy level drops a bit on the last 2 tracks, but otherwise, this is a fantastic album.
