In Spring 2012, pianist Vincent Gagnon came up with a brand new recording. Himalaya, an inspired sequel to Bleu cendre, presents recent compositions, interpreted by major jazzmen from Quebec and Montreal:
Alain Boies – soprano/alto sax.
Michel Côté – tenor sax / maïkotron
Guillaume Bouchard – upright bass
Michel Lambert – drums / maïkotron
Himalaya was finalist at Gala des Prix Opus for the Jazz Record of the Year – 2011/2012 award.
