Martin Desjardins lets his saxophone resonate through his favorite pieces. He contributed to various projects as an instrumentalist, composer and/or arranger, including three albums and three hundred concerts with the song collective Polémil Bazar, who was awarded the Alternative Album of the year Félix for Chants de Mine. Martin also contributed to the recording and concerts of the singer-songwriter Pépé (Pépé goes français, released in 2009) and the Fanfarniente Della Strada (album Zaza released in 2009), and collaborated with the Lost Fingers and the Monfarleau brass band.
He completed his Master’s in Jazz Interpretation in 2013 at Laval University where he studied with saxophonists Janis Steprans and Rémi Bolduc. Thanks to Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec’s grants received in 2007 and 2013 to compose, he created his own jazz septet. He is currently working on new projects for trio, and quartet, and he just started his doctorate in Musicology at Laval University.
