5 is the fifth soloist album bu Alain Caron and was released in 2003.
5 is an album rich of reflective atmosphere with powerful images and not generated by instrumental virtuosity full of notes.
It is not always a head atmosphere creates certain moods that are wrapped in a deep melancholy and others who could be said to be “inspired by a November day in Quebec” as Alain Caron said in an interview.
For realization of this album it took 2 years of work in which Alain Caron reaches levels of perfectionism almost manic.
“Two years of tests, experiments, construction and felling both solo and with the band until it finds the right balance between sampled sounds and live musicians in a performance of pure emotion, between traditional jazz and urban music“.
Alain Caron on this record certainly has not lost his touch: remains his instrumental virtuosity and technically magic, but showcases its emotional part that, as in 5 is amply demonstrated convincingly transcends his music and endows it with a deep personality and unsuspected.
