Tertio is Jazz-Rock band from Montreal with a unique sound of its own, a cross between modern Jazz, urban rhythms and the raw energy of rock.

Their second album "La mince ligne" was released on Multiple Chord Music in October 2019.

La mince Ligne



La mince ligne est le deuxième album du groupe montréalais Tertio. Fidèle à ses racines Jazz-Rock, le groupe explore ici des sonorités plus moderne et s’aventure même dans des envolées country-folk tout en conservant son lyrisme habituel. Ce deuxième album confirme Tertio comme étant une formation prometteuse de la scène Jazz canadienne, tout en mettant de l’avant les qualités des improvisateurs hors-pairs qui composent le groupe. 

The thin line


La mince ligne” (The thin line) is the second alb of Montreal’s based quintet Tertio. As much loyal to its jazz-jock roots, the band expands its musical territories, sometimes in the modern jazz idioma, and even in a country-folk composition, without losing its own musical identity and lyricism. This second album confirms Tertio as one of Canada’s most promising band, by featuring the abilities of its wonderful musicians, composer and improvisers.

"The music is sometimes windy, but never at the expense of the narrative quality, essence and poetry. Some numbers are even pearls, for example; the quiet ballad, Hollow."

Ivan Rod, Danmark 

Sorties Jazz Nights

"This savvy chemistry is everything but academic stands somewhere in between funk (..) and complex rhythms of the late Weather report." 

"VDP mène cette fine équipe, non pas à la baguette mais d'une main de maître".

Christophe Rodriguez, Canada

Wulf Muller Blog

"Their music is an individual and intense mix of influences ranging from Weather Report to Miles Davis it is funky and melodic and played by a very tight band. Marvellous!"
Wulf Mueller, Spain 

Cups and cakes Podcast

"This is big city jazz, modern in its angular formation like carefully drawn architectural lines but still with the gritty underbelly. It is chill but also fast paced and warm but “cool”, La Mince Ligne (the thin line) is the balance between relaxation and the hustle." 

Jeshaiah David, Canada

The Jazz Hole

"Tertio's leader is giving us an impressive series of compositions which showcases the progression of his writing as well as the cohesion ins the sound of the band".  

Lynus Wyrch, The Jazz Hole, NY, USA

Rhythm-a-ning, CFUV 101.9 FM

"This quintet of musicians, guitar, trumpet plus rhythm play with passion and an ear for each others playing. The arrangements are tight and everyone has a chance to speak(...)I would say that it is "Good Music", played by good musicians."

Arnold Van Klaveren,
