Conseil des arts de Montréal en tournée – Emie R Roussel Trio - Quantum - 16.06.22
Auditorium Harold Greenspon - 19h00

In physics, a Quantum is the smallest indivisible unit. It also provides a perfect illustration of the trio: an ensemble composed of three individuals, with similarities as well as differences, joining together to create a unique and indivisible core. Nine pieces and four interludes act like atoms, simple individual elements uniting and combining with each other to form a whole, a complete experience. Drawing more than ever upon the creativity and cohesion of all three members, this very personal opus is marked both by the group’s singular acoustic sound and a more pronounced “groove” colour. an album where the search for sounds and textures links our beginnings to our present, while paving a path towards the future.

Christian Lajoie - Drums

A founding member of the Quasar saxophone quartet, André Leroux is a first-rate tenor saxophonist who would be a standout member of any city’s jazz scene. In his native province of Quebec, he is in high demand, working extensively with artists as varied as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, guitarist Tim Brady’s BradyWorks ensemble, the Joe Sullivan Big Band and Cirque du Soleil. Last summer, he turned heads across Canada as a substitute in fellow Montrealer Christine Jensen’s Jazz Orchestra. Leroux’s tenor solo on Jensen’s composition “Nishiyuu,” illustrated that the usually voluble, Coltrane-inspired player has an outstanding mastery of control and dynamics. The opportunity to catch Leroux leading his own band is a rare one outside of Quebec, and not to be missed.

François Bourassa, Jean Beaudet and Marianne Trudel at Festival International de Jazz de Montréal
Tribute to Paul Bley
Tickets

“There’s no thunder in Paul Bley’s music, but lots of flashes… of genius!” wrote Alain Brunet. Unfortunately, this progenitor of the free jazz revolution in the early’60s, a significant influence on Keith Jarrett, passed away this past winter. In the footsteps of their master, pianists François Bourassa, Marianne Trudel and Jean Beaudet pay him stirring tribute.
