Emie R Roussel Trio, new cd to come


 

During the past two years, the Trio has had the privilege of presenting their music in eleven countries on four continents. The time spent together discovering other cultures during these trips deeply impacted and inspired the Trio, who are back with a whole new level of complicity and mutual understanding on their new album, Intersections. The hard-won musical cohesion of the group’s three members puts a particular spotlight on groove and melody via a sound at times more acoustic, at others more electric. On their respective journeys, the members of the group had the chance to cross paths with musicians who affected them tremendously. This inspired the idea to bring together the evolving musical universe of the Trio with the influences of three special guests, for each of whom was written a unique composition that would best benefit from their collaboration. Thus the album consists of seven tunes as a trio, and three as a quartet, presenting in their turn Guadeloupean singer and songwriter Malika Tirolien, Canadian/New-Zealand trumpeter Lex French, and Canadian bassist Norman Lachappelle. These precious shared moments, and each member's creativity, meet at the crossroads of their respective paths, the intersections of their musical odysseys…

Yves Léveillé septet concert and CD launch "Essences des bois"

On February 26th at the famed Cabaret du Lion d'or, wil be the concert and CD launch of Essences des bois by the Yves Léveillé septet. Here is how the composer describes the genesis of this one of a kind esthetic offering:

"With this project, I wanted to get out of known musical paths by putting woodwinds at the forefront and avoiding the habitual use of brass which often predominates in jazz. I wanted energetic and tonic woodwinds without neglectinc their sultry nature. It is with a set of seven musicians coming from the jazz world (Yves Leveille Quartet) and classical world that we took up the challenge. The supple interpretation of the jazzmen combined with the refinement of the musicians accustomed to classical and contemporary repertoire gave a surprising result, all in delicacy. I am very proud of the outcome of this artistic endeavour."

Concert and CD Launch - "Tome III Errances" by Vincent Gagnon

On Tome III Errances, Vincent Gagnon’s third album is a mélange of live jazz and romance that inspires impressionistic lyrical landscapes to be painted on the imagination.

Concert and CD Launch - "Tome III Errances" by Vincent Gagnon

On Tome III Errances, Vincent Gagnon’s third album is a mélange of live jazz and romance that inspires impressionistic lyrical landscapes to be painted on the imagination.

Recorded during three concerts at Palais Montcalm in 2013, Errrances immerses listeners in a universe molded by poetry and inspired by nocturnal scenes of St-Petersburg, Asuncion, Lausanne and Quebec City. This is music that is mind-expanding and exciting, rich in emotion and improvisation, yet uncomplicated in composition.

This jazz rendez-vous will begin by a conference given by radio MC Stanley Péan whose words will be musically illustrated by the Vincent Gagnon Quartet. The captivating radio host of the daily "Quand le jazz est là" wil speak about different jazz styles.

CD launch and Concert February 13th at 8pm

"Chercher l'équilibre" figures in Le Devoir's top 5 jazz album released in 2014

"The québécois album: Cherchez l'équilibre, of Trio Jérôme Beaulieu, on Effendi. Following the same footsteps as Esbjörn Svensson or Ethan Iverson, Jérôme Beaulieu directs a trio that inspires itself from the actual pop-rock culture. Good rhythmic foundation, beautiful melodic impulses, strong harmonic progressions: Beaulieu and his band hit hard. And well."

Guillaume Bourgault-Côté, Le Devoir, 27 décembre 2013
