Eclectic Django (pour le grand manouche Django Reinhardt) interprète un répertoire américain et européen du jazz d'avant-guerre mais ne vous surprenez pas si vous reconnaissez au détour un air de chanson française - le jazz permettant toutes les incursions. Tel le métronome, cet évènement de début de soirée anime les mercredis du Dièse onze depuis déjà 5 ans - et aucun signe d'essoufflement ne semble vouloir ternir cette tradition sommes toute amicale. Ambiance, musique et musiciens au rendez-vous - bienvenue !

This elasticity of improvisation places the music in a constant state of evolution.

JAM SESSION ANIMé PAR ALEX BELLEGARDE TRIO

Alex Bellegarde’s dynamic Tuesday jam session has become one of Montreal’s hippest weekly jazz events. The first set fires up with Bellegarde and his trio, playing host to a range of well known talents from the Montreal scene as well as musicians from out of town. The jam opens in the second set, to any jazz musician with the confidence to step up and play…there’s an unspoken rule though: “If you can’t keep up, you shouldn’t be on stage”. A great place to play and chill…. the jam continues on into the early hours!

As early as 1988, Down Beat, the American bible of jazz, ranked him amongst the 20 most promising sax players in the world along side Branford Marsalis, Joe Lovano and Courtney Pine.

AL MCLEAN & FRIENDS

Hands down Montreal's preeminent talent of the Jazz saxophone, Al McLean owns the night in this grand old Jazz city. Mentoring countless students of the music, McLean's brute force, and seemingly bottomless depths as an improviser keep his professional cohorts honest. The bar he sets is sky high, with an equally nimble command of bebop, and more avant garde repertoire rooted in the language of Coltrane. McLean is also a sought after saxophone restoration expert. Specializing in vintage instruments from the first half of the 20th Century, McLean makes the old horns sing. He can be found most nights of the week in Montreal's numerous Jazz hot spots, glittering vintage horn in hand, wowing audiences, inspiring (or unnerving) his band mates.
