SIMON LEGAULT TRIO - LANCEMENT DE L’ALBUM LIMINAL SPACES

This project started as a weekly session with drummer Michel Lambert and guest bassists. With new music written specifically for this trio, it took on a life of its own and ultimately became this record. After two quartet records and his previous quintet record, Simon Legault finally felt ready to make his first trio album. And with these exceptional musicians it was an absolute joy to write, play and record. "Guitar trio is a beautiful but demanding art. Simon, Adrian and Michel are bringing a powerful contribution here, coming up with a consistent and meaningful statement. All three have great command of their instrument, and it allows them to develop their ideas with confidence and clarity. The chemistry between them is palpable, and the music always sounds interesting and accomplished. Simon's playing is graced with subtlety, depth and a sure sense of construction. Phrases sound effortless while making sense, each note is carefully weighed and articulated, and the harmonic passages are beautifully executed. I also enjoyed the solo tracks a lot, which bring poetry and release. Simon's musical intelligence and mastery of the instrument can, I am sure, lead him to many paths if he wishes. I really look forward to hearing future projects from this highly gifted musician."

DANS LE CADRE DU FIJM - JEAN-PIERRE ZANELLA PRéSENTE QUATTRO VENTI

A dedicated St-Laurent Cegep teacher, playing jazz and other genres for the last thirty years, saxophonist Jean-Pierre Zanella is a key player on the Quebec jazz scene. In Jean-Pierre ‘s world, nothing is left to chance. On top of some solid harmonic concepts that betray his professionalism and a lot of knowledge, ranging from swing to hard-bop and some modern forms, Jean-Pierre delivers a beautiful message. A bit like Duke Ellington did with Tourist Point of View, inspired by a middle eastern tour, Quattro Venti is an insider’s visit to Italy, a savvy mix of ballads and smart compositions. Without ever taking the easy route, Zanella, like a master silversmith, offers us a work of art worth discovering. Joining JP on stage this evening is Paul Brochu on drums, Pierre François on piano and Rémi-Jean Leblanc on the bass.

DANS LE CADRE DU FIJM - MARC COPLAND MONTREAL TRIO

Marc Copland (born May 29, 1948 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American jazz pianist and composer. Copland became part of the jazz scene in Philadelphia in the early 1960s as a saxophonist, and later moved to New York.   In the early 1970s, while pursuing his own harmonic concept, he grew dissatisfied with what he felt were inherent limitations in the saxophone and moved to the Baltimore-Washington D.C. area, where he remained for a decade to retrain as a jazz pianist.He returned to New York in the mid-1980s, his own keyboard style firmly in place. Since that time Copland has enjoyed considerable success, both as a solo performer and a group leader.   He is generally regarded as a harmonic innovator, and perhaps the leading exponent today of the school of lyrical jazz piano.   Acclaimed recordings include "Night Whispers" (Down Beat Magazine/USA list of best CDs of the decade), "Crosstalk" ("Choc" Jazz Magazine/Fr), and other projects with musicians including musicians and collaborators such as John Abercrombie, Drew Gress, Greg Osby, Gary Peacock, and Bill Stewart.

Their first big opportunity came in 1998. After a successful outdoor show, they were asked by the Montreal International Jazz Festival to open for Ray Charles. The band's opening set got the attention of Montreal critics, and soon after it released the debut album, It's Wonderful. Arioli has received several Juno nominations. Her second album, Pennies from Heaven, was the last recording of jazz pianist Ralph Sutton. Her third album, That's for Me, was produced by John Snyder.
