11 à 15 BRUNCH AVEC LE DIXIEBAND

Since 1980, Le Dixieband has been bringing bright new shadings, vitality and intensity to the redhot strains and the hard-driving rhythms of traditional New Orleans jazz.

Le Dixieband has won a reputation for the musical quality and liveliness of its arrangements, for a crowd-pleasing style that blends humor with verve, for its drive and dapper period costumes. Its three CDs pay scintillating tribute to the music of the twenties, infectious music that sets toes tapping and brings smiles to faces everywhere: the sound people love to discover... and rediscover.

KIM RICHARDSON QUARTET - SOIRéE SPéCIALE DE LA ST-VALENTIN

With her undeniable voice and talent, it’s no surprise that critics have hailed Kim Richardson since she first appeared on the Canadian music scene. At just 14, she was already singing in clubs and taking her first steps in the theatre. Gifted with an enchanting voice, she won two Juno Awards for her debut singles in 1986 and 1987, adding a third trophy to her collection as part of the group The Merlin Factor in 1994. At ease in all musical styles, she has shared the stage with Barry White, Stevie Wonder and Celine Dion. She gave free rein to her love of blues and soul on her debut solo album Kaleidoscope (2006), co-produced with Nanette Workman. Richardson made her silver screen debut in Funkytown and proved she was equally adept in two languages with her first album in French, Mes amours, featuring covers of artists from Gilbert Bécaud to Jean-Pierre Ferland.

6 à 8 AVEC NOMAD O SWING

Passionnés de Django Reinhardt et de ses contemporains, Michel St-Pierre et Jonathan Charbonneau forment un duo explosif. En compagnie de Claude Kaufman au saxophone et de Daniel Labrosse à la contrebasse, l'énergie qu'ils déploient ainsi que leur symbiose sur scène ne laisse personne indifférent. Leur répertoire touche le jazz swing des années 30-40, des bossa novas, des ballades et même des valses de Piaf reprises à la manouche.

YANNICK RIEU QUARTET

Composer and tenor saxophonist Yannick Rieu is one of the finest musicians - in any genre of music - to have emerged from Québec, and one who’s also enjoyed an international career for many years, particularly in France. 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. Since then, he’s been collecting rave reviews in jazz publications in the U.S., France and Canada for his recordings and his live performances.

11 à 15 BRUNCH AVEC LE DIXIEBAND

Since 1980, Le Dixieband has been bringing bright new shadings, vitality and intensity to the redhot strains and the hard-driving rhythms of traditional New Orleans jazz. Its dynamic, seasoned musicians have set themselves apart from similar groups by their one-of-a-kind mastery of a unique repertoire performed in the purest down-home style. Le Dixieband has won a reputation for the musical quality and liveliness of its arrangements, for a crowd-pleasing style that blends humor with verve, for its drive and dapper period costumes. Its three CDs pay scintillating tribute to the music of the twenties, infectious music that sets toes tapping and brings smiles to faces everywhere: the sound people love to discover... and rediscover.
