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.

JAM SESSION ANIMé PAR ALEX BELLEGARDE

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!

JOWEE OMICIL QUARTET - LANCEMENT DE SON 3E ALBUM : «NAKED»

Jowee Omicil Joseph Omicil Jr. "Jowee O" was born in Montreal, Canada, of Haitian descent. He began playing the alto saxophone at the age of 15 as part of the music ministry in his father's church. Just three short years following his introduction to the alto, Jowee was accepted at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston where he majored in music education. There he added the soprano sax to his arsenal. He shared the stage with many like Branford Marsalis, Richard Bona, Mike Stern, Marcus Miller, Pharoah Sanders, Jeff Tain Watts, Wyclef Jean, and Marlon Saunders to name a few. He devoted many hours helping young people as a tutor and mentor for their musical growth. He later went on to further his education as he entered the Thelonius Monk Institute among the 20 "hand­picked" around the US and was featured on BET Jazz. His 2014 release of "NAKED" has garnered Omicil deserving accolades and expanded his international audience.  "This young man is a very talented and gifted musician, always in the lab working on his songs and practicing his instrument. He is a person we will be hearing in the future. Keep your ears and eyes open." ­Kenny Garrett

During his university studies, Benoit earned his living by playing with the best jazzmen of Montreal. In 1991, he wrote the score for the NFB’s documentary Montreal Retro. Since then, he has composed about twenty soundtracks, notably The Triplettes de Belleville for which he won the César of the Best Film Music and a nomination for the Academy Award Best Song. Benoit has also composed music for the television, the theatre and publicity agencies. Recently, he wrote the soundtrack for Cordell Barker’s comedy Runaway, , Ryan Redford’s Oliver Sherman and Denis Villeneuve’s controversial film Polytechnique. He won a Jutra award for the music of Louis Bélanger’s Route 132 and worked on Martin Villeneuve’s film Mars & Avril.

6 à 8 AVEC LE TRIO BBQ

Le Trio BBQ was co-founded in the spring of 2004 by Jean-Michel Bérubé and Mathieu Beaudet. First inspired by the late Django Reinhardt, “Bérubé-Beaudet Gypsy Guitar Duet” soon became the official BBQ Trio due to this fortunate pair-up with bassist Vincent Quirion! Le Trio BBQ launched a first album entitled Cinémanouche in 2008. On this first instrumental effort, (with the exception of two songs with vocals), the band added a little extra taste to the gypsy jazz repertoire by giving new flavours to TV themes “The Simpsons“ and classics from the screen “Harry Potter”, “Jaws”, “E.T.”)… Since 2006, the band is mainly performing as a quartet with singer Katerine Desrochers. Proclaimed “coup de coeur” at the 2006 FGMAT* festival, the band has been touring every summer ever since in France, Belgium and Québec. Le Trio BBQ onstage is all about virtuosity, velocity, charm and contagious laughter. The Trio’s live shows attract people of all ages, sexes and backgrounds. Within two years, the band made quite an impression performing in many festivals alongside international artists. The band’s talent was rewarded in 2009 by the CCL* (Conseil de la Culture des Laurentides) who honored them with the Musical Revelation of the Year award. Currently recording their second but first all-original album with Katerine, Le Trio BBQ is mustering a collection of new songs mixed with instrumental pieces such as the world famous “Guillaume Tell” overture. The release of this new record entitled Sur la route des épices is due November 12th 2013 in Montreal.  As its name says, the 11 songs CD brings you «on the spice trade silkroad» going from Klezmer to classical music, tangos to bossa novas…  Along the way, valuable special guests joined in for the ride. The likes of percussionist Véronique Boucher, accordionist Didier Dumoutier and the cymbalum virtuoso Alexandru Sura appear on a few compositions.

Pushed by his profound desire to become a musician, he persues his musical studies at Cégep Saint-Laurent with Jean-Pierre Zanella. It is during this period that he discovers his passion for jazz and joins the Montreal All City Big Band as lead alto. He will play in the group from 2006 to 2010 which gave him the opportunity amongst other things, to participate in the recording of the album Lulu Hughes & The Montreal All City Big Band. Benjamin went to McGill University to further his understanding and enlarge his musical horizons. It is while playing lead alto in the Jazz Orchestra 1 under the direction of Gordon Foote that he had the chance to meet many internationaly renowned invited artists such as Phil Dwyer, Jim McNeely, Ben Monder, Joe Lovano, Barry Ries and Slide Hampton. The young musician stands out by his ability to interpret many musical styles and his versatility in his ability to play flute, clarinet and all the saxophones. Vary active on the Montreal music scene, Benjamin starts up in January 2010 the Atomic Bigb Band by calling on the new generation elite of Montreal. He also directed the Montreal All City Big Band during the 2012 winter session, the same year that he he received his Bachelor in jazz interpretation. A bit later, he flies to France to participate in the McGill Jazz Orchestra 1 tour. In 2013, he joins Jacques Kuba Séguin’s group the Odd Lot for a tour in Poland. The year 2013 also marks the birth of the Benjamin Deschamps Quartet. The band quickly got noticed since on September 1st it won the Rimouski Festi Jazz Grand Prix.

JAM SESSION ANIMé PAR ALEX BELLEGARDE

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!
