7 à 9 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.

CERTIFIED ORGANIC JAZZ QUARTET

With the roots of traditional organ jazz at its core, the Montreal-based Certified Organic Jazz Quartet has evolved into a solid, grooving party band that creates in its listeners an irresistible urge to move to the beat. Integrating the sounds of everything from afrobeat to groovin' soul jazz to Saturday morning cartoons, the band remains true to the Blue Note legacy while adding the personal contemporary twists of toe-tapping original compositions.

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!

FéLIX STüSSI ET LES MALCOMODES

Félix Stüssi a toujours composé dans le vrai sens du mot. Ses mélodies, rythmes, concepts et couleurs lui parviennent de sources d’inspirations très éclectiques. Mais parce qu'il a étudié (maîtrise en ethnomusicologie de l'Université de Zurich en 1997), digéré et incorporé toutes ces influences dans son jeu et son écriture, le résultat est homogène et authentique. La démarche artistique des Malcommodes est simple : à partir de thèmes et de structures concis, les membres du trio partent à l’aventure. La musique est donc hautement dynamique, imprévisible, osée, fragile, cohérente et en même temps imprégnée de couleurs individuelles. Par dessus tout, Les Malcommodes sont des complices rusés, plein d’enthousiasme et d’humour contagieux! Au plaisir de jouer pour vous!

STEVE KUHN, STEVE SWALLOW ET JOEY BARON

Brooklyn-born Steve Kuhn was fascinated with jazz very early in his life. He began classical piano lessons at age five and soon began to improvise and syncopate the classical repertoire. In his early teens, Kuhn studied with legendary teacher Margaret Chaloff who schooled him in the"Russian Technique, "aninvaluable tool for tone production and projection. Chaloff's son, Serge, baritone saxophonist for Woody Herman, hired the 13year-old pianist to playin his group. Throughout his teens Kuhn continued to play in Boston jazz clubs with visiting celebrities; Coleman Hawkins, Chet Baker and Vic Dickenson. After graduation from Harvard College, Kuhn attended the Lenox School of Music where he met and played in a group with fellow-students Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry. The faculty included Bill Evans, George Russell, and Gunther Schuller. Whileat Lenox, Kuhnmet trumpeter Kenny Dorham and began a two-yearstint, interrupted when Kuhn was asked to join John Coltrane's newly-formed quartet. Kuhn next joined Stan Getz's band, which included bassist Scott LaFaro. After a year with Art Farmer, he formed the first Steve Kuhn Trio, with drummer Pete LaRoca and bassist Steve Swallow. At the end of the 1960's he spent four years living in Europe, where his performances had a significant impact upon local players. Upon returning to the United States, Kuhn began his long-term affiliation with ECM, resulting in a string of important albums including Trance, Ecstasy, Non-Fiction and the collaborations with Sheila Jordan; Playground and Last Year's Waltz. Inthemid-80's, Kuhnco-founded the popular 'All StarTrio', with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Al Foster, and launched a new and still evolving edition of his trio with bassist David Finck. Drummers for the latter have included Joey Baron (asonthe ECM recording Remembering Tomorrow),Lewis Nash, Billy Drummond, Kenny Washington and Bill Stewart. In the 90's and up to the present time, he has recorded CDs for Venus, Reservoir and Sunnyside. In 2004, Kuhn recorded Promises Kept which includes a string orchestra for ECM Records. He is most proud of this recording. Kuhn continues to tour widely through out the world, with a strong following in Europe and especially Japan where his CDs frequently appear on the jazz charts. Mostly Coltrane (2009, ECM), with Joe Lovano, David Finck & Joey Baron, was released to great worldwide acclaim. Wisteria, released in 2012 by ECM, is a trio session with Steve Swallow and Joey Baron, and has received excellent notices as well from all quarters. Lloyd Sachs, writing in Jazz Times: “Kuhn’s association with bassist Steve Swallow goes back to the mid-‘60s, when they played together in Art Farmer’s band and then in Kuhn’s trio. And as long as we’re talking history, can we point out that with the exception of Ahmad Jamal, no living jazz pianist of note has thrived in the trio format longer or with greater distinction than Kuhn? This recording marks the first time this trio has played together, and hopefully it won’t be the last.”

Brooklyn-born Steve Kuhn was fascinated with jazz very early in his life. He began classical piano lessons at age five and soon began to improvise and syncopate the classical repertoire. In his early teens, Kuhn studied with legendary teacher Margaret Chaloff who schooled him in the"Russian Technique, "aninvaluable tool for tone production and projection. Chaloff's son, Serge, baritone saxophonist for Woody Herman, hired the 13year-old pianist to playin his group. Throughout his teens Kuhn continued to play in Boston jazz clubs with visiting celebrities; Coleman Hawkins, Chet Baker and Vic Dickenson. After graduation from Harvard College, Kuhn attended the Lenox School of Music where he met and played in a group with fellow-students Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry. The faculty included Bill Evans, George Russell, and Gunther Schuller. Whileat Lenox, Kuhnmet trumpeter Kenny Dorham and began a two-yearstint, interrupted when Kuhn was asked to join John Coltrane's newly-formed quartet. Kuhn next joined Stan Getz's band, which included bassist Scott LaFaro. After a year with Art Farmer, he formed the first Steve Kuhn Trio, with drummer Pete LaRoca and bassist Steve Swallow. At the end of the 1960's he spent four years living in Europe, where his performances had a significant impact upon local players. Upon returning to the United States, Kuhn began his long-term affiliation with ECM, resulting in a string of important albums including Trance, Ecstasy, Non-Fiction and the collaborations with Sheila Jordan; Playground and Last Year's Waltz. Inthemid-80's, Kuhnco-founded the popular 'All StarTrio', with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Al Foster, and launched a new and still evolving edition of his trio with bassist David Finck. Drummers for the latter have included Joey Baron (asonthe ECM recording Remembering Tomorrow),Lewis Nash, Billy Drummond, Kenny Washington and Bill Stewart. In the 90's and up to the present time, he has recorded CDs for Venus, Reservoir and Sunnyside. In 2004, Kuhn recorded Promises Kept which includes a string orchestra for ECM Records. He is most proud of this recording. Kuhn continues to tour widely through out the world, with a strong following in Europe and especially Japan where his CDs frequently appear on the jazz charts. Mostly Coltrane (2009, ECM), with Joe Lovano, David Finck & Joey Baron, was released to great worldwide acclaim. Wisteria, released in 2012 by ECM, is a trio session with Steve Swallow and Joey Baron, and has received excellent notices as well from all quarters. Lloyd Sachs, writing in Jazz Times: “Kuhn’s association with bassist Steve Swallow goes back to the mid-‘60s, when they played together in Art Farmer’s band and then in Kuhn’s trio. And as long as we’re talking history, can we point out that with the exception of Ahmad Jamal, no living jazz pianist of note has thrived in the trio format longer or with greater distinction than Kuhn? This recording marks the first time this trio has played together, and hopefully it won’t be the last.”
