JIM DOXAS TRIO

Very much in demand, Montreal drummer Jim Doxas divides his time playing in many different groups. Through the power of his startling invention, he makes the case that percussion can be as performative as a lyrical instrument. What distinguishes Doxas’ approach to improvisation is that he refuses to play it safe, allowing the moment to dictate the kind of framework that will contain, shape and guide the piece under consideration. He is astutely committed to the belief that significant music is always distinguished by what is left unsaid, the gaps of which inspire him to produce a highly original vocabulary of accents.

She performed on stage with renowned jazz artists from Quebec, and more recently shared a double bill with Diane Tell at Festival Pully-Lavaux in Switzerland, and with Cyrille Aimée at the Festival de jazz de Québec. She gained recognition with her projects like the well mastered Le Carré de nos amours, 2012 Juno Winner for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year, or the collective Triades—with singers Annie Poulain and Charles Biddle Jr. nominated at the Junos and ADISQ in 2014. An inspired creator, she’s now proposing to uplift our spirit with “Le cœur à l’endroit” a vibrant opus of sincerity and harmony, and a subtle balm for souls in search of serenity or hope… and for all those who enjoy jazz softly-crooned in French! For this « Artist of the month » residency, she will share a different songbook every thursday night.

It’s all about that bass - Vocal repertoire composed by bassists like Mingus, Charlie Haden or Ray Brown avec Sonia Johnson - vocal / Normand Deveault - piano / Normand Guilbeault - doublebass / Claude Lavergne - drums

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.
