11 à 15 JAZZ BRUNCH AVEC LE DIXIEBAND QUARTET

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.

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!

Robin wowed audiences this summer by playing SoftWing across Canada by train from coast to coast. Robin received special thanks for her production input on the 2014 Grammy Award winning album, Throw a Penny in The Wishing Well by Jennifer Gasoi and cowrote There is a Garden, a documentary on Iran with award winning filmmaker, Masoud Raouf that premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival ,2014.

In Bahia Brazil, Robin worked with some of the most celebrated musicians like Gerónimo Montserrat and the spectacular Orkestro Rumpilezz (Who tour with Lenine, Gilberto Gil and Joshua Redman). Whether it is the spirit journey of Noah’s Arms or Robin’ s nod to the Philadelphia Sweet Soul
Sound in Till We Try, or the Capoeira style circle dance of Cheguei Lá or the Afro Caribbean- Doo-Wap of New Rocksteady , this album takes us on the path of searching, visioning, protest, surrendering, awakening and transformation. SoftWing, as Robin explains it means; “The wings that take flight from the revolution within”. “I want this music to awaken people to who they are in their own deepest desire for connection to the source. Then meaningful change can happen.”

ANNIE POULAIN TRIO

Annie fait partie de ces artistes discrets, mais connaissant néanmoins une carrière des plus florissantes. Roulant sa bosse depuis les années 2000, la chanteuse décide alors de se spécialiser dans l’écriture et l’arrangement de pièces jazz en français. On la verra notamment sur les scènes du Festival de Jazz de Québec, Festival International de Jazz de Rimouski, Festival de Jazz de Lévis, Festival International d’été de Québec, SunFest de London en Ontario, Festival de Jazz de Port-au-Prince en Haïti et en première partie de Luc de Larochellière à Paris. Avec deux albums à son crédit Jazzons Québec et Saoulée à l’autre (nomination à l’ADISQ en 2010) dont elle a assumé plusieurs étapes, de la composition à la réalisation en passant par les arrangements, Annie s’est taillée une place de choix sur les ondes d’Espace Musique vendant ainsi plus de 4 500 albums. Elle a également pris part à Hommage à Sylvain Lelièvre, livrant ainsi de nombreux concerts: Maison de la culture Maisonneuve (dans le cadre de Coup de cœur francophone), Maison de la culture Côte-des-Neiges, Maison de la culture Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie. Plus récemment, la compagnie montréalaise Effendi lançait un album intitulé TRIADES sur lequel Annie signe quatre textes et en interprète davantage en compagnie de Charles Biddle Jr. et de Sonia Johnson. Ce projet collectif lui a aussi notamment valu deux nominations à l'ADISQ 2013 et au JUNO Awards 2014. Depuis quelques mois, Annie Poulain (également claviériste) performe de tout son art à l’intérieur du groupe musical autochtone Kawandak où les musiques traditionnelles et spirituelles métissées de blues, de rock et de jazz prennent un sentier inédit, hors du commun.

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!

6 à 8 AVEC NOMAD O SWING

Michel St-Pierre and Lise-Anne Ross form a very dynamic and explosive guitar duo. Fueled by their mutual passion for Django Reinhardt's music, they decided many years ago to get together with Claude Kaufman on saxophone and Daniel Labrosse on upright bass to bring this music and culture to the masses. Their repertoire touches 30's & 40's Swing Jazz, bossa novas, ballades and even a few Édith Piaf waltzes, all done in the manouche style.

SOIRéE SPéCIALE DU JOUR DE LAN AVEC 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.
