Aaron Shragge & Innocent When You Dream CD Launh

Innocent When You Dream brings a new element to Waits' music while remaining true to its essence. The quintet interprets Waits' stylistically diverse repertoire by creating instrumental versions of his most memorable songs. Using lyrical content and mood as the starting point for exploration, the band moves beyond the realm of covers creating a distinctive sound that draws from Jazz, rock, blues, World music and the avant-garde. The quintet regularly performs in NY area, LA and has been featured at notable Jazz clubs: The B-Flat (Berlin), Upstairs (Montreal) and The Rex (Toronto). Their first record Celebrating The Music of Tom Waits was release on Jazz Collective Records (2010) and their second recording Dirt In The Ground will be available May 2017.

Joshua Rager Quartet Plays the music of Cedar Walton

The music of Cedar Walton spans many historic decades. From Art Blakey, and Billy Higgins to Eastern Rebellion, Walton contributed compositions considered today to be modern jazz classics. Up until the year of his death in 2013, Walton was a stalwart performer as both a bandleader and sideman. The music featured this evening will be some of his classics as well as little known gems.

Liberté Big Band

Led by Liberté-Anne Lymberiou, this modern, multi-generational big band plays original compositions by Lymberiou. As it’s name would indicate, the band’s broad mission is to constantly perform new works while maintaining the all-encompassing creativity and communality of the jazz tradition. You’ll hear pieces ranging from Afro-Latin to free-jazz, bebop to funk, and lots more that even the bandleader has yet to anticipate. Greatly influenced by Charles Mingus, Lymberiou captures the spontaneity and unpredictability of jazz through extended compositions. The moods of the music swing as much as the rhythms do, and inevitably move her audiences, both inside and out. It’s fair to say that Lymberiou has proved herself well, as four-time Grammy award-winning pianist, composer and founder of the NYC Afro Latin Jazz Alliance, Arturo O’ Farrill proclaimed that: Liberté-Anne is the real deal. She exudes creativity, chance taking and originality. Her voice as a composer is unique and must be heard. She is one bad Mama Jama! Lymberiou spent nearly 5 years in New York City, where she formed the big band. However, in a strange and unfortunate turn of events, after paying a quick visit back to family in Montreal, she was forced by US immigration laws to remain in her native land. Having said this, the bandleader has managed to find a silver lining in this shocking and absurd situation, and is now taking up the challenge to build a Montreal edition of the Liberté Big Band, which you will hear on this date.

Pinkno Hana & Nomad

PINKNO HANA A rhythm comes from the silence. The voice and bodies follow it. The words are drawn in the air. Ben and Marialuisa, two musicians, drummer and singer, based in two different parts of the world, met two years ago in Berlin where they formed Pinkno Hana. Having recently played shows in Berlin and Italy, they are ready for their first show in Canada. NOMAD Nomad is a Montreal-based band of six imaginative and talented musicians hailing from all over North America. The group's music telepathically weaves in-and-out of crisp structure, improvisational jungles and lyrical melody in a sublime mixture of jazz, rock and free improvisation.

Kite Trio presents Slightly Higher in Canada

With “Slightly Higher in Canada” Kite Trio takes another step away from familiar jazz touchstones and embraces its defiantly weird, idiosyncratic, and authentic creative voice. Produced by Dave King (of The Bad Plus), it sees the band pursuing its unusual approach with the kind of relentless energy you’d expect from a jazz trio recording an album under the hilarious, watchful eye of a creative giant like Dave. Recorded entirely live with no edits or overdubs, they take on emotionally and rhythmically complex music with a gutsy, intuitive approach which is unmistakably “Kite”. The result is an unpredictable, messy, and rewarding album that goes places you could only expect from a band that’s been unrelentingly pursuing its group sound for almost ten years. Its eleven original compositions and one cover (“Milkman” by experimental rock band “Deerhoof”), chart a lot of territory. From challenging, intricately composed counterpoint to minimal, gestural improvisations, the music is alternately surreal, sentimental, subversive, ambitious, ambiguous… sometimes downright alien, but never alienating. Kite clearly relishes occupying this unusual territory and “Slightly Higher in Canada” captures their delight and enthusiasm perfectly, all with a raw, unpredictable aesthetic for which producer Dave King no doubt bears some responsibility.

The rhythm section has been playing regularly with renowned trumpeter Jason Palmer's group in Boston for several years, and while many of the songs are in the rock/pop idiom, improvisation still pays a crucial role in the record.

Kaufmann/Lillinger/Landfermann : grünen

The Berlin-based trio grünen (“the greening”) was formed in 2009. Their first – completely improvised – encounter was recorded and subsequently released by Clean Feed Records. For their second disc, the trio mixed spontaneous improv with some predetermined structures – taking new turns with written material, some of it rhythmically quite intricate and/or evoking images of surrealistic jazz and song: a strategy the three have adopted for their highly unpredictable concert performances as well. On the occasion of Achim Kaufmann's receiving the Albert Mangelsdorff award, grünen performed at the Berlin Jazz Fest in November 2015. “They create something new with a ‘traditional’ piano trio, with a high level of musicality and creativity. These three artists do not play music, they are music.” Stef Gijssels – Free Jazz Blog

Otterville is Andrew Downing’s foray into the complex simplicity of his ancestral Tobacco Belt lineage. The music is nostalgic, evocative, peaceful and humourous, finding influence from Kurt Weill, Billy Strayhorn, Erik Satie and Bill Frisell. The magical layering of lap steel guitar, vibraphone, cello, saxophone, bass and drums creates the backdrop for the subtleness of the music to quietly squeeze the listener into emotional submission. The group’s debut double CD, simply called Otterville, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim.
