Tune in to CKUT 90.3PM between 3pm and 5pm on Tuesday Nov 10th to hear me guest-host the Montréal Sessions. The show will feature live music, recordings and interviews with some of my favourite musicians.
The first hour of this weeks’ show, on Tuesday November 10th, will feature recordings that have inspired my work the most in the last few months – Bill Dixon, Martha Argerich, Louis Armstrong, Dolly Parton, Tatsuya Nakatani, Cecil Taylor, the Woodshed Orchestra, Amanda Balsys’ The New Matriarchy, and more.
The second hour will feature alto saxophone player Yves Charuest and I playing music and talking together.
Yves has worked on the jazz and new music scene in the 1980-90s with many canadian musicians such as Michel Ratté, Jean Beaudet, Guillaume Dostaler, Lisle Ellis and Jean Derome, in different groups and projects: I Like Jazz, Evidence, Duo Charuest-Ratté, Trio Michel Ratté, Wreck’s Progress, among others. Charuest was also a member of the Peter Kowald Trio (1985-1990) with Louis Moholo and played with William Parker, John Betsch and Mathias Schubert.
More recently, Charuest has been involved on many projects: Duo Charuest-Caloia, Murray Street Band, Ratchet Orchestra, The Disguises, Charuest/Shalabi/Caloia and Four-sided Circle, with Nicolas Caloia, Lori Freedman, John Heward, William Parker, Sam Shalabi, Scott Thomson and Josh Zubot.
