Repetitions, versions... 2 ad hoc performances

Everything is new, and some things never get old, and nothing is new under the sun...

A few days ago I had the pleasure of playing 2 sets of Ornette Coleman's music with a quartet including Jean Derome. Jean is among two or three people I play with regularly who always and absolutely brings it each time he performs. Jean doesn't let the fire go out on stage, and I am lucky to have 2 more opportunities to share the fire with him soon. The rooms we are playing in are special too: over and over new breath blowing on the coals to bring the flames up!!

1 Octobre: 
Jean Derome (alto sax), Ellwood Epps (trompette), Scott Thomson (trombone)
Mardi Spaghetti @ Le Cagibi, 5490 St-Laurent
9pm, $5+ contribution suggested

9 octobre:
Jean Derome (alto sax), Ellwood Epps (trompette), Scott Thomson (trombone), Martin Tétreault (turntables)
2 sets!
Mercredi Music @ Casa Obscura, 4381 Papineau

If you don't know Jean Derome's music, these are great chances to discover it. I hope you can be there to be part of the energy.
