descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Finally, Pierre Labbe's back on CD, six years after Risque et pendule. From the sextet line-up featured on that first Ambiances Magnetiques opus, released as Ensemble Pierre Labbe, the sax/flute player only retained the services of guitarist Bernard Falaise (Miriodor, Klaxon Gueule, Les Projectionnistes). Bassist Clinton Ryder and drummer Isaiah Ceccarelli round up the group. On Manivelle [Crank], the quartet waltzes, turns, and tears up through nine Labbe originals. Though firmly anchored in jazz, his compositions shake free from jazz's diktats. In turn rock-in-opposition, musique actuelle, Arabic elements, fusion, hard-bop, free, and savagely rock, Labbe's music absorbs, synthesizes, and remaps all those influences. Ample themes are spread around, interspersed with large stretches of collective exploration, a fertile ground for these four sonic adventurers. "For many years now, I have been trying to make music both organic and spiritual. Music that transpires and inspires, music that grooves, whispers, and moves you. Atypical jazz feeding on opposites, a resolutely plural form of jazz," Labbe writes. You will easily notice the stunning guitar flights, the uncanny creativity of the drumming, the robust bass playing, and the lyrical phrasing of the saxophone. Yet, Labbe's melodies - at times sweet, at times jagged - might be what you'll remember best, as they bear the quality seal of a unique hybrid form of writing both closely related to his previous projects (Papa Boa, Les Projectionnistes, Ensemble Pierre Labbe) and reinvented by a gust of free jazz inspiration. The crank is turning indeed, synergistically."-François Couture


Artist Biographies:

"Sax/flute player and composer Pierre Labbé is gifted with a tirelessly inquisitive mind. He has made various forays into jazz and musique actuelle with Les Projectionnistes, L'Orkestre des Pas Perdus, Papa Boa, and Pierre Labbé Quartet. He has performed many times in several jazz and creative music festivals in Canada, the US, Mexico, and Morocco. He has released close to ten CDs. Always on the move, Labbé plays, improvises, blows, sings, composes, creates, and makes sounds for dance and theatre. He has produced incidental music for over 20 productions (Pacamambo by Wajdi Mouawad, best youth production, 2002; Les âmes sœurs by Serge Marois; Âme, a choreography by Benjamin Hatcher). The Quasar saxophone quartet commissioned him for a piece (Bocal, culasse et pavillon) premiered in 2008. For its 10th edition, the OFF Montréal Jazz Festival commissioned him for a large-scale work, Tremblement de fer, for 50 musicians, premiered in June 2009.

Labbé is the artistic director of the youth arts company Sacré Tympan. He has written and produced Pierre et le pou, a performance that blends music with storytelling and theatre of objects. The company will be touring Montréal's Maisons de la Culture in 2009-2010. Since 1996, he has been traveling across Québec with his Contes du vent, a performance concert for young audiences. In concert, on record or while performing, Labbé is a singular artist that navigates from project to project, like a momentum catcher. His boldness and versatility as a composer and improviser are what sets him apart."

"Isaiah Ceccarelli. Born Chetwynd, British Columbia, Canada, 1978. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (drum set, percussion).

Isaiah Ceccarelli is a drummer, improviser, and composer based in Montréal. His music has been qualified as "one of the most original approaches to come through our offices in recent times" (Marc Chénard, La Scena Musicale) and he has been described as possessing "a writing style with rare personality in this musical context" (Thierry Lepin, Jazzman Magazine). He participates in numerous creative music projects with Michel F Côté, Pierre-Yves Martel, Lori Freedman, Jean Derome, Bernard Falaise, Joshua Zubot and Philippe Lauzier, amongst others. He plays with Félix Stüssi and Ray Anderson, as well as with the Acadian singer Marie-Jo Thério. Proud ambassador of a new generation of creative musicians in Québec, his collaborations have led him on tour in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. Isaiah has composed music for two of his own albums, Bréviaire d'épuisements and Lieux-dits (both on the Ambiances Magnétiques label), and for ensembles and musicians such as Quatuor Bozzini, Ensemble Allogène, the violist Jennifer Thiessen, and Ensemble Kô. He sings with the Schola Saint-Grégoire (Gregorian chant).

A seasoned musician and composer, Isaiah Ceccarelli is, in the words of Charles Collard from La Scena Musicale, "a jewel in the crown of the Montréal scene and his presence is felt on several fronts at the same time."

"Bernard Falaise. Born Montréal, Québec, 1965. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (guitar).

Bernard Falaise was born in Montréal, where he currently lives. He plays electric guitar, composes and improvises - all with evident joy - for Miriodor, Klaxon Gueule, les Projectionnistes, Diesel and other groups. He has written for the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal (ECM), Quartango and the Isis Quartet, and has created music for exhibitions, television, the theatre and dance. Allergic to labels, Falaise explores acid rock, twelve-tone waltzes and industrial tangos with equal enthusiasm."
