sample the album:
"After their first eponymous record featuring 10 compositions of Jean Derome, The Feeling of Jazz, a journey through the whole history of jazz; the dvd-only Etymologie, a live recording of the band's appearance at Montréal's OFF Festival de Jazz; and their fourth's effort, Danse à l'Anvers, finally here's Wow!. It features three originals by Derome - "La Danse de Raphaelle", "Mes enfants: and "Palestine" - and four standards: "The Best Things in Life Are Free", a 1927 song penned by Ray Henderson; "Wow" and "Dreams", both written by be-bop pioneer Lennie Tristano; and "The Baron", a composition by modern jazz giant Eric Dolphy, originally dedicated to the great Charles Mingus.
The Trio is formed of Jean Derome on saxophones and flutes, Normand Guilbeault on doublebass and Pierre Tanguay on drums. These three musicians enjoy a strong reputation on the Montréal music scene and even though they are mostly known as new music and jazz musicians, they are often spotted accompanying our best singers-songwriters, poets, filmmakers, choreographers, etc. Already active for almost a decade, the Derome Guilbeault Tanguay Trio has presented many repertoires in the past: tributes to Billy Strayhorn and Charles Mingus; an excursion into the Swing repertoire of the '30s and '40s, with renditions of tunes by Johnny Hodges, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, etc.; and more recently serious forays into the music of Eric Dolphy, Sonny Clark, Misha Mengelberg, Roland Kirk, Lee Konitz and Lennie Tristano. The Trio has also played concerts entirely devoted to Jean Derome's music (particularly as part of his April 2000 Exposition de Musique at the Théâtre La Chapelle). A growing, faithful audience follows the Trio everywhere it performs and the concerts attract an impressive number of young jazz musicians."-Ambiances Magnetiques
