Trio Derome Guilbeault Tanguay: Wow! (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    


"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



"Jean Derome. Born Montréal, Québec, 1955. esidence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (saxophones (alto, baritone, soprano), flutes (flute, bass flute, piccolo, alto flute, recorders), keyboards, small wind instruments (ocarinas, jew's harp, game calls, toys...), percussion, invented instruments, voice)

One of the most active and eclectic musicians on the Canadian creative music scene, Jean Derome has managed to earn the recognition of a larger public, a rare feat in that field. Thanks to his large-scale musique actuelle projects, his compositions, his work as an improviser, his jazz groups and his music for the screen and the stage, Derome ranks as a major creative force, in Québec and abroad. He is experienced and innovative on both saxophone and flute, and his unique writing style cannot be mistaken for anyone else's. Sensitive and powerful, his music often features a funny strike that makes its complex nature more inviting.

Ever since Nébu (one of Québec's first avant-garde jazz groups) in the early '70s, Derome has been consistently renewing and diversifying his approach of composition. He impressed audience and critics first with the flute, then with the saxophone, as a lead character in the musique actuelle underground. He took part to the various artists' collectives looking for new ways to express themselves freely, without esthetic or social constraints, including the Ensemble de musique improvisée de Montréal. Later, in the early '80s, he co-founded Ambiances Magnétiques, a collective and record label that raised his profile at home and introduced his name to the outside world. Among his numerous projects, let us mention the duos Les Granules, Nous perçons les oreilles and Plinc! Plonc!, the dynamic group Jean Derome et les Dangereux Zhoms, and the large-scale projects Confitures de gagaku, Je me souviens - Hommage à Georges Perec and Canot-camping. Most of these projects are based on a unique form of synergy between composition, structured improvisation and genuine creative madness, all this articulated with unmatched playfulness. In 1992, Derome became the second artist to be presented with the Freddie Stone Award (bassist Lisle Ellis was the first).

Besides improvising on a regular basis with Ambiances Magnétiques' members and appearing in their projects, Derome has also shared the stage with several musicians of international stature, among others Fred Frith, Lars Hollmer, Louis Sclavis and Han Bennink. He performs regularly all over Canada, in the US and in Europe. He received a Prix Opus in 2001 for his exposure abroad.

Lately, jazz circles have been praising his undisputable qualities as a jazzman, thanks to the Thelonious Monk tribute project Évidence, the Normand Guilbeault Ensemble (whose Mingus Erectus CD is devoted to Charles Mingus' music), and the much-lauded Derome Guilbeault Tanguay Trio.

Although Jean Derome writes tirelessly for his own projects, he is much in demand in the fields of film, theatre and dance. A short list of this side of his work would have to include his numerous scores for the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), especially for films by John Walker, Jacques Leduc, Fernand Bélanger and animated films by Pierre Hébert, Michèle Cournoyer and Jean Detheux; his incidental music for Théâtre UBU, Théâtre de Quat'Sous and Théâtre du Nouveau Monde; not forgetting his work with several top choreographers, including Louise Bédard, Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood, Daniel Soulières and Ginette Laurin. Other music ensembles have commissioned works from him, including Tuyo, Bradyworks, the Hard Rubber Orchestra from Vancouver and Fanfare Pourpour. Incidentally, Derome is the musical director of the latter.

Over thirty years of music and 70 record credits later, Jean Derome still has sleeves bursting with tricks."
