Thomson, Scott: Heures Indues (Bug Incision Records)

Label: Bug Incision Records    
Released in: Canada    


"Montreal-based trombonist Scott Thomson has been at the forefront of Canadian improvised music activities for decades. While based in Toronto, he ran the important Somewhere There performance and workshop space (hosting many great visiting artists like William Parker and Evan Parker over the years), and established himself as a trombonist par excellence via his work with The Rent (a Steve Lacy songbook band), partner Susanna Hood (with whom he more recently issued the excellent The Muted Note), clarinettist Lori Freedman (the two released the staggering Plumb on Barnyard Records in 2007), The Ratchet Orchestra, and guitarist Ken Aldcroft's various ensembles.

Now based in Montreal, this album presents some of the highlights from his series called Trombone Solos At Odd Hours, which perfectly describes what he did at the La Poele studio & performance space during January and February of 2015. Sometimes an audience member or two was present, but it was mostly just Thomson committing himself to these performances on a regular basis, exploring his instrument at length. A generous offering from a virtuoso player, and a highlight of the Bug Incision catalogue."-Bug Incision



Biography for: Scott Thomson

"Scott Thomson is a trombonist and composer who lives in Montréal, having moved from Toronto in 2010. He plays in established groups in many styles, and prizes ad hoc improvising as a way to meet many creative people. He has studied with Roswell Rudd, Jean Derome, Eddie Prévost, and John Oswald. Scott is one of the founders of the Association of Improvising Musicians in Toronto (AIMToronto), and co-directs the AIMToronto Orchestra, which was formed for a project with Anthony Braxton in September 2007. While in Toronto, Scott was the artistic director of Somewhere There, a venue for live creative music that he founded in 2007. Scott has composed a series of site-specific pieces that he calls 'cartographic compositions' for mobile musicians and audiences in unconventional performance contexts, including works for the galleries and corridors of the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario."-Bug Incision (http://www.bugincision.com/events-2014.html)
