descriptions, reviews, &c.

"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


Artist Biographies:

"Scott Thomson is an improvising trombonist and composer. He works extensively with singer and dance artist, Susanna Hood, and writes songs for her based on published authors" texts to be played in many contexts, from duo to octet and sometimes including Susanna" s choreography. Monicker (with Arthur Bull and Roger Turner), for example, exemplifies Scott" s commitment to open improvisation. He co-founded the Association of Improvising Musicians Toronto (AIMToronto) in 2004 and served as a director until 2009, and co- directed the AIMToronto Orchestra, formed for a project with Anthony Braxton in 2007. In 2016, he convened the Montreal-Toronto Art Orchestra to play Roscoe Mitchell" s music. He founded Somewhere There, a Toronto creative music venue that hosted 850 concerts during his tenure, 2007-10. Scott has composed a series of site- specific works, "cartographic compositions" for mobile musicians and audiences in unconventional performance contexts including, notably, the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario. Scott programs the Guelph Jazz Festival."
