Swinging with Oscar (Peterson) Remi Bolduc Ensemble Friday May 12th at 7:30
The Rémi Bolduc Jazz Ensemble pays tribute to our very own Oscar Peterson! Born in Montreal in 1925 in the working-class neighbourhood of Little Burgundy, Oscar Peterson became one of the most important pianists in the entire history of jazz. As accompanist to the greatest jazz vocalists of all time, including Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, and as recording artist for the famous Verve Records label, recognition of his talent quickly spread far beyond his hometown.
With his band, the Rémi Bolduc Jazz Ensemble, he composes and plays numbers that convey his formidable energy and spontaneity, allowing his organic sound to breathe freely. A versatile and dynamic artist, Rémi Bolduc performs regularly with some of our most renowned jazz musicians such as Kenny Werner, Ben Monder, Seamus Blake, Lorraine Desmarais, Vic Vogel, Thom Gossage, Ralph Bowen, Jerry Bergonzi and others. Remi is also professor and Area chair at the jazz department at McGill University in Montreal.
Playing that is both intense and under control, breathtaking precision, magnetic stage presence, refreshing original compositions: that’s the formidable package offered by Rémi Bolduc, one of Canada’s best jazz saxophonists.
