Pascal Tremblay Pascal Tremblay

Pascal Tremblay knows the use of sensuality, elegance and delicacy; he reveals a profound knowledge of acoustic jazz, within the boundaries of his own composing and improvisation or interpretation. His experience grows up from the age of fifteen by playing every weekend. He attends college at Vanier then goes on to play in the Carabeans and throughout Europe where he starts to write his own music. He helps maintain jazz in the Laurentians and around Saint- Jerome by playing in many clubs for years. First a saxophone player, he also records and plays with diverse artists like Gilles Vigneault and Gary Boudreault as a bass player; just like with La Corde de Bois, a band that he co-founded. A pillar of the jazz scene in the laurentiens, his project named jazz faction earned him to be chosen to represent Canada at the 2005 Aïchi International Exposition, in Japan. It also got him to be nominated at the Grand Prix General Motors in the 2006 Montreal International Jazz Festival as well as in the Galaxie contest. Jazz Faction has been selected to represented Canadian culture during UNESCO summit, Ottawa 2007. LUEURS, Jazz Faction’s third project, is enhanced by a string quartet and specifically illustrates the bond between impressionist era compositions and modern jazz.

-Alain Brunet / Radio-Canada

«A jazz quartet with a classical string quartet interpreting original compositions but also an audacious vision of known classical standards (Rachmaninov, Fauré, Debussy, Poulenc) with an inspiration that puts this project miles ahead other attempts often too tacky

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
