The 2012 edition of this pop­u­lar event will show­case the work of seven Eastern Town­ships’ artists and ar­ti­sans. The pub­lic is cor­dially in­vited to meet the artists dur­ing the

Cen­ten­ni­alThe­atre launches the 2012-2013 Jazz Se­ries with renowned French trum­pet player Erik Truf­faz on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 24th at 8pm. Ac­com­pa­nied by his quar­tet in­clud­ing Benoît Cor­boz on key­boards (Ham­mond, Fender Rhodes, pi­ano), Mar­cello Gi­u­liani on bass and dou­ble bass as well as Marc Er­betta on drums, Truf­faz will per­form mu­sic from his 10th record­ing révolu­cion due out on Oc­to­ber 29 on the Blue Note la­bel.

El tiempo de la révolu­cion, the quar­tet’s lat­est record­ing is a nat­u­ral fol­low up to as if it were a sec­ond chap­ter in a jour­ney which be­gan in 2010. As time and con­certs went on, the mu­sic took root, the over­all sound ex­panded to reach a cer­tain den­sity. The mu­sic for this cd was com­posed es­sen­tially in the stu­dio. A col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort built on sug­ges­tions, de­con­struc­tions, re­con­struc­tions. From this, a daily cre­ation aroses from this slow and lengthy in­tro­spec­tion.

the ti­tle track is an in­ter­pre­ta­tion of his last record­ing

and is one of the rare com­po­si­tions cre­ated be­fore en­ter­ing the stu­dio. Of it, Truf­faz says : « the dif­fer­ence in form be­tween those two tracks ex­press the rich­ness of the quar­tet’s work, its ca­pac­ity to es­pouse op­pos­ing forces. We pro­duced Part B on a tour in Is­tan­bul, Is­tan­bul Tango was born on the day we re­turned from this beloved city. »

In 1990 he formed a jazz band called Orange and the fol­low­ing year won France’s pres­ti­gious jazz award, the Prix Spe­cial. As a leader of his self-named group, Truf­faz recorded his first al­bum Nina Va­le­ria and ap­peared on stages throughout Europe, in­clud­ing the Mon­treux Jazz Fes­ti­val.

Sub­scrip­tion to the jazz se­ries are still avail­able un­til Wed­nes­day and fea­tures Quebec pi­anist Yves Léveillé in a trio for­ma­tion with Eri Ya­mamoto (pi­ano) and Paul McCand­less (multi wind in­stru­men­tal­ist) ; pi­anist Mar­i­anne Trudel and her septet ; Montreal’s Alain Bé­dard and the Au­guste Quar­tet; and Spirit ’20, an ensem­ble of

Cen­ten­ni­alThe­atre wel­comes en­er­getic and charm­ing boo­gie woo­gie pi­anist Michael Kae­sham­mer for his fourth visit to the Bishop’s Univer­sity venue. He is cur­rently pro­mot­ing the re­cently re­leased cd/dvd KAE­SHAM­MER LIVE! MICHAEL KAE­SHAM­MER has been called Canada’s triple-threat combo of pi­ano vir­tu­os­ity, vo­cal abil­ity and charisma. This po­tent com­bi­na­tion has earned the Toronto based artist in­ter­na­tional crit­i­cal ac­claim and a loyal and grow­ing fan base. Kae­sham­mer’s per­for­mances are pure de­light and his en­ergy knows no bounds. He has pi­ano tech­nique to burn and to his au­di­ence’s de­light has an ac­ro­batic way with a grand pi­ano. When Kae­sham­mer per­forms, it’s ob­vi­ous he’s hav­ing a ball, play­ing su­perla­tive boo­gie-woo­gie, blues, jazz, and pop cross-over ma­te­rial, drawn mostly from an im­pres­sive list of stan­dards and his cat­a­logue of stu­dio record­ings.

A re­viewer of his last per­for­mance at the Tan­gle­wood Jazz Fes­ti­val noted: “draw­ing on a rock solid knowl­edge of the early pi­ano greats, Kae­sham­mer does more than play the way they did. He en­ter­tains with a cap­i­tal “E” the way they did… he taps into a part of mu­sic that’s al­most lost, con­nect­ing deeply with the au­di­ence on a gut level, so they are no longer just spec­ta­tors in the mu­sic-mak­ing.”

Nightly, Kae­sham­mer and his band have the crowd eat­ing out of the palm of their hands and never do they leave with any­thing short of a stand­ing ova­tion.

Michael Kae­sham­mer pre­vi­ously per­formed at Cen­ten­nial The­atre as a solo artist in 03-04, shared the bill with Harry Manx in 06-07 and col­lab­o­rated with Jill Bar­ber in 10-11.
