Pascal Tremblay Jazz Faction - RACOLAGES A new CD of original music where the emotion in each track hooks the jazzlover in you. The syntheses of a well accomplished and sensitive jazzman. Still undiscovered by most of the Jazz enthusiasts, this tenor saxophonist knows the use of sensuality, elegance and delicacy; It was a few years ago that this project, Jazz faction, saw the light of day; and after a first critically acclaimed recording, they were selected to represent Canada at Expo 2005, Aïchi (Japan). The quality of this band relies not only on the limpidity of the proposed musical structures, but also on the great complicity established by the leader between the drummer Jean-François Barbeau, the guitar player David Gauthier and the double bass player Shane McKenzie and himself. Constantly searching for a clearer expression, this new CD Racolages testifies strongly about the group's evolving cohesiveness.
