Damien Robitaille (born 1982) is a french musician from the small town of Lafontaine, Ontario.
Robitaille started his music career at a young age, when he started playing the piano when he was eight years old, and later in his childhood he learned to play such instruments as the trumpet, guitar and violin. Later on, Robitaille attended the Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo to study classical music. While at Sir Wilfried Laurier, he was a member of the rock band The Mezameeze (made to sound like "Mes Amis" in french, meaning "My Friends"). Halfway through his university career he was a finalist in Ontario Pop, a franco-ontarian competition, in which he won a scholarship to attend a one year program at "L'Ecole Nationale de la Chanson" in Granby, Quebec.

One of my favorite bands who albums were great but they really did shine when they hit the stage. I got to see Hot Tuna a few years ago and they still do it. This is like a small capsule of time 65 to 70 when this group shined before they moved into that pop band. Back in these days they were on the edge and at times went over it just enough to delight us. The songs are here but like a great jazz band the "standards" changed with the times and had a life of their own and they would take the songs out for a walk and at times a run. This for me a real treat to hear more of this great band live.

The fourth volume of the Haydn2032 project thrusts into the limelight one of the most important stock characters in the theatre of sounds and words, the Kapellmeister, and explores some glamorous and (in)glorious moments in the career of Maestro Haydn. It features three symphonies by the "Shakespeare of Music" - one of which is even associated with ana ctual play. This bears teh title "Sinfonia in C per la commedia intitolata il distratto" and consists of an overture, four entra'actes, and a finale to be played at the end of the performance. Also on this release is a large-scale buffo scene by his colleague Cimarosa. Il maestro di cappella is a witty and ironic parody, in which a member of the "old school" of musicians tries to improve the ensemble playing of his orchestra. To his chagrin, the players do react, but in extremely undisciplined fashion: they are distracted, make false entries and disagree musically…

Fink is the pseudonym of the Berlin-based English singer-songwriter, Fin Greenall. It is also the name of the three-piece band he formed in the mid-2000s – with bassist Guy Whittaker and drummer Tim Thornton – when he grew disillusioned with dance music and being a DJ, which had shaped his music career up to that point. Resurgam is the trio’s sixth studio album, and while one can easily hear elements of the folk-rock stylings that marked the band’s previous records, Resurgam’s sound is predominately one of sparsity, of repetition and variation that would almost be drone were the music heavier.

One of the great soprano saxophonists of all time (ranking up there with Sidney Bechet and John Coltrane), Steve Lacy's career was fascinating to watch develop. He originally doubled on clarinet and soprano (dropping the former by the mid-'50s), inspired by Bechet, and played Dixieland in New York with Rex Stewart, Cecil Scott, Red Allen, and other older musicians during 1952-1955. He debuted on record in a modernized Dixieland format with Dick Sutton in 1954. However, Lacy soon jumped over several styles to play free jazz with Cecil Taylor during 1955-1957. They recorded together and performed at the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival. Lacy recorded with Gil Evans in 1957 (they would work together on an irregular basis into the 1980s), was with Thelonious Monk's quintet in 1960 for four months, and then formed a quartet with Roswell Rudd (1961-1964) that exclusively played Monk's music; only one live set (for Emanen in 1963) resulted from that very interesting group. 6 original albums from the soprano sax maestro including works with Don Cherry & Gil Evans; Soprano Sax, Plays Theloniuous Monk, Straight Horn Of.., Evidence, Gil Evans & Ten, Great Jazz Standards.

Krokofant is a progressive free jazz-rock instrumental trio from Kongsberg, Bukserud, Norway, comprising guitarist Tom Hasslan, saxophonist Jørgen Mathisen, and drummer Axel Skalstad. They took their name from a mythical creature out of a popular Norwegian children's song, described as "a lumbering trumpeting beast with a fearsome array of teeth in its snapping jaws," a dead cross between an elephant and a crocodile. This was a perfect description of the band's sound on their 2014 self-titled debut. Krokofant's sound weds progressive rock influenced by King Crimson and Henry Cow, to the improvisational power of electric jazz ensembles such as Terje Rypdal's early quartet, Mahavishnu Orchestra, the improvisational chaos of Last Exit, and the mathy death metal of Meshuggah.

Standard repertoire doesn’t get any more “standard” than Bach’s concertos for violin in A minor and E major–and every violinist from minor to major has recorded them. Which means that there are about a zillion versions available, many of them first rate. Well, here’s another to add to the list, excellent performances in fine sound–sturdy, stylish, reliable, lustrous, with lively tempos and some nifty, well-integrated ornaments–all the components needed to confirm this as a worthy staple of any library. And for good measure, the program includes two concertos not usually presented as violin works but in their later incarnations as keyboard concertos. Both are in D minor–BWV 1052 and BWV 1060, the latter for two solo instruments, for which Zimmermann is joined here by his violinist son, Serge. It makes for an engaging program, something different from the usual pairing of the A minor and E major with the more familiar “Bach Double” (BWV 1043). Even after experiencing these works probably hundreds of times, hearing these performances is the musical equivalent to walking into a room and everything just feels right.

Bach's motets are surrounded by much uncertainty. To begin with, we do not know how many he actually composed, as some have been lost while others have been wrongly attributed to him. Although several of the motets were written for funerals, it is also uncertain if they were actually performed during church services: as a genre, the motet was established as early as the 13th century and by Bach's time it was considered to be old-fashioned and backward-looking. Even so, the motets are the only vocal works by Bach that have an unbroken performance tradition until the present time, which may serve as testimony to the powerful response that they induce in listeners and performers alike. They were originally believed to have been composed for choir a cappella, but it is now thought that Bach himself may have performed them either a cappella or with instruments doubling the vocal parts and with basso continuo.

Trade Mark "Bad Boy" - After all the experimental episodes the audience has faced in the field of New Music in recent decades, today the oeuvre of George Antheil will be welcomed with a great deal of sympathy and many a friendly smile. The American knew full well not only how to meet the expectations of an audience "prepared to protest", but also how even to challenge them more overtly. An excellent example is the Jazz Symphony, written in 1925, shortly after George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, that bursting the limits of the customary listening experiences of teh age in a similar way to e.g. Stravinsky's Le sacre du printemps of 1913.
