Lisanne Tremblay “Ecdyses” at KD’s, 408 Rogers Ave (betw Sterling St & Lefferts Ave), 7:30-9:30 pm
“Ecdyses” explores the ongoing processes of self-transformation. Uniting the voices of the violin, guitar, and drums, it pushes the boundaries of musical genres to express shared human experiences such as vulnerability and strength. Described as an “imaginative and agile Québécoise violinist” by JazzTimes, New York-based Lisanne Tremblay has shared the stage with outstanding artists such as Greg Osby, Liberty Ellman, Gerald Cleaver, Stephan Crump, E.J. Strickland, Devin Gray, and Rick Rosato. Pioneering the rare field of improvisation on the violin, she is an instructor at McGill University and a recipient of several artistic grants from the Canada Council for the Arts.
Tremblay’s distinctive approach captured the attention of many through her album “Violinization,” which was released in 2015 on Greg Osby’s Inner Circle Music label. “Lisanne Tremblay’s tone is impressively pure, she displays superb articulation and she’s not afraid to use the full range of her instrument.” DownBeat Magazine
