L’Orchestre de Dance (Quebec/ USA) The notion of jazz as sit-down-and-listen concert music, by now, comprises much of its history, but in the end, it cannot escape its glorious roots: jazz was made for dancers, and L’Orchestre de danse wants to prove it to you. This collective ensemble gathers stalwart members of Montreal’s musique actuelle scene for the express purpose of getting down, cutting a rug, and shaking your booty. Despite wildly popular concerts in Quebec, L’Orchestre hasn’t bothered recording yet; they are primarily a live band getting live listeners up off their seats and dancing in the aisles. The band is Pierre Tanguay, drums; Jean Derome, reeds; Tom Walsh, trombone; Rainer Weins, guitar; DJ Pocket, turntables & vox; with special guest Fred Frith on bass. Pierre Tanguay: “Everybody dances to us! Even people who never dance are dancing within minutes of hearing us!” A bold statement, sure, but what a delectable, groovable, move-your-hipsable treat if L’Orchestre de danse follow through on it!
