Heart's Grave, 7/10 Links:

Jean Derome, a cofounder of the Ambiances Magnetiques record label, had a busy life promoting, performing and composing music around Canada. His style can easily shift from classical to jazz, from rock to avantgarde. Derome has written theatre and dance scores, has collaborated with Rene` Lussier on Fin Du Travail (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1983) and Le Tresor De La Langue (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1989).

Another group was Les Granules (again with Lussier), whose albums were Soyez Vigilants, Restez Vivants (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1986), Le Retour Des Granules (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1988), Au Royaume Du Silencieux (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1992). Initially their project was similar to Lol Coxhill's Welfare State: socially-inspired free jazz and folk-rock.

Confitures De Gagaku (Victo, 1988) was the first album released under his own name, scored for a chamber orchestra of flute, clarinet, saxophone, keyboards, bass, percussion and vocals, inspired to Japanese culture and leaning towards an intellectual form of pop-jazz.

Evidence was a collaboration between Jean Derome and the influential Canadian bassist Pierre Cartier (a project originally started by Sylvain Leroux in 1982), and mostly a trio with drummer Pierre Tanguay. Evidence recorded Musique de Thelonious Monk (Ambiances Mangnetiques, 1993) and Live A La Casa (Ambiances Mangnetiques, 2000), two tributes to Thelonious Monk.

Derome was a member of the Ensemble Pierre Cartier that recorded (information provided by Allyson Lyne):

1989 Chanson Du Fil; Amplitude label; JACD-4010 Jean-Denis Levasseur sax soprano / Jean Derome sax alto / Andr‚ Verreault trombone t‚nor / Robert Ellis, trombone basse / Pierre Cartier, bass & compositions / Pierre Tanguay, drums
1989 - Les Fleurs du Tapis: this is on Ambiances Magn‚tiques label managed by D.A.M.E. These two discs were recorded on successive days with the same recording team - can't remember why they got released on different labels. This one is a smaller group: Jean-Denis Levasseur, sax soprano; Jean Derome, sax alto; Pierre Cartier basse electrique & compositions; and Pierre Tanguay on drums. Then there are two recordings under Pierre's own name (also with Jean Derome and Pierre Tanguay, of course). These are:
1996, Chansons de Douve; compositions de Pierre Cartier set to poems by Yves Bonnefoy. Pierre sang on this, with AngŠle Trudeau, soprano & No‰lla Huet , alto; Jean-Denis Levasseur, Jean Derome, Ivanhoe Jolicoeur, Sylvain Jacob, Tom Walsh, Pierre Tanguay, & Julien Gr‚goire.
2001 "Dis, Blaise...." Pierre Cartier's setting of Blaise Cendrars' 1913 epic poem "Prose du Transsib‚rien et de la Petite Jehanne de France" Ambiance Magn‚tiques label: AM 102 2CD - in the DAME catalogue. Pierre Cartier, voice & bass; Jean Derome sax & bass flute; Jean Ren‚, viola; Tom Walsh, trombone; Bernard Falaise, guitar; Pierre Tanguay, drums.
2006 "Chansons de la belle esp‚rance" - a collection of songs
In the 1990s, Jean Derome formed Les Dangereux Zhoms (keyboards, trombone, guitar, bass and drums), a group that released Carnets De Voyage (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1995), Navre` (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1996), and Torticolis (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998), later collected in the three-CD boxset 1994-96 (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998). Navre` is possibly the most accomplished. Navre and Toronto flow naturally and seamlessly, without a main theme to hold them together. Anchive, Casse-cou and Train are exercises on odd timbres of the lead instruments.

Three Suite Piece (Recommended, 1996) is a collaboration with Tom Cora, Rene` Lussier and Chris Cutler.

Derome's solo albums include Je Me Souviens (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1997), Nous Percons Les Oreilles (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998), for two voices and two saxophones, Plinc! Plonc! (Ambiances Magnetiques, 2001) and Le Magasin Du Tissu (Ambiances Magnetiques, 2002).

La Bete/ The Beast Within (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1997) and the double album 3 Musiques Pour Ubu (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998) collects scores composed for dance and theatre over the years.

MUsique de Thelonious Monk (Ambiances Mangnetiques, 1993) e Live A La Casa (Ambiances Mangnetiques, 2000) sono tributi degli Evidence a Thelonious Monk. Pierre Tanguay alla batteria e Pierre Cartier al basso sono diventati eccellenti performers jazz.

Jean Derome, cofondatore dell'etichetta discografica Ambiances Magnetiques, passa la vita a promuvere, suonare e comporre musica in tutto il Canada. Il suo stile si libra con leggerezza dalla classica al jazz, dal rock all'avanguardia. Derome ha scrittop musica per teatro e per balletti, ha collaborato con René Lussier su Fin Du Travail (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1983) e Le Tresor De La Langue (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1989).

Ha anche suonato nei Conventum, con lo stesso Lussier ed altri, i cui lavori sono raccolti in RE-Edition 1979-80 (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1986).

Un altro gruppo era Les Granules (ancora con Lussier), i cui album erano Soyez Vigilants, Restez Vivants (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1986), Le Retour Des Granules (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1988), Au Royaume Du Silencieux (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1992).

Confitures De Gagaku (Victo, 1988) è stato il primo album che ha realizzato a suo nome.

Negli anni '90, Jean Derome forma i Dangereux Zhoms (tastiere, trombone, chitarra, basso e batteria), che realizzaono Carnets De Voyage (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1995), Navré (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1996), e Torticolis (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998), poi raccolti nel triplo CD boxset 1994-96 (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998). Navré il meglio riuscito. Navre e Toronto preseguono naturalmente e senza cuciture, senza un tema principale che li tenza insieme. Anchive, Casse-cou e Train sono esercizi sui trimbri strani degli strumenti solisti.

Three Suite Piece (Recommended, 1996) è una collaborazione con Tom Cora, René Lussier e Chris Cutler.

La discografia solista di Derome include Je Me Souviens (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1997), Nous Percons Les Oreilles (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998), per due voci e due sassofoni, Plinc! Plonc! (Ambiances Magnetiques, 2001) e Le Magasin Du Tissu (Ambiances Magnetiques, 2002).

La Bete/ The Beast Within (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1997) e il doppio album 3 Musiques Pour Ubu (Ambiances Magnetiques, 1998) raccoglie pezzi composti per il balletto e il teatro nel corso degli anni.

The Trio that released 10 Compositions (Ambiances Magnetiques, 2004), the jazz standards of The Feeling Of Jazz (june 2005), Danse a l'Anverse (november 2010) and Wow! (august 2012), comprising Normand Guilbeault on contrabass and Pierre Tanguay on drums, is Derome's most explicit jazz effort.

Jean Derome reformed Les Dangereux Zhoms and recorded To Continue (2008) that contains six complex compositions.

Jean Derome's Chamber Music 1992-2012 (Ambiences Magnetiques, 2015) contains compositions for chamber ensemble.
