les Ballets Jazz de Montréal Tours the West

from a media release - Les Ballet Jazz de Montréal heads West:

LES BALLETS JAZZ DE MONTREAL
presents Zip Zap Zoom and Rossini Cards
…plus a chance to PARTY WITH BJM!

Part of the Brian Webb Dance Company 2010 l 11 Season

Edmonton – In its 32nd year, Brian Webb Dance Company (BWDC) presents new dances by some of Canada’s leading dance companies and introduces dance artists Edmonton has never experienced before.
Bold, opulent and (r)evolutionary…are themes that best describe the BWDC 2010 l 11 season. Canada’s beloved dance company les Ballets Jazz de Montréal will open the season on October 7 & 8 with two amazing dances – Zip Zap Zoom and Rossini Cards - at the Timms Centre for the Arts (87th Ave. & 112th St).

Choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Zip Zap Zoom inserts dancers into the realms of the virtual world of internet games where they search for the ‘real’ emotions and impulses between avatars. Rossini Cards exemplifies choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti’s baroque, larger than life style, in which classical technique serves as a basis for a decidedly modern work of art. The spectator will witness a feast where the sumptuous choreography is married to the music of Gioacchino Rossini, an emblematic figure of Italian opera.

The October 8 performance will be followed by a “Party with BJM” fundraiser for the Brian Webb Dance Company. A hip DJ, delicious delectables, cash bar and silent auction will meet party-goers for a night of revellry with the cast of les Ballet Jazz! (Party with BJM night (includes performance ticket and party access): $50)

Individual Show tickets are priced at $30 each or $20 for Students/Seniors. Tickets available at TIX on the Square: 780.420.1757 or tixonthesquare.ca. Season subscriptions also available at TIX on the Square. (Note: all performances begin at 8pm.)

*NB - note also that the BJM tour includes other Western dates, including late September performances in Oregon & Wyoming and late October in Fort McMurray and Banff - check their website for details.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
