Normand Glaude - Harmonica
JP Allain - Piano
Michel Delage - Drums
Tom Denison - Bass
Normand Glaude's new artistic endeavour is the chromatic harmonica, however he is mostly known as a double bassist around Ottawa where he has been playing for over 25 years. He rekindled his love for harmonica, the very first instrument he played, when Tim Bedner approached him to contribute on his solo album project, Of Light and Shadow (2012), where Normand's sound can be heard throughout the recording. He can also be heard as a guest on a variety of local jazz artists recordings. Normand owns and runs the Morning Anthem recording studio, where he has recorded dozens of local artists.
About the concert: On the program of Toots' Suite will be some of Toots Thielemans signature compositions along with other songs that Toots' musical soul forever touched. "Most jazz fans know Toots and own a few of his recordings, but only ever hear them in their living rooms. I really like the idea of playing this great music on stage so jazz fans can also experience it live", says Normand.
