Langlois, Jerome
Jerome Langlois "Live 2006/Themes (1984)"
Jerome Langlois "Live 2006/Themes (1984)"

Double CD gathering together the reissue of the rare studio album from 1984 -"Themes" - with the 2006 live performance at the FMPM progressive music festival in Montreal. Fans will recall Langlois as the original keyboardist and one of the founding members of the Canadian band Maneige, playing on their first two releases. Before that he co-founded Canadian band Lasting Weep in 1968, breaking new ground in the rock music idiom and paving the way for Maneige as well as bands like Harmonium, Pollen and Conventum. "Themes" is a beautiful solo piano album, very classical and masterful both in composition and in execution. Since leaving Maneige, Langlois has been involved in writing music for plays, dance, theater & film. This experience shows in the solo piano pieces but also in the beautiful arrangements he wrote for the live ensemble that plays on the other disc in this set. A couple of the solo piano tunes from "Themes" are given larger arrangements as well as five compositions from his excellent 2005 release "Molignak". The ensemble is Langlois on piano & clarinet, Bernard Cormier on violin, Romie de Guise-Langlois on clarinet, Mario Legare on bass guitar, Paul Picard on percussion, Francois Richard on piano & flutes and Gilles Schetagne on drums & percussion. As one might expect from the instrumentation the tunes have a chamber music feel to them. One thinks of Maneige a little here, Mike Oldfield a little there, some classical music in places. This is certainly for listeners who enjoy the gentler side of prog but it is very rewarding and stands up to repeated listenings very well indeed.
