Montréal’s Craig Pedersen Quartet releases new album GHOSTS at Black Squirrel Books, April 24th, 2015 What: The Craig Pedersen Quartet CD release When: Friday April 24th, 2015. 8pm Where: Black Squirrel Books (1073 Bank Street) Cost: $10 at the door The Craig Pedersen Quartet’s third release Ghosts is a contemplative work, exploring themes of darkness, suffering and the pleasure of ensuing release. Coming in at just under 18-minutes, the album is musically concentrated. Like running with weights, the musicians are squeezed to their limits, forced to express within tight constraints. The results are uncontrolled saxophone wails, soaring bass melodies, and explosive drumming all reigned in by Pedersen’s haunting trumpet playing and compositions. This is music that shows that from here, we need not answer to our suffering, but see that it has stood in front of something all along. Craig Pedersen - trumpet Linsey Wellman - alto saxophone Joel Kerr - double bass Eric Thibodeau - drums Bennett Bedoukian - drums
