Montreal Sessions

Norman Marshall Villeneuve

“Montreal Sessions” is a compilation of music from the 1960s and early 70s from reel-to-reel tapes Norm recorded when he performed at Rockhead's Paradise the Black Bottom with Montreal jazz greats Nick Aldrich, Alvin Pall, Alan Wellman, Linton Garner, Buddy Jones, Bernie Mackey and Ivan Symonds. Tracks 5..6..7 were recorded in Montreal at SSS Studios with Nelson Symonds, Charlie Biddle and Norman Marshall Villeneuve.

King Dog

Norman Marshall Villeneuve

“King Dog” CD is derived from a 1985 recording session at Toronto’s Kensington Sound Studios, Following their engagement at East 85th, Norman Marshall Villeneuve, Nelson Symonds, Doug Richardson and Kingsley Ettienne recorded their session from 2am to 6am. The 2-inch reel had never been used until Andre White converted it to electronic format in 2015, 30 years later. The result is a stunning set of post-modern bebop as fresh, new and hip as today.
