Normand Guilbeault

1958 -

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Bass/double bass/cello

Genre: Jazz

Double bassist, composer and performer Normand Guilbeault is one of the crucial players on the current Québécois and Canadian jazz scene. Recognized for his brilliance at combining classic jazz, experimentation and folk traditions from the world over, he has collaborated with a wealth of our major names, including Jean Beaudet, Yannick Rieu, Nelson Symonds, Marianne Trudel, Robert Marcel Lepage and Bernard Primeau. He has also made his mark in numerous groups including his own Ensemble and the excellent trio Derome Guilbeault Tanguay, a standout since the early ’00s. With his dedication to diversity, he’s an artist who never hesitates to bridge poetry, theatre, dance and film music in such projects as ParKerouac, fusing poetry and jazz, presented in 2002 at the OFF Festival de Jazz de Montréal, where he is co-instigator, programmer and organizer; and the Visions de Kerouac project in 2003 as part of the Festival international de littérature. Winner of the 1994 Prix de Jazz du Maurier and two Félix Awards at the 2004 Gala de l’ADISQ for the album and show Kanasuta, his acclaimed recordings include Dualismus, Basso Continuo, Hommage à Mingus, Riel Plaidoyer musical, Mingus Erectus and Wow! released in 2012.
