Album Notes
For drummer and composer Christian Pamerleau, Everyday Learning is the logical next step in his project with his band Vue d'Ensemble. Now a quartet, the band has built upon the communicative powers of its music with nine original works that take the listener on a colourful musical journey. Featuring Pierre Côté, one of Canada's most talented and unique guitarists; Mario Fraser, who brings his matchless touch to the Fender Rhodes; and Guy Boisvert on bass, whose reputation as an exceptional musician is firmly established.

Christian Pamerleau, batteur et compositeur du groupe Vue d’Ensemble, propose avec Everyday Learning la suite de son projet. Maintenant un quatuor, Vue d’Ensemble confirme les valeurs communicatives de sa musique avec neuf pièces originales amenant l’auditeur à travers un périple musical très imagé. Avec Pierre Côté, un des guitaristes les plus singuliers et talentueux au Canada, Mario Fraser qui apporte une touche inégalable au Fender Rhodes et Guy Boisvert à la contrebasse dont la réputation de musicien exceptionnel n’est plus à faire.

Overall View
“Everyday Learning” is both modern, with an obvious knowledge of the best known small fusion ensembles and sounds, and classic in its respect for melodic line and composition. Vue D’ensemble’s newest release is timeless, feeling as it could have been released with the standards of several decades.

Having lived with this CD for two months before writing, there are several aspects that obviously need to be mentioned. Transporting the recorded music to a club or small stage venue is very believable. This feels like music that should and wants to be played live for an audience, rather than notes simply placed on a page. I haven’t heard this quartet (guitar, bass, keyboards and percussion) live, but I suspect they would put on a wonderful performance.

Lending a strong sense of connection to the standards and the long time groups that have brought them to light is the heavy use of the Fender Rhodes, which matches perfectly to the texture and melodies within.

And the compositions are the key to the success of this recording. While this group may just be coming into wider view in the States, listening to the CD will make you feel right at home, bringing in to mind our best known groups. (To this listener, numerous spots on the recording are reminiscent of some Metheny selections.) Pamerleau’s compositions are quite strong, and should be considered excellent material for other jazz performers.
