… ce René Lussier est bien agaçant d’avoir autant de talent. — Revue & Corrigée, France
Composer, performer and improviser René Lussier is one of the leading figures in Canadian “musique actuelle.” In 1989 he received the Paul Gilson Award for Le trésor de la langue, released on Ambiances Magnétiques label and later presented in concert in Canada and abroad.
Lussier now presents “Le corps de l’ouvrage” (Body of Work), a series of instrumental pieces taken from film scores, special projects or from his most recent writings. This music arranged for small and large acoustic ensembles, truly reflects the very personnal approach so typical to Lussier.
The twelve pieces on this CD yield a great instrumental music featuring the melodic daxophone and screaming sax as soloists, sustained by a strong energetic rhythmic section. A wonderful album you should investigate now!

High quality modern big band jazz with an adventurous sense of humor and an offbeat, angular feel. Various combinations of 12 people on mostly acoustic instruments produce a sound tending toward circus-like cacophony. Lussier is an excellent musician and an incredible, adventurous composer. His pieces have a jumpy laughability and a delightful power to evoke nostalgic eras inside a thoroughly modern context.
