Live à la Casa Évidence, Thelonious Monk

… the group gives highly personal renditions of Monk tunes, illustrating why jazz innovators quickly hailed him as major figure. AllMusic, USA

There’s a slightly glutinous quality to Cartier’s plugged in bass which sometimes threatens to dampen the quirky spring in Monk’s music. The Wire, UK

“Live à la Casa” is the second record of Évidence a Montréal based trio devoted since 1985 ot the music of Thelonious Monk one of the greatest composers in the history of jazz.

“Évidence is a jewel of a little band that Montréalers in the know are extremely proud of. It consists of Jean Derome, heard here on alto, Pierre Cartier, electric bass and Pierre Tanguay, drums — individually, musicians at home in many musical genres. If you add the eight compositions on this CD to the 10 contained on the earlier Évidence — Musique de Thelonious Monk [AM 028] you have about a quarter of Monk’s compositional legacy.” —Len Dobbin
