The group carried on, but the Mingus project was put on the shelf, only to be dusted down a couple of times a year for special events.
Slowly, the quintet came back to Mingus ' body of work, changing its repertoire, and by Februarythe Mingus project was back to full-speed, ready to be captured live over two nights at the Va-et-Vient, one of Montreal's most forward-thinking jazz clubs. Mingus Erectus offers seven revamped Mingus standards and not-so-standards, Dont Be Afraid one original by sax player Jean Derome.
The set starts with a vigorous rendition of "Pithecanthropus Erectus," led by Guilbeault 's quiet yet oh-so-efficient bassline. The lighter "Tijuana Gift Shop" works out nicely but leaves less of an impression, while the ballads "Conversation" and "Peggy's Blue Skylight" are treated with the utmost respect -- which does not rule out some creative melodic developments.
Entirely updated to dis honor U. President George W. Bush, this biting "Fable of George Dubya Faubus" adds a lot of crunch -- good thing most listeners of creative jazz are of left-wing persuasions! Guilbeault and Lavergne 's vocal imprecations make the piece stand out on Unseen - Dominion - Blackout otherwise instrumental record and, if the musical treatment sticks rather close to home, the political hijacking will surely please Eugene Chadbourne fans and a few others too!
