Pascal Tremblay knows the use of sensuality, elegance and delicacy; he reveals a profound knowledge of acoustic jazz, at least within the boundaries of his own composing and improvisation or interpretation. His experience grows up from the age of fifteen by playing every weekend. He attends college at Vanier then goes on to play in the Carabeans and throughout Europe where he starts to write his own music. He helps maintain jazz in the Laurentians and around Saint- Jerome by playing in many clubs for years. First a saxophone player, he also records and plays with diverse artists like Gilles Vigneault and Gary Boudreault as a bass player; just like with La Corde de Bois, a band that he co-founded. A pillar of the jazz scene in the laurentiens, his project named jazz faction earned him to be chosen to represent Canada at the 2005 Aïchi International Exposition, in Japan. It also got him to be nominated at the Grand Prix General Motors in the 2006 Montreal International Jazz Festival as well as in the Galaxie contest. Jazz Faction has been selected to represented Canadian culture during UNESCO summit, Ottawa 2007. LUEURS, Jazz Faction’s third project, is enhanced by a string quartet and specifically illustrates the bond between impressionist era compositions and modern jazz.
