    Not only a consummate musician with a wealth of experience, Norm is also funny and kind and truly holds it down with any band he plays in!

    Norman is a superb drummer, band leader and a delightfully charming and responsible individual. He can be relied on to do his job well and very professionally; he is also an easy person to work with. As an audience member, I have had the pleasure of listening to his music and would recommend him to anyone who would like to hear some great jazz.

    I’ve had the opportunity to work with Norman Marshall-Villeneuve on many occasions and have experience his total command of his drums. He’s always backed me up in the way I’ve requested as a singer and I’ve had the opportunity to observe Norm working with not only other singers but other musicians in instrumental gigs. A true disciple of Art Blakey, Norm has always wowed his audiences every time he assembles a sextet to pay tribute to the late drumming legend. In summary, one can never go wrong in working with Norm on drums. He’s always displayed consummate professionalism and taste in his work.

    Norm is the finest jazz drummer I`ve ever played with or listened to. His solos, whether driving in an up-tempo bop or swing tune, or more restrained in a ballad or Latin arangement, are always musical. His playing can make a good band great and a great band spectacular. He always makes his players bring their A-game. Like Satchmo, Norm is a real ambassador for great jazz., and one of the great people in the business.

    Norman is one of Canada's jazz treasures, as well as being a very special person, and remains delightfully down to earth. It has been my distinct pleasure to share the stage with him on several occasions and the energy, excellence and passion he brings to every performance is something to behold. I only wish we could work together more often and hope this year that we will. I have played with many, many musicians from all over the world, and Norman is definitely tops in my book.

    Norman is a fantastic drummer steeped in the hard-bop tradition of jazz music. A good friend and mentor to many musicians, I always enjoy jamming with him.

    Norman Marshall Villeneuve has been a pillar of the Toronto jazz community for decades before his recent return to Montréal. He has generously supported numerous promising young players who have since gone on to successful careers. Most importantly, however, he swings like crazy. If you need a swinging drummer in your combo, Norman Marshall Villeneuve is your man!

    Good drummers can be found anywhere. Great drummers are hard to find. Drummers - and people - like Norm - come along once in a lifetime.
