Yves Lambert - TRIO Yves Lambert Trio

£29.99

Product description

Yves Lambert is a back country musician with a kamikaze style, whose 40 year career has been full of risks, adventures, and challenges.

Over time, Yves Lambert has become a veritable patriarch of the revival of Quebec’s musical roots. His very personal manner of linking the relevance of his words with anecdotes and his concerns contribute to his great propensity for interpretation. Lambert can sing it all, from Boisson d’avril with Groovy Aardvark (a hard rock Quebecois band), to children’s songs such as Gilles Vigneault’s Un trésor dans mon jardin, or by going blues on Petite fleur by Sidney Béchet. He also passionately supports the songs of poet Gaston Miron, all while maintaining his traditional music leadership role in La Bottine Souriante and his Bébert Orchestra. In fact, some Quebec critics portray Yves Lambert as a beacon in the aesthetics of Quebec’s cultural heritage.

It was in 1976 that the singer and multi-instrumentalist founded what became the legendary group La Bottine Souriante, with partners Mario Forest and André Marchand. Mr. Lambert’s natural talent and charisma, together with this growing group, has had a strong impact on the evolution of Quebec’s musical heritage as well as the revival of traditional music. Throughout his 26 years as a member of La Bottine Souriante, Yves Lambert was the link between the various incarnations of the group and was their heart and soul. From 1976 to January 2003, he contributed to the group’s rise by participating in numerous shows, tours, and television programs in Quebec as well as around the world. The Bottine experience led him to share various awards with the group, including 3 Junos, 8 Félix Awards for Traditional Album of the Year, and 1 BBC Award for Traditional Album and Group of the Year, as well as Félix nominations in the following categories: Show of the Year, Group of the Year, and Most Successful Artist Outside Quebec

Lambert, Rondeau, and Gauthier experimented with the trio concept during their 23-concert summer circuit tour in Eastern Quebec in 2010. Strongly encouraged by charmed audiences and by the pleasure of the musical challenge, in fall 2012, the trio delivered an album where the “sound” achieved extraordinary mastery and affirmed the trio’s distinctive personality. The trio brilliantly demonstrates how traditional local music continually reinvents itself within a modern context. Despite there being only three musicians, nothing of the sound is lost. The three multi-instrumentalists multiply the decibels as though there were many more than three members. Studio wizardry? Absolutely not! With a simple modification to his guitar, Olivier Rondeau added depth by expanding the instrument’s dynamic range. This process enables a new way of playing guitar and bass simultaneously. What we hear on the album can be 95% reproduced live on stage.
