Product Description

Amazon.ca

Nettement plus inspiré qu’Unforgettable Songs, album de reprises archiconnues qui l’a précédé, Blues ramène Bob Walsh à ce qu’il sait faire de mieux : entonner des airs déchirants avec franchise et intensité. Le bluesman a judicieusement sélectionné 14 pièces qui synthétisent à merveille son parcours : on y trouve des compositions originales ("Snow Falling Grey Day"), des airs traditionnels ("House of the Rising Sun"), des reprises populaires ("Hit the Road Jack") ou plus obscures ("Buzzard Luck"). Walsh alterne également entre orchestrations riches et dépouillées, n’hésitant pas à renouer avec un quatuor à cordes ou à faire appel à une section de cuivres.

Le musicien atteint ainsi un très bel équilibre et livre un album aussi dynamique que chaleureux, qui ne laisse aucune place à l’ennui. Les performances sont sans faille : non seulement Walsh est tout en voix, mais son orchestre, qui compte dans ses rangs l’harmoniciste Guy Bélanger et le bassiste Jean Cyr, est aussi en feu ! Les contributions des nombreux invités confèrent à chacune des pistes un caractère unique : Steve Hill, Gilles Sioui et, surtout, Jeff Healey brillent aux guitares, tandis que Dawn Tyler Watson et Kim Richardson excellent aux chœurs. Voilà un opus qui réconciliera les fans du Walsh des débuts et ceux qui se sont intéressés à son versant plus commercial. À consommer sans réserve ! --Nicolas Houle

Bob Walsh has been a closely-guarded Québec secret! An Anglo Quebécer from Trois Rivières he socks out the blues in the style of John Lee Hooker and Joe Cocker. Also on this CD are harmonica solos from Guy Belanger who makes the harmonica an extension of his soul! Need I say more? Get this CD and relive the classics of blues.

This cd will make you love music the way you did at 17. It is the best cd I own and I have recommended it to at least 15 people who play it every day in their car or at home. It will lift your spirits no matter what. I have seem him in person 5 times and I cannot stay in my seat when he sings. Guy Belanger is amazing and they all have a great time on stage, you feel part of it everytime.House of the rising sun- goosebumps every time. I just bought the last cd on amazon...hope you get more...there are none in all the places I have looked.
