Info for Soiree
French Canadian singer Chantal Chamberland strikes a perfect balance between the soul of the classic singer/songwriter and the dynamic verve of a jazz chanteuse. She can swing with the best of them, then capture your heart with a soft torch song. Her sixth album, SOIREE, captures both of those components - lively and tender, with a beautiful collection of songs mostly sung in French. Chamberland describes this set as a collection of songs with personal meaning; songs and composers that she grew up with like Charles Aznavour, Francis Cabrel and Diane Tell. As always, Chamberland bewitches the listener with her smoky, smooth vocals, which glide sensually over a light jazz backdrop of piano, bass, rhythm and sax. One particular highlight of this set is the bittersweet closing song "Gran Torino," a song about love and loss. Chamberland's voice has a fragile, wistful quality that makes the song particularly emotional.
"The music and songs by Chantal Chamberland are always present in my radio show: BORDER SHOW since 2004 with the release of Serendipity Street. Her new album: Soirée ...enhances the warm and enveloping voice of Chantal, she approaches these great classics with style and elegance. A pleasure to listen too, from the first note to the last. Chantal is among my favorite jazz vocalists!” (Maurizio Benvenuti, Radio Incontro - 91.9 FM Pesaro, Italy)
“Chantal has a warm, tosty voice that sends a glow through her audience" (Jerry D'Souza - All About Jazz)
Chantal Chamberland, guitar, vocals
Every music genre is characterized by a unique style and specific instrumentation. For French Canadian guitarist & jazz vocalist Chantal Chamberland her sensuous, smoky voice is her trademark instrument.
With some of Chamberland’s personal musical influences as her canvas, this Quebec born chanteuse delivers knockout performances that are as unforgettable as the singer herself.
With 7 contemporary jazz releases, Chantal’s star shines brightly on an international stage. Her latest release, Temptation, showcases her impressive range as a vocal stylist. While always avoiding vocal gymnastics, Chamberland moves from quiet and intimate to sultry, sensual and soulful with seamless ease. The result is a Temptation you will gladly and inevitably succumb to.
From multiple appearances at the Montreal International Jazz Festival to headline concerts from Hong Kong to Cartagena, Chantal’s success internationally is not only a testament to her personal evolution but cements her role as one of the finest female interpreters of jazz today.
This album contains no booklet.
