Two years away from the boards: Daniel Lanois has not lost his hand

Two years away from the boards: Daniel Lanois has not lost his hand

That is, regardless of the times he performed elsewhere in the metropolis. We can think of his recent work at the Mile X End Festival, which he joined with U2 members at the Olympic Stadium in 1992, or far away in 2019.

But Daniel Lanois was the first to headline the Place des Festivals at FIJM on Thursday evening. I’m been “headlining” since Lanois joined Paul Simon in an open concert during the festival in 2006. But a song and a full concert, not the same. We are not going to juggle and, above all, not drain our happiness. We had fun with bassist Jim Wilson – along with him in 2019 – and drummer Kyle Crane, as well as Lannois‌, who performed as a trio.

This is not acceptable, I saw three people start their performance with a pretty sound dub from the album. Acadia (1989), i.e. bilingual Under the storm sky And Pretty Louis.

A delicate start that gave us time to appreciate Lanois ’talent and his dark ensemble with brilliant. Anyone know? Maybe there is a feeling as it comes from the next song Shine (2003). And Fire, A dubious song, well pitched by the guitar, whose pitch is increasing.

Lanois and his colleagues continued the same trend, increasing the intensity and drawing for a long time, especially at concerts.Acadia And of Shine. The Maker And I Love, Were delivered by inheritance, severely damaged on heart and soul. For that Giving slowly, Which appeared directly from the drawers of Neil Young and his Crazy Horse, it was very heavy and dissenting.

Lanois is definitely not a guitarist. It is as sharp as possible and it falls under the holes. Even after a long time off the boards.

There were so many beautiful faces, Lanois noted, not very talkative, but with a smile that did not lie. This is our first concert in two years.

It would not be visible if we relied exclusively on the touch and ability of the 70-year-old guitarist on Sunday. Born in Hull, the musician spent most of his life in Quebec, Western Canada, and in Dublin, Republic of Ireland. By remembering this course he provided Falling at your feet.

This is a song I wrote for my good friend Bono.

And we were treated to a cool version of the song that was part of the soundtrack to the Wim Wenders movie, Million dollar hotel, In 2000.

Last rest before the decibel storm, finally, by Power to the people, Opera And Golden dream, Eliminated all possible noise from the Lanois Instrumental Console: 75 minutes before the final the opening exploded as if calm and quiet.

Two years without Sean? Daniel Lanois did not lose his hand.

Party with Teke :: Teke

Japanese influential Montreal collective Teke :: Teke performed opposite Daniel Lanois half an hour before him on the symphonic floor. He really put his foot down from the start.

Warning: Even though I spent ten days in Tokyo in December 2019, I do not need to name any songs because I do not know what they mean … I mean, the band in Maya Kurodi is unbelievable so she is never mesmerizing.

Masks, oriental costumes, and background music seem to have been composed for a 1950s Japanese film: the entrance is spectacular. And then who can give us inverted flute solos in a funk musical background?

Who can compose surf-rock guitars (Hidetaka Yoniమాma, Serge Nakouchi Pelletier), a trombone (Étienne Lebel), a flute (Yuki Isami) and a cowboy (Kurodi) in songs composed in 1963 or 2021? ?

I only watched for twenty minutes – the overlap of concerts – but no one was bored.

L ‘Omerta By Michelle Cusen

You are a fan of the television series District 31? Did you say in the 1990s? District 31 Has for name Omerta. Luke Dion’s first major creation, yet.

The music heard and inspired by this cult TV series was provided by guitarist Michelle Cusson for the symphonic floor. From the first bars, the theme of the Festival-Goers series was identified, which was based on flying music, penetrating guitar and Miles Davis-style trumpet.

I feel like a thousand years have passed since I saw the world, Oliver Vanessa (double bass), Dan Thouin (keyboards), Benoit Glazer (trumpet) and his old friend Uzeb, explaining that he was going to propose with Paul Brochu (drums), and after this hunger started Michael Cusen. 19 hours of music composed.

Funk Inspiration, moving music of compositions, cinematographic so we almost saw classic scenes with Michael Cote and Romano Orzari, the experience was perfect.

25 years of Franకోois Bourassa quartet

Early in the evening at the Place des Festivals, Franకోois Bourassa emphasized his quartet’s 25-year career. From the start, the pianist and his colleagues set the tone for the show for over 45 minutes. 15, Our Lady of Lorette, Said the leader.

Start in the form of piano-saxophone dialogue (Andre Leroux) and follow the same kind of discourse, but this time before everything collides between the piano and the double boss (Guy Bois‌vert), Boursa style, of course.

SwirlIn contrast, sometimes more intervals are marked than a continuation with abrupt tone changes. Sequence with a new composition, in which Leroux goes there with his inverted flute Elk. It started slowly, transforming it into one of the most daring compositions heard on FIJM’s public stage for a long time.

At the end, The Blues Bourassa, even 25 years later, has shown that it has never rested on its laurels.
