Pierre Sibille announces the “organic” color of this new album with a hammered groove on the bass pedal of his Hammond. These 15 new titles are the fruit of his work on this legendary instrument, the B3.
This Soul Blues music is a universal language and for this new opus, Pierre has assembled a band of exceptional musicians who “speak this language fluently”: from the blues of Richard Arame to the drums of Moses Patrou, from the sax of Michel Gaucher to the percussions of Jaco Largent… Jon Handelsman, David Walters, Pierre Chabrèle, Henri Dorina, Philippe Jardin, Jerome Buigues, Laurent Menier, Gabriel Equerre, François Gomez, Gérard Murphy, James Powel, Franck Taieb, Christophe Violland… The beat makers Tee Two Mariani and Earl Broadfinger and the voices of Valerie Simpson, Kania Allard and Joniece Jamison. The songs are loaded with encounters and experiences, from “Lou Full of Joy” written for his youngest daughter through “Light in Senegal” in duet with Valerie Simpson, by Claude Lemesle who signs the adaptation of “SmartPhone Blues” (The iPhone girl) meets her with Jack Robinson who writes most of the texts in English… Also note a moving version of “My Comrade” by Léo Ferré.
This album is rich in all that!
