Vocalise by Lise Vachon

Vocalise music has an appeal for everyone. Lise Vachon reveals an inventive patchwork of vocal jazz rhythms coupled with World Music which is definitely worth checking out.

Vachon is without a doubt a fascinating jazz singer able to blend experiences and influences euphonically. In "Yama Neck," an unobtrusive exotic melody sets the mood for Vachon’s vocals like no other. "Octobre" sweetly welcomes guitarist Vito Ricci and poignant trombonist Peter Zummo to reveal a Vachon accurate flute and vocal intonation that suddenly pulls at your heart.

Vocalise is all the way a recreation with a jazzy energy featuring scats and improvisations. Simply put, Lise Vachon delights us with being a nice melody singer, soft and breathy. Her intonation is precious leading to a lounge type ballad singing with light cosmopolitan back beats.

Every track on this disc celebrates an array of distinct ethno-sounds and blazing instrumental traditions with elements of new music and pop but also contemporary jazz.

From "Yama Nekh" to "Marie-Madeleine," Lise Vachon sings in different languages, introducing a forward-looking utterance. Her band soothes over aerial sounds ravished with dewey-eyed innocence, marked by ethereally arranged bridges.

Her entire ensemble joins her on every adventurous phrase as she expresses with a highly original performance. Her beam covers a lot of realms and lively amalgams, wonderfully executed that enchant any soul. That said, this pool has reached a great level of musicianship with the advent of this fresh offspring production.
