Inspired by jazz standards, bassist and composer Pierre Cartier combines the voice of Quebec's poets with new jazz to tackle the theme of love.

Cartier, Pierre
Chansons de la Belle Esperance

Cartier, Pierre: Chansons de la Belle Esperance (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

Prolific bassist and composer Cartier tackles the concept of jazz standards and love songs from a French/Actuelle perspective. Compositions and lyrics are from Guillaume Apollinaire, Michel Garneau, Paul-Marie Lapointe, Gaston Miron, Pierre Perrault and Cartier himself, played by a quintet steeped in the idiom, including Jean Derome, Bernard Falaise, and Pierre Tanguay, with Cartier handling vocals. The results are a compelling set of songs, new jazz standards of familiar form in a new language and with superb playing.

"The title song Dedicace de la belle espérance, features the word espérance, which means much more than simply hope: it actually embraces all hopes, even beyond time, and opens on the realm of love."-Pierre Cartier, from the lyric sheet
