Album Description

Nomination JUNO 2014 – Vocal Jazz album of the year Nomination ADISQ 2013 – Jazz Creation Triades, is a creative project conceived by Sonia Johnson, produced and directed by Alain Bédard of Effendi Records. This unusual album puts forward three artists, passionate about jazz and whose reputation precedes them, Sonia Johnson, Annie Poulain and Charles Biddle Jr. These three singers and authors, as well as their collaborators Claude André and Stanley Péan, have united to perform twelve instrumental pieces from the following Canadian jazz composers: Jean-Pierre Zanella, Joel Miller, John Roney, Alexandre Côté, Rémi Bolduc, Yves Léveillé, Steve Amirault, Dave Watts, Sylvain Provost, Norman Lachapelle. Some of the composers selected for this project inspired the lyricists by sharing their original inspiration or with keywords and reading suggestions. For other pieces, the idea for the story stems from the original title, the personality of the composer or the performer of the new song created. Sometimes sung solo, duo or trio, these singular pieces evoke journeys, friendship, seduction, temptations, wisdom and hope. Pianist Marianne Trudel composed an original piece for the occasion and created sublime arrangements highlighting the singer’s voices. Sonia’s trio is complemented by the superb Morgan Moore on bass and Jim Doxas on drums. Design : Pascal Milette Photos : Alexandre Deslauriers Production: Effendi Records –2012
