Original title for an original music of the two best known jazz bassists in Quebec and even in Canada.
An album featuring serious sounds of course, but colored percussion since three percussionists and a drummer add on a few pieces, and they are not the least.
The Labrosse brothers, excellent percussionists from Quebec, many of which are on the album, Don Alias, a famous American percussionist who rolled his bump around the world with Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, David Sanborn and Jaco Pastorius, and finally Paul Brochu, drummer of UZEB, who for pleasure and friendship, came to lend a helping hand to his companions Alain and Michel on “Lower East Side”.
Eight original pieces by Alain Caron (“Black and Blue”, “Cado”, “Lower East Side”, “Missing You”, “Grand Cafè”, “Sunny Road”) and Michel Donato (“RB”, “Good Morning”) and two standards, “Django” by John Lewis and “A Child is Born” by Thad Jones, compose this album of collection where our two antagonists (basse contre basse) make us discover particular harmonies and still unsuspected.
An audacious album, which was recorded at Studio Victor by Yves Daniel and directed by Alain Caron.
“Basse Contre Basse” contains 10 tracks for a total 50 minutes
