Musical Discovery 2018: Jean-Michel Blais – 2 Incredible Albums!

2018 was an interesting year for music. I discovered from different countries and different musical genres.  The artist whose music captured my attention was Jean-Michel Blais.

The music for the two albums is soothing and relaxing. The composition of the two albums has excellent rhythm. The records Dans Ma Main & Eviction Sessions have songs with a sound that reminds me of the Amazon forest. The piano heard in the songs sounds beautiful. It’s like listening to a symphony, just like attending an orchestra or a musical performance at Place Des Arts.

Brigitte M – Noël Entre Amis – A Classical Christmas Album

Québecois singer Brigitte M released a Christmas album entitled Noël Entre Amis (Christmas among Friends). It’s similar to the classical Christmas music heard on the radio, but with a modern twist. She sings with incredible

The music sounds like traditional Christmas music, in most of the songs. Some tunes have a new take on an original such as the song White Christmas. This version of Bing Crosby classic song, the beat has jazz-like style. The album has a lovely and smooth rhythm. The music is soothing and relaxing.

Brigitte M’s voice is remarkable. She sings in an Opera style, with depth and grace. It was impressive how she sings White Christmas in both English and French. She performs with talented artists including John Francis Wade, Nelson Minville, and more. Their voices complement each other nicely and are in sync with the music.

Noël Entre Amis is an album I recommend for a Christmas party with family and friends.
