Véronneau – Joie de VivreOctober 4, 2011 / No Comments / Tags: David Kline, David Rosenblatt, Jeff Antoniuk, Ken Avis, Lennon and McCartney, Lynn Véronneau, Pete Walby, thejazzpage.com, Véronneau
Virginia-based Véronneau draws its name from its tremendous lead French-Canadian singer Lynn Véronneau, who possesses a beautifully-haunting, resonant voice. She’s supported by a talented band, which includes Ken Avis on acoustic guitar and additional vocals, David Rosenblatt also on acoustic guitar and Pete Walby on drums. The group artfully weaves through a cross-section of tunes, from Brazilian to traditional and pop standards, from the likes of Lennon and McCartney, Lerner & Lowe, Luis Bonfa and Jobim, doing so with the telepathy of a group of musicians who’ve worked together for many years. Violinist David Kline and saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk make terrific guest appearances on several tracks. This is a band to watch for, listen for and very much enjoy.
