ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CHANTAL CHAMBERLAND NOMINATED FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR - CANADIAN SMOOTH JAZZ AWARDS

Chamberland's The Other Woman, makes you fall in love with jazz all over again."
- jazz on the rocks 92.5 FM -

"CHANTAL CHAMBERLAND'S LATEST RECORDING, 'THE OTHER WOMAN' IS A BEAUTY. CHAMBERLAND TAKES A STANDARD AND, WITH THE GREATEST RESPECT & LOVE MAKES IT HER OWN. HER WARM AND SULTRY VOICE ENVELOPES THE LISTENER. PARTICULAR STANDOUTS ARE: "THE OTHER WOMAN", "LA MER", "BY YOUR SIDE" AND "ALL I ASK OF YOU".

Chantal Chamberland. The very name has a lovely musical lilt to it, so perhaps music has always been the destiny of this superbly skilled jazz vocalist. It has certainly always been the life-long passion of the Montreal-raised, Dundas, Ontario-based, Chamberland, and her new CD, The Other Woman, represents the full blossoming of her prodigious artistic talent.

Out now via Universal Music Canada, the disc is Chantals fourth solo release. Her previous albums (2002 s This Is Our Time, 2004 s Serendipity Street and 2005 s Dripping Indigo ) served notice that this was an artist to watch. They received radio play across Canada, notched rave reviews, and brought Chantal a loyal fan base in the U.S..

The Other Woman definitely ups the ante. The mandate of a great voice tackling great songs remains, while Chamberlands decision to take a different approach to the recording pays off handsomely. She recruited acclaimed producer Danny Greenspoon (Jane Bunnett,Sophie Milman, Great Big Sea) and an A-list of Toronto jazz musicians for the sessions, and she is justifiably proud of the results.

- I wanted to bring in a little more variety in terms of the instrumentation and have more of a big band feel,- Chantal explains. - As an artist, musically and vocally, I have to say this is my best album. It showcases my voice the way it should be done, and it showcases the musicians without taking over the vocals.-

Chamberland and Greenspoon set up shop in The Canterbury Music Company in Toronto, alongside such stellar players as drummer Mark McLean, bassist Marc Rogers, guitarist Rob Piltch, pianist Robi Botos, organist Dennis Keldie, cellist Kevin Fox and horn players Phil Dwyer, Perry and Paul White, Guido Basso, William Carn, and Steve McDade. -

On The Other Woman, the compelling results are equivalent to a Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese collaboration. It always helps to have a top-notch script, and Chamberland shows a deft touch in her song selections. Such much-loved jazz standards as On The Street Where You Live and In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning nestle snugly alongside French songs (La Mer and the bilingual I Wish You Love) and contemporary tunes like Sharon Washingtons Little Wonder, Sades By Your Side and All I Ask Of You (from Phantom Of The Opera).

The result is a refreshing diversity of tempo and tone, and Chantals vocals move from sultry and soulful to bluesy and brassy with graceful ease. No vocal histrionics here, just a subtle yet always sincere take on material that resonates in her heart and soul.

Chantals stylistic eclecticism comes naturally. She cut her musical teeth singing rock in Montreal bars (while still underage), then gained prominence in an acoustic folk-rock duo that shared stages with the likes of Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan. After taking a break to reassess her musical direction, she began singing jazz in fine dining establishments in Ontario.

Encouraged by the response from her audiences, Chantal recorded This Is Our Time, and the positive reaction it received confirmed she was on the right track. A triumphant 2004 appearance at the Montreal International Jazz Festival showed that this charming entertainer was equally at ease in front of a crowd of 100,000 as in an intimate supper club, and there has been no looking back.

A 2006 return to the Montreal festival was another hit, and La Belle Province has proven a very welcoming market for the fluently bilingual Chamberland. Closer to her current home, Chamberland won a Peoples Choice trophy at the Hamilton Music Awards in 2004, while Toronto shows at Hughs Room and the 2008 Toronto Jazz Festival have demonstrated that, in a city crammed with female jazz singers, there is always room for one this talented.

With the release of The Other Woman, look for the ascent of this rising star to accelerate. Prepare to be seduced.

What A Voice!
The CD's just keep getting better and better! I loved this one for its uniqueness. The style of singing and the type of songs are different from the previous CD's, but shows Chantall's wonderful diversity. We saw your CD's on display at the Triangle Inn in Sante Fe, and then discovered that you are something of a regular there. What a great surprise. Keep singing!
