As the title suggests, a set of vocal performances, 18 in all, from the last 15 years of the remarkable Ambiances Magnetiques crowd. One normally associates musique actuelle with avant-garde work in the area between contemporary classical and jazz, but this group of songs comes mainly from the Québécois folk tradition. And if they aren’t classics, pieces like La bombe (Les Granules), Esti qu’est belle ta peau (Nathalie Derome), Trains, Trains (Andre Duchesne) and. P’tit pain (Jean Derome and René Lussier) should be. Beautifully packaged, an aid for the linguistically challenged, and an open invitation, to… chante! 4/5
