"The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes" – Marcel Proust

Jean Leloup

There are days when happiness is very few things. Today, I received by mail (in advance) the last album of Jean Leloup. This new album “À Paradise City” will officially be available Tuesday, February 3rd.

This is his first album in six years, and his eighth of original material in 26 years. It’s rootsy and raw, with country-rock elements supported by its perennial guitar groove, offset by acoustic interludes. Here is a great quote that describe my feeling about Jean Leloup:

Jean Leloup does not exist on the same plane as you or I. The Quebec rocker, troubadour, wanderer, lover of life, semi-reformed reveller, would-be philosopher and general mischief-maker has always floated above the crowd. That, along with a transportive catalogue of songs, has made him a hero in these parts – a free spirit, worn down but never quashed by life’s weight, temperamental and at times troubled but forever bouncing back to go another round.

The least I can say is that I love Jean Leloup. What’s weird is that my 4 children also share this love. For them too, today, it was the party when they discovered the album. A united family. After several listens, my favorite songs are “Les bateaux”, “Voyageur” and “Zone zéro”. In fact, all the songs are good. If you like Jean Leloup run buy this album. The “wolf” is back and in top form.
