The Marc Vallee Trio Hamadryade Hybrid Stereo SACD
Best High-resolution of 2003 by Soundstage!
This somewhat unusual trio has broken away from the traditional
guitar/base/drum formation. Gravitating around Marc Vallée's acoustic guitar, it
has assembled a repertoire of original compositions only colored by its various
experiences. Folk, jazz, improvisations, etc. Each musician of this trio
cumulate at least 20 years experience in various musical context.
In the Greek mythology, Hamadryade relates to the deity of woods who is born in
and lives in a tree. This was greatly the source of inspiration for this album.
It's a journey in a mysterious and welcoming forest. The rich mixture of sounds
of the acoustic guitar, the didgeridoo, the tablas and the udu conveys all the
warmth of this noble substance.
