Album Notes
Originally from Québec City, Vancouver-based musician André Lachance has been known for 25 years as a first-call acoustic and electric bassist on the Canadian jazz scene. He is also an accomplished guitarist, composer and bandleader in his own right. In 2017 he celebrates the release of the first CD under his name and leadership, The Orange Challenge, featuring his regular group Quatuor André Lachance, his original compositions and melodic guitar playing.

The project was founded in 2010 in Vancouver although the members have been playing music, recording and touring together for over 23 years in one formation or another, and on various instruments (Brad Turner Quartet, Chris Gestrin Trio and many others). The musicians are André Lachance on guitar and compositions, Brad Turner on Fender Rhodes and piano, Chris Gestrin on Moog synthesizer bass and Joe Poole on drums. The group has been regularly featured in the Vancouver International Jazz Festival over the years and many other performances around Vancouver.

The group’s approach is eclectic, electric, improvised and interactive and draws from their collective experiences in modern jazz as well as progressive rock, pop, improvised music and ambient electronic textures. Of particular note is the variety of sounds provided by Gestrin’s playing on the Moog, covering the bass parts and also at times a much wider palette of soundscapes. ’The Orange Challenge’ is the coming together of four strong voices, old friends and each member's personal journey and experiences in the music world that create a truly unique group sound.

Hope you enjoy the music!
