The aptly titled Collage is a perfect testament to perhaps the finest guitarist in Canada. Jazz is an umbrella term at best to describe improvisational based music. Canadian guitar phenom Michel Heroux has been quietly working the Montreal music scene for more than a quarter of a century, Collage highlights a virtuoso like ability on electric, acoustic and virtually any genre specific label that can be found lurking between the two. Collage is a musical smorgasbord of harmonic self discovery as Heroux moves from a high octane swing to an introspective and intimate blues and back to a more pop based sound that few guitarists would even consider attempting. The chill acoustic flavor of "Tango" pairs nicely with the blues nasty groove of "October Blues." Six string aficionados should have a field day with this release, a lyrical sense of purpose finds Heroux as technically proficient as he is artistically gifted. Duets, trios and quartets finds Michel Heroux more than comfortable in any ensemble setting. If asked to pick ten guitar oriented releases to take to that mythical desert island, Collage would certainly make the list. One of the most impressive guitarists you will ever hear. One of Canada's best kept musical secrets! Don't believe me? Sample it, better yet buy a copy ! Brent Black / www.criticaljazz.com

Another review of 'Collage' : Here is some of the most sublime music you’ll come across this year. Guitarist Michel Heroux features himself in duets, trios and quartets performing his own luscious pieces on this evocative album. A few of the songs, such as “Easy” and “Valse # 2” are in electric guitar format, but even here the mood is cozy, pensive and tensile. The rest of the time, you have a breezy Brazilian “Namaste”, a sing-songy folk tune “Barcarole” and genteel rhythms on “Lawns.” Quiet strums are palpable on “Ennio” while sounds sashay back and forth on ”Oups!”Delicacy is the name of the game here, with “Tango” and “LouLou” being high water marks of an unforgettable session. Grab it, and put it alongside your Hall, Metheny and de Lucia albums! George W. Harris - Jazz Weekly

Michel Héroux - Lyrics
Lyrics
Montréal, Canada
Here's a review of my latest cd 'Collage' : Michel Héroux is a veteran of the Canadian jazz scene often fusing and blending his jazzy skills with other different styles along the years. He was involved in many projects but now we’re gonna focus on his third solo album. Michel’s latest solo effort is a very comfortable and fluid stream of sound both for the listener as it is for the artist himself. The record is not a full blown jazz record and it is not a fierce onslaught of jazz shred technical frenzy either - as some would expect from a jazz guitar album. It seems like the artist is recording a session of a handful of songs that he’d usually like to play when he’s just chilling and wants to relax on a lazy pleasant evening. So the material is indeed a collage of various sountracks for calm and cool moods. Perfect to listen to on a special night. The songs swing with different stylistic backbones and draw sonic sketches ranging from bossa nova to minimalist ambiental interludes. This is a guitar only record, mostly acoustic. Michel plays everything and does duets with himself. The most striking thing about his technique here is the jazz double bass line emulation of his rhythm guitar part. That’s a really unique and fun approach. He also tries some trios and quartets with himself.Different types of acoustic guitars are played, and besides the songs that range from mellow to some quite technical parts, the different guitar sounds and production type provide a treat and a true delight for those with a trained ear that can appreciate the production and the pure texture of sound. There may be just different miking techniques but some songs sound huge. If you like the detailed sound of the vibrating strings and the slight plucking of strings on the wood surface, then you should definitely check this record for some of the production here. Ennio (prelude) is a breath of fresh air . It is the most different track on here and it sure does stand out. Oddly enough it can really be a favorite for lots of listeners. The few chords that are played can make one remember the fresh flower filled landscape that would only be tailored by some piano chords played by Claude Debussy. This interlude has that delicacy and is filled with charm and musical intelligence. By the second half of the record we get some electric guitar on few songs. These songs rather feel as being composed on acoustic and played on electric. They are not the typical electric jazz guitar tunes you’d normally hear...So grab a glass of wine and unwind or be patient till you get to those song sections where you’d feel like you should find Michel and beg him to teach you guitar lessons. The record has it all, virtuosity, musical delicacy, lounge seduction, you name it… it is the good light jazz sound you want to hear. Score: 9/10 Check Michel’s website and buy the album from here: www.michelheroux.net Audio Clinic - Music Consumer Guide
