Chelsea - Once Upon A Time…In The Heart - Paris Move
The friends of our friends are our friends, I would be tempted to say because the peaceful atmosphere which emerges from Chelsea's compositions is not only conducive to tranquility but, in addition, acquaintances are partly 'responsible' for the musical parts of the book. This does not spoil anything, on the contrary even, when you hear the opus. And then a little touch of subjectivity can't hurt from time to time. These friends are Dan ‘Boney’ Fields, Nadège Dumas or Karim Albert Kook, among others, for the part recorded in Paris because the other part of the recordings was done in Montreal.
Chelsea has a sultry voice reminiscent of Sting and the boy plays both guitar and keyboards. A particularly warm atmosphere emerges from this opus, between cool jazz tinged with Latin and soft folk, which gives the album a very special character.
I had the chance to see the artist, alone on stage, at the Cinema Jean Vigo in Gennevilliers, during one of the excellent ‘Un Film + Un concert’ evenings this year. It was, it must be said, a concert of very good quality but which was ultimately very different from this galette which is really to be discovered. Chelsea offers you fourteen pieces composed and written by him, surrounded here, unlike his solo performance in Gennevilliers, by players of sax, trumpet, trombone, piano, organ, synth and even accordion. All the ingredients needed to make a really nice galette, in short. A pancake to taste, preferably in the evening, by the fire, a small glass in hand.
