If I would like to make the best compliment to the singer, it would be: he has his own style.
You hear him singing, and you do not even to know the song - it's Daniel Lavoie.

«La guitare, c’est out» - Daniel Lavoie

«La guitare, c'est out» - Daniel Lavoie
Daniel Lavoie is very faithful to his habits.  The artist regularly has been  playing poker for 30 years now with the same three guys, indigenous manitobes.
«For 30 years I have`t  stayed in the loser. All too,» - he explains, stating that he does not invest large sums of money like Guy Laliberté and Patrick Bruel, and sometimes he carries! «The last time I took everything,» - he brags. 120 dollars, summarized with «trente sous!» (Thirty sous).
The team of «Studio 12» gathered around him, thinks over about the origin of the expression «trente sous». Someone tells  that the coin actually exists and asks Daniel whether he has the opportunity to see it? «I am old, but not so much» - he replied indignantly.
Daniel Lavoie is certainly not old, but still we know him for very long. First we met with a shy manitobe guy, who played in the bars of Quebec, and then, years later, we loved him as a host of a radio program in the bowels of a huge family d'Espace musique. Meanwhile, he wanted to be simultaneously recognized as the pop star and the artist in France, also the musical star and, no offense will be said, the veteran of the Quebec scene.
Meanwhile, he watching over the younger «with one eye», and they are numerous. Here  is Alexandre Désilets, invited by Daniel to "Studio 12". He performed two songs of Daniel, including «Ils s'aiment», one of his greatest  success. He does it elegantly, with his gorgeous voice, which seems to be hovering over our heads. We are silent and excited by the breadth of his talent.
To update the songs Daniel entrusted the arrangements to Jean-François Groulx. The only one  criteria - two pianos and two trumpets. «The guitar is completely out of the game» - he jokes  with a pretending - demanding tone.Obviously, it`s a great fun to try new ideas with his musicians Ron Di Lauro and Muhammad Abdul Al-Khabyyr. Sitting at «la bête» (piano, designed especially for him), he improvises an introduction to «Je pensais pas», picks up a good speed for «Sauvez» and provides an enhanced interpretation of «Je voudrais voir New York», grinning. «Did you recognize  Porgy and Bess?" - he asks, being proud of the successfully included passage by Gershwin.
«That's enough for today. Tomorrow it will be better,»- he throws his musicians, finishing the rehearsal.
The artist has no idea that «Studio 12» team is going to perform  a little surprise for tomorrow, the day of recording. The director Loue Tremblay knows that he is fond of boxing and therefore invites the champion Jean Pascal to come on stage! Incredible meeting, but it is a pleasure for Daniel. Take a look at the picture, it is worth a thousand words!
