Lester Quitzau

So Here We Are - 2002

Lester Quitzau not a common name for a Canadian and a guy whose immense talents and a guitar-player and singer are equally uncommon. Known also as the blues and slide guy in the wonderful TRI/CONTINENTAL guitar trio, Quitzau has been a very successful solo artist in his native Canada as well and this is his third solo record already. He received a JUNO nomination for the last one. Recorded with his "Very Electric Trio", this new album shows all the different talents of this fantastic player. Blues clichs are absent here. Instead you get authentic blues/roots music with an abundance of sensitive playing, a great groove and lots of emotion. Lester Quitzau the name is synonymous with intensity and feeling. This is blues based roots music in the classic Ry Cooder vein but different!
