Pierre Lacocque's Mississippi Heat’s 13th album release Madeleine

 

Madeleine is Mississippi Heat’s 13th album. It was recorded and mixed at Chicago’s prestigious V.S.O.P studios and mastered by Paul Blakemore (Nashville, TN). It is co-produced by Pierre Lacocque and Grammy and Blues Music Award Winner Producer/Engineer Michael Freeman. Freeman was the Blues Foundation’s Chair of the Board of Directors. MADELEINE is Pierre and Michael’s 6th collaborative project.

The 12 original songs are written by Pierre Lacocque, with the exception of 2 penned by Michael Dotson (8,11), and 1 by Inetta Visor (12, arranged by Michael Dangeroux). Lurrie Bell, Carl Weathersby, Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith, NADIMA (background singers who worked with Aretha Franklin, Otis Clay and Stevie Wonder), Marc Franklin’s horn section, Ruben Alvarez and other guests add considerably to the vibrant mix.

The new recording sounds pristine and beautiful. [Pierre Lacocque] directs the band with his highly creative, virtuosic harmonica skills, stellar songwriting, and artistic vision. (His) harmonica just soars beyond imagination. So much talent on there!” –LINDA CAIN, Chicago Blues Guide

Wow, congratulations. This is a thrilling album!” –PAUL BLAKEMORE, Grammy Award Winner, Recording/Mastering Engineer
