Michel Lambert
Born to a family synonymous with classical music in his native Québec, Michel Lambert studied drums and composition at Boston's Berklee College of Music, attended workshops in Paris and studied privately with Dave Liebman and Misha Mengelberg. His first professional engagement was with Milcho Leviev's trio in 1983, and since then he has recorded extensively and performed throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia with musicians like Gary Burton, Dewey Redman, Kenny Wheeler, and Uri Caine among others. A self-taught visual artist, Lambert was awarded a commission to illustrate a 4-CD Canadian compilation to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. Excerpts from his collection of 366 short orchestral works based on his own drawings, entitled "Les Journal Des Episodes," were premiered by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in 1992.
