Pillac is one of those select few French artists capable of breathing new life into the blues heritage. The outstanding quality of his work is the result of ten years of ardent labor, the fruit of Xavier Pillac’s total commitment to an art form the Blues Muse lay at his feet at an early age. Pillac mixes blues, funk and soul (in full horn regalia) with astonishing savvy in this self-titled opus. An essential album for all blues aficionados.

Banda de blues contemporáneo, moderno y eléctrico con fuertes dosis de funk y un más que aceptable sonido. Este grupo francés está formado por Xavier Pillac, que lidera la banda, como puede verse por el nombre del grupo, a la guitarra y voz solista, Cedric Le Goff, Hammond B-3, piano Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer y coros, Alain Baudry, batería, percusión y coros y Antone Escalier, bajo y coros. A ellos se suman una estupenda sección de vientos en algunas canciones, formada por Vincent Aubert trombón, Sylvain Fetis saxos tenor y barítono y Franck Bougier trompeta. La banda interpreta diez cortes excelentes, realizados con unos unos tempos, una frescura y una intensidad impecables. Actualmente Pillac son uno de los platos fuertes del blues francés, ya que dominan bien la escena y hacen de su música una referencia lúdica para todos los buenos aficionados del país galo. A lo largo del disco hay momentos sobresalientes y gloriosos, incluso me atrevería a decir que perdurarán por mucho tiempo en la mente y el corazón del oyente. BUENISIMO.
