Just curious if anyone likes Daniel Lanois. I really enjoy his work, and I think his lap steel work is beautiful. I've fantasized about a lap steel duet with him and Steve. Shine is a particularly delicate and gorgeous CD I have had difficulty prying out of my player of late.
I love Daniel Lanois. I've seen him live several times over the past few years, most notably at a medium sized club at the Montreal Jazz Festival. Both times there he was with a sparse 3 piece band - bass, drums and Lanois on electric and lap steel guitars. He gets beautiful rootsy tone from his humbucking Gibsons into what looked like a vintage Vox Ac30. He does use some pedals - I think I recall a tube screamer, Boss chorus, and a volume pedal. His phrasing is just beautiful - plays from the heart, not the head. It would be interesting to hear him and Kimock jam...
I'd love to get my hands on some live stuff. Any idea where?
