Michel Lambert

Primary Instrument: Drums

Born to a family synonymous with classical music in his native Quebec, Lambert studied drums and composition at Boston's Berklee College of Music, attended workshops in Paris, and studied privately with saxophonist/composer Dave Liebman in New York and pianist/ composer Misha Mengelberg in Amsterdam. Since his first professional engagement with pianist/composer Milcho Leviev's trio in 1983, he has recorded extensively and performed throughout Asia, Canada, Europe and the United States.

Accomplished as both a composer and visual artist, excerpts from his first orchestral work, “Le Journal Des Episodes,” were premiered in 1992 by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and his oil paintings earned him a commission from the Canada Council to illustrate a 4-CD compilation of Canadian music to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. He appears on more than 50 recordings and has collaborated with musicians including Paul Bley, Gary Burton, Uri Caine, Franois Carrier, Dewey Redman, Bobo Stenson, Kenny Wheeler and his wife, jazz vocalist/poet Jeannette Lambert....
