French chansons and French jazz standards,
as well as songs from Québec, my native province.
William Shakespeare wrote: »Music is the language of love« and some people say »French is the language of love.« I’ve joined the best of both worlds in this program which was created in 2009. I grew up with these songs. Some of them have become well-known jazz standards and evergreens, but a lot of people don’t know that they were originally French. It’s also a ‘back to the roots’. Particularly dear to me are, in my opinion, two of the greatest French Canadian songs ever written:
»Mon Pays« – it tells where I come from, about the soul of my people; and »Quand les hommes vivront d’amour« – about my attitude to this world.
All that is packed in a jazzy acoustic garment that does not need any electronic application. Moving lyrics , moving music : An invitation to dream …
Our CD album »French Temptation« includes 14 selected songs of the complete program.
