A collection of little known chansons -- with a twist of jazz -- produced by French jazzman extraordinaire, Jef Gilson. Available only on 10" vinyl, this album is a companion disc to the Jef Gilson Archives album (JMAN 063) and all tracks are exclusive to this release. Classic Gilson '60s repertoire with rarely heard vocal performances, this is sublime, sexy and seductive chanson jazz with a distinctly French flavor, some previously-unreleased songs, sung by obscure (or unknown) chanteuses inspired by Brigitte Bardot, France Gall and Francoise Hardy. The French chanson is a song that's as inextricably linked to French culture as crêpes, croissants and cognac. Their poetic, romantic lyrics are set to music that's characterized by following the rhythms of the French language rather than those of English, and have been used as serenades since time immemorial. Even in recent years many French artists, from Édith Piaf to Serge Gainsbourg, have added their own particular gems to the roster. Includes comprehensive and detailed liner notes with information on each track in English and French.
