Jacques Canetti Productions presents a collection of classics from the career of painter, poet, actor, and singer Serge Reggiani. Beginning as an actor, Reggiani turned to chanson in 1963 with the help of Jacques Canetti. Accompanied by lyricists Boris Vian, Georges Moustaki, Jean-Loup Dabadie, and Claude Lemesle, among others, he led a distinguished career as an unparalleled actor and singer until his death in 2004. Toujours includes highlights from Reggiani's repertoire, including "Le petit garçon," "Les loups sont entrés dans Paris," "Ma liberté," "Sarah," songs from Reggiani's first album with lyrics by Boris Vian, plus six previously unreleased tracks. The CD also features a spoken tribute to Reggiani by Patrick Bruel, Isabelle Boulay, Carole Laure, Robert Hossein, and Georges Moustaki, as well as Reggiani's thoughts, in the form of his letters, on Édith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Simone Signoret, Romy Schneider, Barbara, Boris Vian, Lino Ventura, Michel Piccoli, and his wife Noëlle Adam Reggiani. Also available as a CD+DVD set (BEC 5772257, 2015).
