Product Description & Reviews
VARIOS INTERPRETES FRENCH CAFE Although far from definitive (no Edith Piaf in sight!), this enchanting compilation delivers a perfect aural snapshot of what spending a late summer afternoon in a French cafe actually feels like. The supreme elegance and understated approach that lie at the core of these 13 tracks will delight fans of sophisticated pop. As is the case with previous Putumayo releases, the sequencing is seamless, combining the endearingly old-fashioned flavor of George Brassens with the iconoclastic romanticism of George Gainsbourg and the sultry whispers of a youthful Brigitte Bardot. Better yet, the disc spends some valuable time introducing listeners to a new generation of French musicians who have embraced the traditional chanson format while incorporating fresh elements into the mix. Try the light-as-a-feather caress of female vocalist Enzo Enzo, the sweet playfulness of the electronica-informed Mathieu Boogaerts, and the irrepressible optimism of Paris Combo--a jazzy quintet that represents the French cafe ambiance at its cosmopolitan best. --Ernesto Lechner

On three studio records and a double live, Paris Combo has sketched out its own unique world, establishing itself as one of the most piquant, intriguing groups in French song. Sung in French, Motifs is the groups 5th album. With a sound made up of equal parts bossa nova and classic chanson transported almost unchanged from the 1960s, plus American jazz, Argentinean Tango, bal musette and the Manouche swing made famous by Django Reinhardt, Paris Combo undeniably personifies that city's
Coralie Clément, the tri-lingual french pop singer (she records in French, English, and Italian), took a playful approach on her third album, Toystore. Backed by a montage of toy instruments (ukulele, pennywhistle, pocket comet, alto half-violin, slide-flute, Melodica, maracas, shaker, xylophone, baby Farfisa) Clément's breathy, enticing voice is appropriately and amusingly disconcerting when singing lyrics such as: 'That's the life, that's the life we lead. Sedatives and cafe creme' on
