Various Artists – Café de Paris – 40 Classic French Café Songs (2014)

FrontCover140 essentialrecordings evoking the charm of Paris´ café s and boulevards.

Over two hours of timeless songs and classic instrumentals featuring Maurice Chavalier, Edith Piaf, Tino Rossi, Jean Sablon, Juliette Gréco, Josephine Baker, Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and more …

A marvellous compendium of classic French recordings. I admit to being obsessed with France, its’ culture and its’ history. This set has been “played to death” since it arrived. I challenge any lover of France and French life to listen to this in the garden on a warm summer evening with some wine and cheese, and for them to not be mentally transported to a culture and way of life so different to the UK.

But: I have to dedicate this entry to all the victims of the terror attack yesterday on Friday, the 13th.

TerrorInParis02Let´s listen to this music as a sign of hope I know I´m a dreamer, but I´m not the only one
