françois de roubaix


An uneven collection, the midpriced v/a cd François de Roubaix Chansons de Films(on Universal Music Jazz France, cat. no. 532 292 9) but worthwhile for a few lovely ditties, e.g. that lovely title track of Un peu, beaucoup, passionément(a 1971 movie), with its lovely Brazil touchesAlice Hérald‘s “My sky is blue” (from “Le ciel est bleu”, 1970) is worth the listen too, especially for fans of squeaky clean folk (with female singers), though we’re not talking Jacqui McShee quality either, rather Claudine Longet … The track below (from 2007) is for Air & Serge fans and is based ‘sur le thème de La grande lessive“‘we’ll be playing it on the radio show later on (2009-12-26)!
