Biography

Italian singer-songwriter Paolo Conte is famous for his gravelly voice – often compared to singer-poets such as Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen - his elegant and seductive rhythms, melodies and lyrics that sometimes veer towards hot jazz or bar-room tangos. It is a music of memories - half true, half dreams, poetic fragments of colors, images and fantasies.

Born in Asti, Italy, Paolo ... Read more in Amazon's Paolo Conte Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Il 'conte' per piacere! 20 Jan 2004
By Alessandro Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Though I heard Paolo Conte on th radio, it wasn't until the Best Of album that I became a serious listener and admirer of the Lawyer - Singer from Torino. He combines very interesting melodies with beautiful orchestration, a masculine voice and lyrics that make you think. As another reviewer suggested Reveries might be an even better album than "The Best" from 1998. It features re-structured and orchestrated classic hits from Conte's long career like "Dancing", and my personal favorite "Aguaplano". Indeed, I recommend getting the album for that song alone. I also love the melancholic "Paris" and "Chiamami". I've owned this album for over a year and enjoy it every time I listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bzzzzzzzzzzap 1 Oct 2003
By Jim T - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There you are with the latest Conte on the player, relaxing in the recliner, with the headphones on, grooving to Paolo's raspy voice in your ears, and then.....the kazoo cuts in. Instant grin material. Was first introduced to PC on an all jazz FM station when they played Lemon Gelato. Next step was to the library and I was hooked. He is a TALENT! And for those into good performers try Mariza, an upcoming Portugese Fado singer. Another great voice/performer. Happy listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than "Best of" 28 April 2003
By Roman Holliday - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My boyfriend surprised me with Conte's new CD; I didn't even know it was released. It's more mellow, more melodic than the best of, which I love to play in the car while I'm driving around. It's wonderful to sink into the rich melange of tango, Rota, klezmer, and lots of other eclectic sources. I'm still suprised how little known in the US is this composer's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Italy's finest cabaret pop stylist 29 April 2003
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A delightful followup to his previous American release (1998's "Best Of" collection) which shows Conte's continuing playfulness, passion and original and engaging musical arrangements. An immensely appealing performer, whose work is surprisingly and consistently enchanting. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gravelly, gruff, tough, cool, world-wise, and playful old guy 22 Mar 2006
By Frank Camm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Excellent. Not a torch singer or boulevardier as I normally think of one. In no way debonair--less suave, more American. Think Jean Paul Belmondo or Jean Reno. Looser and less midstream pop. Variety of Latin rhythms. European cabaret/Cirque du Soleil settings with just enough dissonance to stay out of trouble. Gravelly, gruff, tough, cool, world-wise, and playful old guy declaiming as much as singing. Stand-outs: tr 3-Dancing (electric tensions hold several layers in sync); tr 15-Diavolo rosso (klezmer cattle drive) [69:04]
