For all Francophiles,
This review is from: Arabesque (Audio CD)
I watched the concert 'Arabesque' on TV & was blown away by the mix of Jane Birkin's fragile, sensitive voice & the arabic rhythms of the backing musicians. I know little of Serge Gainsborough except the famous 'Je t'aime' & this selection have made me realise what a huge talent he was. I love the natural, unpretentious rendering of these songs. Who needs slick production when you can enjoy the raw talent on offer here? I urge anyone who loves France & its culture to buy this CD & if possible to get the DVD to watch Jane perform so touchingly. This CD is full of the pathos & 'joie de vivre'of a life fully lived.
