5.0 out of 5 stars
A very great artist, 22 Feb. 2004
I must frankly admit that I bought this CD quite by chance, not at all knowing what it would be like...
What an amazing discovery ! The entire album is just enchanting, and I cannot find the right words to decribe it. It says a great deal about the unbelievable versatility of this genial performer, who can sing just about anything, from rock'n'roll to swing music from the nineten-twenties and thirties , as this recording so well demonstrates...
Bryan Ferry is also accompanied by some highly talented musicians.
(Particularly interesting is the use of "Ondes Martenot", also used by the great Jacques Brel in some of his early recordings).
This album is a gem and should appeal to a great variety of listeners - not only Bryan Ferry fans, but also those millions of perhaps slightly older people who still enjoy that beautiful, nostalgic music.
Buy it: I hope you enjoy it as much as I did !
