French Cafe

Coffee, croissants, a small table, a white table cloth, a crowd of people, decent weather, good music - and the atmosphere turns purely French! And since our tracks have a distinctly Parisian bias, think of sitting in Les Deux Magots, probably Paris' most famous café, watching the world go by, or listening to the buskers on the Boulevard Saint-Germain or the 'Boul'Mich', or even think of dinner at Maxime's, a citron pressé, a glass of wine - and through this wonderful music we are transported to a different world. The world of the French café: accordions, small dance bands, witty singers, sophistication and style with that special 'je ne sais quoi' that marks out most things French!

This selection of song by some of the greatest popular French singers of the twentieth century is light-hearted and fun. Yves Montand's wit contrasts with the pathos of Piaf and the sophistication of Chevalier and the good humour of Jean Boyer. So make the coffee, sit down and relax!
