Jef Gilson

Chansons De Jazz


Released: 2nd December 2013 | 9 track latin & world jazz album

The French chanson is a song that's as inextricably linked to French culture as crêpes, croissants and cognac. Their poetic, romantic lyrics are set to music that's characterised by following the rhythms of the French language rather than those of English, and have been used as serenades since time immemorial. Even in recent years many French artists, from Édith Piaf to Serge Gainsbourg, have added their own particular gems to the roster. Here is a small yet perfectly formed collection of some little known chansons - with a twist of jazz – produced by French jazzman extraordinaire, Jef Gilson.

This album is a companion disc to our Jef Gilson 'Archives' album JMANLP/CD.063, and is available on 10 VINYL ONLY. No CD, no digital.
