Blues Au Feminin
Alexis | New York City, NY | 03/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First let me clarify to all that "Blues Au Feminin" means The Blues Of A Woman - songs of women in a "blue" mood. This is not Blues styled music done by women as some may think.

"Ca Fait Mal Et Ca Fait Rien" by Zazie is very upbeat with such a beautiful chorus line. Otherwise most of the tracks are a Jazzy Lounge style, very cool. I really enjoy listening to this cd at home and at work.

"The album is groovy, mellow, breathy French lounge jazz - superb as the background music for a cocktail party, intimate tête-à-tête, or high-quality tome. However, please note, that "Blues Au Feminin" does not carry the deep, gut wrenching emotionalism of JAZZ nor the excessive jubilance of JAZZ, rather, it finds a lounge induced middle road JAZZ that will be perfect for many.

-- Amina's raspy L'inconditonnel Amour sets the relaxed mood from launch.
-- Juliette Grec's romantic L'Amour Flou, carries a nuance of mysterious James Bond 007 swing in its throaty deliverance.
-- Dalida's fun Paroles, Paroles, is a charming melody with conversational male vocal overlays.
-- Ca Fait Ma Et Ca Fait Rien by Zazie, is a poppy jazz tune, very modern, with strumming strings.
-- Youkali's Dee Dee Bridgewater is dark and sultry like a French Diane Krull..
-- LLe Amoureuse, by Helena, sounds similar to soft water jazz.
-- Viktor Lazlo's romantic Mon Legionnaire stuns with simplicity.
-- Maurane's upbeat Touche Par Touche has the strong vocals we have come to love and well as a poignant hard edge.
-- Les Avalanches, is done wonderfully by Jane Birkin, in a very old black and white movie style.
-- Patricia Kaas's Mademoiselle Chante Le Blues, is one of the nicest and freshest jazz with horn compositions on the album.
-- Abbey Lincoln's Avec Le Temps, like a song performed for oneself rather than for an audience, has the smooth soulful feel of Southern jazz that is refreshing and truthful.
-- Ou' Es-Tu Passe Mon Saint-Germain-Des-Pres?, by Nicoletta, belts a voice that beautifully wraps itself around the notes.
-- Nina Simone's, Ne Me Quitte Pas, has the stuttering feel of a warped 1920's vinyl recording that is astonishing. You can see the sound. Possibly the most unique composition on this compilation.
-- Quand On S'Aime, by Nana Mouskouri, is a pleasant stagy end to an intimate CD anthology.

The artists are superstar solid and the "Blues Au Feminin" album stays true to itself: each tune is wonderful and fits well in genre to all the others. None-the-less, several of my friends could not help but wish that the production took more risk in the selection of some of its tunes."
