I'm Not a Connoiseur But....

I tend to think of myself as having a variety of music likes and dislikes. Lately, I've been listening to a lot of alternative rock, video game soundtracks, as well as various types of jazz. I was looking for a new direction to take my music collection, when I came upon a CD by Putumayo called "Paris". The CD was okay overall, but I stumbled upon a hidden gem called Ta p'tite flamme by Amelie. I can't speak French for the life of me, but her voice was quite nice. I also enjoyed the musical arrangement. With that said, I looked for more of her music, and the only place I could find it, especially somewhat affordably was here. I listened to the CD, and I would have to say that this is hands down, better than most of the jazz I hear on radio today (besides Sade, she's cool). With every listen of this album, I enjoy more and more. This definitely doesn't deserve 1 star. It's awesome French jazz music!

french chanson...with a twist

come on, people. open your ears. i can't possibly believe anyone would have something less than fantastic to say about this group. it screams paris, but not in the obnoxious way everything else does! it is some smart, cafe au lait-soaked stuff. just open your ears--open your mind--to something marvelous and new, drenched in the classic sense of music that is, essentially, france. or, don't, if you'd rather listen to avril lavigne. i don't think i'll miss you.

6 stars?

One of the best CDs we own. Definitelly well written, with a lot of soul and tenderness. She is competing with the best. Give it a try! You'll fall in love.
