Jane BirkinDi Doo Dah (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fontana/Light In The Attic, 1973. Used ... $7.99
Sweet sweet work from Jane Birkin – an early solo set that steps strongly off of her classic duets with Serge Gainsbourg! In a way, this album's as much a record by Serge as it is by Jane – since Serge wrote almost all the tracks, and since the arrangements are handled by the legendary ... read more CD

Excellent vocal jazz from postwar Paris!

Dee Dee BridgewaterJ'Ai Deux Amours ... CD
Verve/DBB Recrods, 2005. Used ... $7.99
A beautiful love letter from Dee Dee Bridgewater to her adopted home of Paris – sung in French, and with a feel that's quite different than much of her recent work!

Philips/Club Dial (France), 1962. Used ... $6.99
Serge's 4th album – and another wonderful gem from his early years! The record's like some of the others from the time, mixing together jazz, Latin rhythms, and all the offbeat existentialism of the postwar Paris scene. The record was originally only ever issued as a 10" LP – and ... read more CD

Universal (France), 1950s. Used 3CD ... $19.99
A wonderful package – and one of the first strong collections of the work of Henri Salvador! Salvador was a key figure in the postwar jazz scene of Paris – a strong vocalist who often accompanied himself on guitar, with a range of strengths that worked equally well on mellow ballads, ... read more CD

Henri SalvadorRoom With A View (aka Chambre Avec Vue) ... CD
Source/Blue Note, 2000. Used ... $8.99
A beautiful album of French bossa nova tracks – sung by vocalist Henri Salvador, and backed with some light jazzy guitar and piano, very much in the style of backings you'd hear on a classic album by Joao Gilberto. Salvador's voice is wonderful – with that warm, honest quality you'd ... read more CD
