✨✧ France GallFrance Gall (1964) ... LP
Philips/Twitchin Beat (Germany), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early work by one of the grooviest singers in the French pop scene of the 60s – the lovely France Gall, working here with some very swinging arrangements from Alain Gouraguer! The grooves are wonderful throughout – sometimes jazzy, sometimes more in a "yeh yeh" pop vein – but always upbeat, lively, and youthful! Gall's voice has a lightly dreamy quality that skips along nicely over the top of the rhythms – not really a little girl mode, given her sense of command on the lyrics – but as cutely flirtatious enough to match the sexy spirit of the record! Titles include "Jazz A Gogo", "Soyons Sages", "Pense A Moi", "La Cloche", "Ca Va Je T'Aime", "Ne Dis Pas Aux Copains", "Mes Premieres Vraies Vacances", and "N'Ecoute Pas Les Idoles".

MayaJazz A Go Go (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Think (Japan), 2015. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Jazz a go go, and Paris a go go too – as singer Maya served up a wonderful tribute to female French pop of the late 60s – done at a level that's mostly jazz-based at the core, but which often hits all the right groovy rhythms to fit the tunes! Most of the lyrics here are in French – although there are a few English language tunes too – and the cool combo in the back uses a cool mix of piano, organ, guitar, flute, tenor, and accordion in shifting ways – all to illuminate the tunes with the right sort of rhythms and instrumental touches, as Maya steps back for modes that recall older work by singers like France Gall, Christiane Legrand, Nicole Croisille, and Francoise Hardy. Titles include "Jazz A Gogo", "Comment T Dire Adieu", "I Will Wait For You", "Paroles Paroles", "L'Amour C'Est Pour Rien", and "Les Champs Elysees". CD
