Jean and Jeanne


Dutch and Belgian artists revisit Gainsbourg, accordeoniste Jean Corti revisits his days with Jacques Brel, with a little help from young (and not so young) French singers. Like Olivia Ruiz, Thomas Fersen and Jeanne Cherhal. Corti, who turns or has turned 80 this year, (co-)wrote Brel-songs like Madeleine, Les Bourgeois and the anti-bullfight song Les Toros. He worked with Ruiz before, revisiting Serge's La Javanaise in a sweet and very Parisian way. His album is released on Les Tetes Raides own record label. See Jean and Jeanne do Les Toros here.
