If you like Charles Aznavour, you will love this new collection. It contains some of his classic songs, as well as those from a few years ago. One good song is followed by an even greater one, without boredom. Aznavour is a timeless masterpiece, which keeps on perfecting…
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Although admittedly a posthumous release, I was very surprised at the rather dismissive tenor of many of the reviews of this album to date. Hopefully this record will be reappraised soon as being a release worthy of anyone's consideration as I feel it does enhance an already rich legacy left behind by this very fine and innovative band. (So what if Charisma wanted to ride the slipstream of the lucrative ELP juggernaut?)
Essential: A masterpiece of psych-rock music collection.
Vanilla Fudge are a pioneering psychedelic band with a superb lineup and are famous for psyching up well known cover versions. Their debut albums features some of their best and most popular material such as the stunning' You Keep Me Hanging On', 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'She's Not There'.
Charles Aznavour's double-disc Duos album boasts a lot of starpower and a bunch of his greatest hits, but there's less than initially meets the eye here. Sure, a quick glance at the track listing shows a long list of international superstars who team up with Aznavour to sing duets on the album, including Céline Dion, Julio Iglesias, Placido Domingo, Laura Pausini, Elton John, Johnny Hallyday, Nana Mouskouri, Sting, Josh Groban, Carole King, Paul Anka, Herbert Gronemeyer, Liza Minnelli, and Bryan Ferry. Even the late Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin show up for duets. Moreover, the track listing reads like a greatest-hits collection, compiling the classics…
Formidable album with the best french jazzman: Michel Petrucciani, Richard Galliano, Jacky terrasson,Eddy Louis, Pierre Drevet and the collaboration of Diane Reeves. The program aims to revisit Aznavour's song book in jazz form. So here are in great versions "Yesterday, When i was Young", " Mes Emmerdes", "Ce sacré piano", "J'aime París au mois de mai", "Me Voilà Seul", "She" and last but not least "Au creux de mon épaule". This CD combines the softness of the classic French style and the addicting jazz flare to create a very nice CD for any kind of music lover.
