WFMU Playlist and Archives

Transforming iconic French anarchist poet/singer Georges Brassens into an English-friendly form is composer/singer/songwriter Pierre de Gaillande's (The Snow, Melomane) latest musical venture. Pierre has translated a collection of Brassens' songs, strictly adhering to the rhyme scheme, meter, and meaning of the original texts, while preserving their flow and lyricism. He's recording an album of Brassiens' songs, keeping to the pared-down, simple yet undeniably catchy arrangements of the originals. Pierre de Gaillande was joined by bassist Christian Bongers, clarinetist Christian Spinley and flautist/ xylophonist/ charango player Quentin Jennings, playing a number of those songs live for the WFMU listeners.

Thanks. Loved these tunes. The 'american' (?) vocal really updated Brassens' music and it was all very adeptly put together.
Excellent work!
