"Django emulators, disciples of Crolla, all the strings'royalty was there"nearly three decades since the old man went silent.
Almost everything has been said about the author and the man, very little about the composer. It has already happened that a troubadour took his songs and treats them for what they are: standards. What is new in this disc is that it sheds light on an important part of the musical inspiration of Brassens. All musicians are traveling people, and Christian Escoudé a little more than others, maybe this is why he has captured so well and so clearly expressed this geographical evidence: Sète is not far from Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
