This is a good CD when I'm in an active with gardening, "house cleaning" or "fast-paced cooking" mode, including driving on the freeways. If I want to enjoy a sunny afternoon and relax by the pool, I do not play this particular CD. Perhaps the cover picture tells us that he is very happy and delighted and we should be kicking up our heels dancing. Yes, that is a good idea with the songs on this CD. I tend to enjoy other French musicians more such as JP Nataf, Carla Bruni, Karen Ann, Rose and Patrick Bruel so these examples show that I enjoy a bit more of a subdued rhythm section.
