This CD is highly recommended. The selections are all very upbeat and well orchestrated. I really like every single piece of music on this disc.

Format: Audio CD
Why is it so easy to sound cool and seductive when singing in French? The language seems to demand a dulcet, husky singing voice that implies the song was composed, practiced and recorded in a bed.

Packed with some of the best, chilled French café songs of the moment, Paris is this summer's essential for barbeques, soirées, dinner parties or possibly just for those hot nights in.

From Coralie Clément singing seductively about the "Samba de Mon Coeur Qui Bat" to the equally seductive Carla Bruni's "Quelqu'un M'a Dit", Keren Ann's "Jardin d'Hiver" -- which she whispers rather than sings -- and Karpatt's caressed and tapped acoustic guitar, this is a compilation of class and smooth charm.

While Paris recalls the heyday of French chanson it is a thoroughly modern mix from the nouvelle scène. It's entirely easy listening -- nothing from the outer reaches of French culture here.

Part of the proceeds from each CD sold goes to Terre des Hommes, who support disadvantaged children around the world, so you can feel good about your purchase while humming along to the catchy tunes.

SIX STARS IF I COULD.... Sept. 20 2006
By R. Penola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was shopping for some cards the other day and heard delightful music and a Frenchman's lilting voice singing playing the store - followed by an equally gorgeous woman's voice singing French pop. I lingered through about 5 songs, long enough to know I NEEDED this CD. There is not one cut on this expertly chosen collection that is not fantastically melodic and beautiful, and all of the artists are great. And you will have no problem translating the French into something emotional - warmly appealing - even if, like me, you can't speak a word of it. I love this album and have listened to it several times every day since I bought it. Now I'm planning a trip to Paris...as soon as possible!

Nouvelle French Chanson Thrives in the Global Village May 21 2006
By Ed Uyeshima - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a sequel of sorts to last year's catchy throwback to French chanson, "French Cafe", a new collection of cafe-style chansons has been released by the world music label Putumayo but this time solely with contemporary singers inspired by the likes of Serge Gainsbourg and Edith Piaf - a movement called appropriately "nouvelle chanson". The result is pleasing and sometimes quite luminous but often lacking the wine-soaked gravitas of the original artists from the 1950's and 60's. As compensation, these artists seem to embrace the world music scene with enthusiasm as they easily incorporate sounds that would seem at odds with the Gallic-centric music.

On "Au Cafe de la Paix", Thomas Fersen starts things off with a deceptively buoyant tune that describes a man waiting at a cafe for a woman who never comes. Coralie Clement brings a Brazilian bossa nova backbeat to "Samba de Mon Coeur Qui Bat", as Pascal Parisot does similarly to his ennui-filled "Je Reste Au Lit", which sounds like it would fit right in on the Riviera circa 1965. A nice gypsy jazz feel pervades both Karpatt's "Dites Moi Tu" featuring guest singer Fleur, and Paris Combo's "Lettre A P...", a downbeat waltz with an effectively muted trumpet underlining singer Belle du Berry. Cara Bruni's folkish "Quelqu'un M'a Dit" is a high point with her breathless lyrics wafting over a strumming acoustic guitar.

Global vibes abound with Keren Ann, who lends a darker, Latin-tinged tone to "Jardin D'Hiver", and Myrtille, who seems to bring a whole third world beat to "Les Pages". Sounding like a Gallic version of Men at Work, Tryo performs "Serre-Moi" with jaunty fervor. There are a couple of songs that border on the strange. Preque Oui's "L'ongle (The Fingernail)" is an odd little track about the personal remnants lovers leave behind, while the circus has apparently come to town in Amelie-Les-Crayons' "Ta P'tite Flamme" with a sad accordion accompanying her forlorn vocal. Aldebert ends the disc with the hopeful, country-twanged "Carpe Diem". It's quite a hodgepodge but one that works well together as a collection, providing ample proof that French chanson is here to stay. As with "French Cafe", Putumayo has included an informative booklet that gives a thumbnail sketch of each artist and describes the genesis of each song.

A great introduction to the Putumayo series June 21 2008
By E. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
PARIS is the first compilation in the Putumayo series that I really took a shine to. The first cd in the series I heard was ARABIC GROOVE earlier this year but I was bored with it. It wasn't until the PARIS compilation did I realize how great Putumayo series is.

PARIS is a delightful compilation of Parisian music from the Nouvelle Scene (new scene). When I listen to the cd, I feel like I am sitting outside of a Parisian cafe. The music is very mellow. It is a mix of folk and pop with a French twist. Although I do not understand the French language, I nevertheless love listening to the language the artists sings in. One of my personal favorite songs on the album is "Quelqu'un M'a Dit" by Carla Bruni, the latest wife of France's president. Normally I get turned off when models try to sing (or act) but with Carla she surprised me by showing that she is more than a capable artist. I also enjoyed the songs by Coralie Clement and Aldebert in particular. There is not a single track on the album that I didn't like.

Contemporary Cafe April 25 2008
By Nancie Paquin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
How fun is this? Contemporary groups doing cafe music in the "apres la guerre" style. Loved this album.
I'm a French-American gal and speak fluent French, but you don't have to to enjoy this CD.
Put it on, have a cafe, and simply pretend you are in Paris.
