Mark Sullivan offers an April surprise
To welcome in Spring, here is Juliette Gréco in a wonderful performance of Gainsbourg’s ‘La Javanaise’ live on TV in 1991, with Gérard Jouannest at the piano – new on Youtube.
While we wait for the new albums expected in 2015 from Coeur de Pirate, La Grande Sophie and Barbara Carlotti – and CdP’s is not far away now – will any of them be performing their classics at the age of 64, let alone at 86, as here in 2013 at Ramatuelle?
And here is Juliette in her heyday almost 50 years ago, in 1966
with parts of ‘Jolie Môme’ and ‘Un petit poisson, un petit oiseau’ either side of an atmospheric interview, with a glimpse of Georges Brassens. (Though posted by the British Pathe News archive, it is all in French.)
