Janet Seidel: Comme Ci Comme

Sign in to view read count
Australian singer, Janet Seidel, continues her exploration of popular music, this time adding a Gallic touch to the presentation. In fact, several of the tunes on the play list have a French origin, "A Man and A Woman" from the 1966 classic French film of the same name and "I Will Wait for You" from the Umbrellas of Cherbourgsound track. All the tunes are sung in French (like a native) and English and for those who need further help, the lyrics are printed in both English and French in the liner notes.

Like all of her albums, Seidel brings none but the best musicians with her to the studio. The straight ahead alto and tenor saxophones of Bob Jeffrey are present on nine of the 14 tracks and his contributions are significant. Seidel's favorite pianist, Kevin Hunt, continues his sympathetic support and brother David Seidel's bass lays down the foundation along with drummer Billy Ross, who's especially adept with the brushes.

Whatever language she chooses to sings in, English, French or Swahili, Janet Seidel makes any song sound better than it should. This album is another winner for her and is recommended.
