Musician

Edith Piaf

Born:

Edith Piaf (December 19, 1915 - October 11, 1963) was one of France's most beloved singers, with much success shortly before and during World War II. Her music reflected her tragic life, with her specialty being the poignant ballad presented with a heartbreaking voice. The most famous songs performed by Piaf were La Vie en Rose (1946), Milord (1959), and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien (1960). She was born Édith Giovanna Gassion in Paris, France; her mother worked as a cafe singer and her father was a well-known travelling acrobat. Abandoned by her mother, she was raised by her paternal grandmother, who ran a brothel in Normandy

Musician

Alexis Tantau

With extensive training as classical singer and having sung with various opera companies locally and abroad, it came as something of a surprise when the door to the world of jazz swung wide open for Miss Tantau less than two years ago. Planning to specialize in French art song and opera, she took several trips to study in France, including a year to study Occitan, the endangered language of her ancestors. Over the years, she took her teachers’ suggestions to sing Edith Piaf songs lightheartedly—until she began landing more gigs singing Piaf than Bizet! Her highly-sought renditions of famous French songs by the likes of Edith Piaf, Eartha Kitt, and Charles Trenet wonderfully compliment the WWII era vibe of the Hot Club, showing off her lustrous vocal timbre, and delicious French diction.

Both are the Latin equivalents of African American blues: intense, cathartic expressions of anguish with, in their traditional forms, precious little light at the end of the tunnel. ...
