Juliette Gréco @ Théatre du Chatelet, Paris Feb 08 2012

Juliette Gréco @ Théatre du Chatelet, Paris Feb 08 2012

Last of her three shows @ Théatre du Chatelet for this French legend of St Germain des Pres.
Serge Gainsbourg wrote "La Javanaise" for her and she had a love affair with Miles Davis.
She's 85 years old and she's still active, maybe her voice is not as strong and melodic as it used to be and she can still deliver but most of all the passion is still there.
She played her most famous songs including songs by Jacques Brel ("Bruxelles, " Mathilde"..) , Serge Gainsbourg ("L'accordéon", "La chanson de Prévert" &" La Javanaise") or Léo Ferré.
She ended her 90 min set with "Le Temps des Cerises"
Nice


It's not very rock but she's a legend of St Germain des Pres
