Album Review

Fontaine, Brigitte – “Est Folle” – [Superior Viaduct]

humana   1/6/2014   A Library, CD

This re-release of Fontaine’s second album (first released in 1968) is full of the whimsy and carousel-feel you would expect from a cabaret singer (which is what Fontaine was). Her voice gives off that theatrical training that preceded her musical training, and the irony and humor comes through even if you don’t understand French. The liner notes help with the background of the musician/actress and her colleagues on this CD. Listening to the rollicking melodies takes you to a Parisian avenue where your attention is happily distributed among countless distractions. Have a fun trip!
