Wonderful gift today in my inbox: Ne pas compliquer, the version by Axelle Red, just her and her Fender Rhodes, as played live @ De Wereld Draait Door (see below). Mille fleurs pour Martijn!
Because of the high temperatures over here, I get the urge to listen to downtempo music a lot. Like the music made by Thievery Corporation. Rob and Eric (I interviewed them once, fun guys) have a knack for sophisticated jazz (they got me hooked on the CTI-label), dubreggae, bossa and, yes, softsighing French gals. From their album The Richest Man in Babylon (2002), here's Un Simple Histoire, sung by the lovely Lou-Lou.
