The French Actress Turned Singer Delivers the Goods on this Amazing Album. She Grew Up in Mexico Where her Father Served as the French Ambassador and the Time There Made a Big Impact on her Musical Taste. Thus it was Only Natural that She Include a Selection of Boleros on this Debut, Just One of Many Styles of Music that She Feels at Home with and Delivers them with Ginger Care. "lt Us Be Excessive in All, Even in Reserve" as She Recalls that the Mexican Bolero Has French Origins. Dombasle Had About 50 Songs She Wanted to Record for this Album and that List was Whittled Down to the 14 that Appear Here. The Result is a Wonderful Cross of Spanish, French and American Standards Performed with the Grace and Passion that She Has Displayed on the Big Screen for Over 25 Years.
Here is Arielle, backed by a wonderful orchestra that sounds straight out of yesteryear as she sings old pop standards in Spanish and English, yet manages to make them all sound French! It's the stuff old hollywood musicals are made of, and the musicians play noticably lovely arrangements while never overpowering Arielle's soft and very effeminate French vibrato. The mood of this album is an unmistakably sensuous, romantic rondezvous for lovers as much as it is a beautiful European escape for the infinite dreamer who wishes to travel abroad.
The best songs on here are "Quien Sera (Sway)," which I have recently also heard by Rosemary Clooney in a more Cuban style, "Perfidia," the fun old wartime song "Rhum and Coca-Cola," which won't leave your brain for days once you hear it, "Quizas, Quizas, Quizas (the version with Julio Iglesias)," but my absolute favorites have to be the gorgeous and heart-searing delivery she gives "I Wish You Love," which has to be one of the sweetest and most beautiful old pop standards I have ever heard, and the short, but sexy, and nostalgic "Whispering."
I must also commend Thomas Gizolme for the beautiful and nostalgic photography of this petite, yet grand on so many scales, talented beauty that so fits the atmosphere of this beautiful album. Lyrics are also included, and I love the fact that this time, she has sung a lot of them in espanol since I know some. If you love these wonderful old songs and want some decent versions of them, invest in Arielle's gorgeous Amor Amor. She does them, with a French attitude, the way they were meant to be performed.
This covers album, sung mainly in Spanish and often English in a French Style (confused?) is a beautiful, quaint and relaxing album, which often reminds me of the music from the fantastic French cartoon / film `Belleville Rendezvous'. Highlights include `Amor Amor', `Rhum and Coca-Cola' (and upbeat but relaxed Rhumba sung in English), `Pefidia', `I Wish You Love'and you should look out for the `Quizas, Quizas, Quizas' (Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps) at the end of the cd which is a duet with Julio Iglesias.
NB: for those who remember the series `Lace' in 1984, Arielle is the French actress!
And a special mention for the beautiful inner sleeve, filled with stunning and evocative pictures and lyrics.
"Who told her she could do a latin album??"...well.who told her..she...couldn't ..is more to the point.
Rather than an overpowering assault on the rhythms with a 12 piece Mariachi gaggle fresh from a 6 Margarita lunch, a sitting with this album is like being allowed to sit quietly in the corner, in the boudoir of a famous courtesan and listening to her gently hum and calmly sing while she dresses for a dinner somewhere in the Left Bank...and you hold your breath praying she won't notice you because you know you'll be tossed.
In order to enjoy the complete fantasy, don't fall prey to imposing Celine's vocal standards here.
