Who are some notable French singers? Yes, there's Edith Piaf, Yves Montand, Charles Aznavour, Serge Gainsbourg, even Brigitte Bardot did some singing. But that was then. In the 1990's, one name came out and that's Patricia Kaas. In her debut album for Columbia, Scene De Vie, Patricia sings torch songs, blues, nightclub jazz to bring about a haunting atmosphere. The CD jacket helps in that the lyrics are printed in French AND in English.
After the haunting instrumental "General Theme", which opens and closes the album, she goes into the bittersweet "Les Mannequins D'Osier" (Wooden Mannequins), about the wish of forgetting the haunting memories, symbolized by the title objects, and thrown off a high bridge. Her voice has a ragged Bonnie Tyler edge when her voice rises, though not as rough, as it does when she sings "Et les regarder passer/sur la riviere gelee" (And watch them pass by/on the frozen river).
It's Jazz Time, or "L'Heure Du Jazz" She handled nightclub style piano blues-jazz very well, and the piano, guitars, double bass, and trumpet bring in that sound. Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, and Kind Of Blue are mentioned in this song, from one A.M., when one's soul reels to the feel of Charlie Parker to 3 A.M., when the last cigarette is smoked, another strawberry champagne is imbibed, and you forget your name.
"Ou Vont Les Coeurs Brises" or Where Do Broken Hearts Go-no, not the Whitney Houston song has a slow melodic sax and piano that recalls Coltrane's albums. At one point, she asks, "Is love in such a hurry/that it always want to leave." The sad and tragic moral is, "Because in the end, broken hearts/still whisper I love you.

Scene de Vie is the first Patricia Kaas album I picked up several years ago in Atlanta. I didn't know anything about her, but I speak French and thought her album was worth a try. I really liked the blend of American-style jazz with that cocktail-lounge sound from the 60s and her smoky, deep voice complemented the lyrics quite nicely. "Regard les Riches", "Ou Vont Les Coeurs Brises" and "Les Hommes Qui Passent" are the standouts on this album. Great music for fans of Celine Dion, Lara Fabian,etc. C'est super!

As a fan of singing in general and Patrica Kaas' earlier work, I was disappointed in this album. Although Ms. Kaas' voice is as seductive as ever, much of the material here lacks the originality or emotional energy required to make the listener want to play the CD again and again. The result is mere "mood music" for which any easy-listening track could be substituted. From a commercial perspective, few if any of the songs have a "hook" that would endear them to the short attention spans of today's radio audience. I would suggest that those interested in Ms. Kaas' music should refer to her earlier works.

I have been listening to Patricia Kaas for several years.She no longer sings with a jazz band backing her awesome vocals.She has given in to Pop music but her songs carry a special meaning to the listener.She had always longed to sing in English and she has.Sexe Fort is beautiful but Scene De Vie is among my favorites.Her sorrow can be heard in Ou se v'on les Coeur Brises? She swings on L'Huerre de Jazz and Les Hommes Qui Passe is indeed every single gal out there.Buy this CD and let Pat's joy and sorrow consume you!
