12 tracks on the program of this album where the warm, singular voice of Michel Avallone marries the virtuoso playing of the Quebec cellist Stéphanie Meyer in a string string set (Guitar -Cello- Ukulele) which gives the work of Jean Ferrat a brilliance, an "embellishment" of the most enthusiastic.
Claude Delrieu comes to color this opus with his multiple talents as accordionist, bassist, electric guitar, synth, percussion ...
From Ma France to L'embellie, La matine, La complainte de Pablo Neruda, A Santiago, L'Idole à Papa, ma môme, un jour un jour... here is a walk in this poetic, popular, humanist, committed painting.
A different approach in the way of musically arranging the songs makes it possible to rediscover and appreciate all the more the melodist talent of Jean Ferrat.
Waltzes, syncopated rhythms, voice-cello duo, classical, jazz, tango accompany with respect and talent these magnificent texts. A harmonious album, all in color.
