Belgian and French Geniuses.

Belgian maestro Jacques Brel seemed to set new standards for utterly authentic, heartfelt intensity, every time he took the stage; he seemed possessed, magical. He also created some of the greatest songs of the last century. He served, lastly, as a huge influence to aspiring songwriters/performers…not least of all, Scott Walker. {I included Scott doing “Fils de” at post’s end} A true titan.

Gilbert BΓ©caud. Monsieur 100,000 volts. A truly powerful performer, few {none}{Brel…??} could outdo The Creator. On the above Seul, Gilbert gives an intimate, and increasingly euphoric, reading, culminating in {playful} pianist-shoving and back-slapping, and finally, in blissful embrace, of himself. Monsieur 100,000 Volts was a marvel.

Jacques Dutronc.
Claude François.
Mr. Rod McKuen.
McKuen! “Natalie”.
McKuen! “Come, Jeff”.
Scott Walker: “Sons Of” {Fils de}

Revised: Massively. 7/6/2019.

Titans of Belgian, French, and American Performing. Jacques Brel. Gilbert Bécaud. Jacques Dutronc. Claude François. And, of course: The Rod McKuen.
