Henri Salvador

Henri Salvador died yesterday, age 90. "In his 70-year career, Henri Salvador also gained popularity as a dancer, pantomime artist and TV personality. His musical range included prewar chansons, whispery bossa nova, children's favorites and rock 'n' roll." And his English wasn't bad.

This is a bit late but still :


He died the way everyone should die : He was still living his passion at 90 years old and died while he was still healthy and energic. I will remember his laugh forever.

Not only was his English not bad, but his Italian sounds pretty good too (he's actually talking Italian in that clip).

I am only familiar with: "Jardin d'Hiver" and "Chambre avec vue" ; I think they are wonderful songs! Other artist/song recommendations?

Odacrem, I like Clopin-Clopant too.

Odacrem: Syracuse. This was recorded in public 2 years ago, and his voice was no longer so velvety, but it's still a great song.
