Patricia Kaas
Piano Bar
Columbia

By Paul-Emile Comeau

Published February 17, 2006

French singer Patricia Kaas isn't very well known in North America, except in Québec, but she is very successful in Europe, and most especially in France. Although some of her previous albums included a few songs in English, on this album Kaas sings mostly in English, even though it isn't the first time that she has recorded in England with British musicians. Piano Bar isn't a soundtrack but the album is a collection of songs that appear in And Now...Ladies And Gentlemen, the latest Claude Lelouch film, in which Kaas stars, along with Jeremy Irons. The album consists mostly of English versions of French standards that are known around the world, including "Autumn Leaves," Brel's "If You Go Away," Bécaud's "What Now My Love," Trenet's "I Wish You Love" and "La Mer," Aznavour's "Yesterday When I Was Young," Legrand's "The Windmills Of Your Mind," and half a dozen more. Except for an awkward version of "Un Homme et une Femme," the lush production works reasonably well in spite of being too modern for a real piano bar.
