It's a french minor blues about the meeting of a guitar and a saxo.

Excellent!
I wish I had aid more attention in school so I could understand the lyrics but it made no difference as I really enjoyed that.

A good tune too, as it is stuck in my head now. laugh

Welcome to the forum!

Salut Chris.

Bonjour et bienvenue.

Great track. You managed to create an excellent blues, but still retain a French feel to it.

Got a lot of the lyrics on first listen and just going back for a second. Maybe you could list the lyrics on future posts to make it easier for us Brits.

Good choice of RTs and a great vocal, together with a nice mix. Looking forward to more.

ROG.

For those who whant to read the french lyrics, here they are :

1) Au pays des notes bleues,
un petit blues mineur
délivre à qui en veut
un peu de sa chaleur.
Dans le jardin des sons,
se balade une guitare.
Fleurs bleues à l'horizon,
Elle en boit le nectar.

2) Ce blues attire alors
un saxophone alto
butinant les accords,
voguant sur le tempo.
Au pays des notes bleues,
découvrant cette couleur,
le saxophone curieux
a trouvé son bonheur.

3) Dans le jardin des sons,
saxophone et guitare,
planant sur cette chanson
ont largué les amarres.
Ils sont montés très haut
comme le font deux rêveurs
partageant le solo
d'un petit blues mineur.

Bonsoir Chris,
Welcome to the forum. This is a nice first post ! The blues sound authentic and the French lyrics work for me. Being Belgian I understand them to. Very original to write about the blues itself!
Happy winter days!
Fred

Hi Chris,

welcome to the forum! Nice tune. It's no blues but nice chord changes. French lyrics are a welcome change.
Happy New Year.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

The blues has no cultural or language barriers.

Excellent!

Formidable! A very cool sounding tune, with clever lyrics. PG Music sure has some hot guitarists in the box. Fun to get some French practice too.

This song is very original but it certainly plays to French stereotypes -- could it be that even the musical instruments in France are... amorous?

Merci bien!
Bruce
