New song, New bit on JSM 16 this sunday 4 July

Every Sunday from 1 pm till 4 pm (Paris Time), you can listen three new complete albums in playlist. Indeed on, these pieces are then programmed in the usual program of the radio following their style or origin.

...This Sunday, we addet:

- "Ruby, My Dear" by Richard Galliano

Recorded live in Italy, this program of invigorating music opens on its most sentimental and overwrought note with Thelonious Monk's "Ruby, My Dear. The lushness of Galliano's interpretation may sometimes feel a bit heavy-handed, and if it were placed further back in the program, it would sing a little more truthfully. He uses the accordion to sweep across the melody and works the standard in a number ways. And even if it does sound a bit affected, it orients the listener for an album that consistently outperforms any preconceived notions.
