Fait en Californie
This is a wonderful album of beautiful french traditional music, worthy of the library of anyone who loves acoustic music played well. The arrangements are excellent, as are the musicians. This is a must buy for anyone who loves traditional music, acoustic music, or just plain 'sutiable for any age' type tunes.
