ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ceci est le premier lancement d’une version française de la chanson populaire « Wildflower », qui a vu ses débuts en 1973 avec Skylark, le premier groupe de David Foster. Karoline Blandin a orchestré et chante le fil vocal ainsi que le fond vocal de cette traduction exquise par la compositrice interprète bien connue, Joëlle Rabu. Fleur Sauvage est produit par Maurice Gainen, qui y ajoute ses nombreux talents en tant que réalisateur, orchestrateur et musicien.

La chanteuse et comédienne Karoline Blandin compte de nombreuses collaborations avec de grands noms de l’industrie musicale et du théâtre de la France, notamment: Johnny Hallyday, Liane Foly, Etienne Daho, Michel Fugain, Mylene Farmer, Michel Sardou et Sylvie Vartan. Karoline a également partagé la scène avec plusieurs artistes internationaux, dont : Gloria Gaynor, Mariah Carey, Julio Iglesias, Sally Nyollo, Ray Lema, Chico Cesar, Joachim Kohln et, plus récemment, Georges Benson dans la revue musicale « Tribute to Nat King Cole ». Elle est aussi célèbre pour ses prestations, autant au cinéma qu’au théâtre, à travers la France et l’Europe. Actuellement, Karoline prépare un disque de musique jazz. Elle va également se produire dans une pièce musicale basée sur la vie de Marilyn Monroe.

‘Fleur Sauvage’ est tirée du disque tout récent de MAURICE GAINEN
“The Sound Of Freedom”

Maurice Gainen, musicien éclectique (saxophones et flute), compositeur, réalisateur et ingénieur de son, est de retour avec son 4e disque en 6 ans. Maurice a engagé, via l’internet, ses talentueux collègues en provenance de partout au monde, pour participer à la production de six chansons originales et plusieurs chansons populaires. Maurice, qui est bien connu dans les communautés musicales de Los Angeles a masterisé plus de 135 compilations pour la collection disquaire de Starbucks.


Karoline Blandin arranged and sings both lead and all background vocals of this exquisite translation by noted Canadian chanteuse/composer Joelle Rabu. The vocalist-actress has recorded and performed with some of the biggest names in French entertainment: Johnny Hallyday, Liane Foly, Etienne Daho, Michel Fugain, Mylene Farmer, Michel Sardou and Sylvie Vartan. She has also worked with international stars including Gloria Gaynor, Mariah Carey, Julio Iglesias, Sally Nyollo, Ray Lema, Chico Cesar, Joachim Kohln and recently with George Benson in his “Tribute to Nat King Cole". She performs as a headliner throughout France and Europe. Currently, she is acting in film and preparing a jazz CD. She will also star in a recording and stage show based on the life of Marilyn Monroe.

This release is the 1st single from the new CD “The Sound Of Freedom” from eclectic flautist, saxophonist, composer, producer and sound engineer Maurice Gainen. It is his 4th CD in 6 years.

TAKES MY BREATH AWAY!
Before today, my French was limited to "croissant," which is a beautiful pastry. I've now added "Fleur Savage," a song which has a beautiful sound. Like so many of the tracks on The Sound of Freedom, this one demands my attention -- in a good way -- and then takes my breath away. Congratulations Karoline and Maurice.

Karoline's soulful and rich voice trandscends the language barrier. I don't speak French and yet, her talent and vocal stylings spoke to me. And the saxophone player was awesome, who is that guy?"
