ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Close your eyes, open your ears: you are in the same time in Brazil, Belgium, France, and also in California. Benoit Mansion's challenge is to gather on this album his three passions : French Song, Bossa Nova, and Jazz.
The meeting of the musicians around his writing seasons it with a blend of exotic and indigenous flavours...

Fermez les yeux, ouvrez les oreilles : vous êtes à la fois au Brésil, en Belgique, en France, et un peu en Californie. Benoit Mansion fait le pari de réunir sur cet album la chanson en français, la bossa nova, et le jazz.
La rencontre des musiciens sous sa plume pimente le tout de saveurs à la fois exotiques et indigènes...

Recorded in San Francisco and in Europe with Brazilian, European, and American musicians, this album in French includes eleven original songs and one cover (Harry Connick Jr's « I've Got A Great Idea »).
Who could have predicted that Jazz, Bossa Nova and « Chanson Française » would get along so well ?
Benoit Mansion wrote the lyrics and several musics, but he also decided to work with very talented composers and arrangers like Stéphane Martini, Mimi Verderame, Carlos Oliveira, or Xavier Tribolet.
As for the musicians, on top of their great quality, you can hear the freedom of playing they had in the studio. And as a result, these songs breathe.
A veiled message to Donald Fagen and Harry Connick Jr. add their special touch to this painting in which you can feel the Master's shadow : Tom Jobim.

Credits, Lyrics, and more info on http://www.benoitmansion.com (Just in French for now - sorry guys!)

Enregistré à San Francisco et en Europe avec des musiciens Brésiliens, Européens, et Américains, cet album en Français propose onze titres originaux et une reprise, où la bossa nova, la samba et le jazz font un excellent ménage.
Les textes sont signés Benoit Mansion, qui s'est entouré pour plusieurs musiques de compositeurs et arrangeurs de talent comme Stéphane Martini, Mimi Verderame, Carlos Oliveira, ou encore Xavier Tribolet.
Côté musiciens, outre leur grande qualité, on sent la liberté d'expression dont chacun a bénéficié dans le studio, et cela a pour effet que ces chansons respirent.
Un clin d'œil à Donald Fagen et un autre à Harry Connick Jr. apportent leur couleur particulière à ce tableau où on entend planer l'ombre du Maître Tom Jobim...

lyrics evaluated
I love it, except the song "sexe-collegue, ex-collegue", which has STUPID lyrics. "Qu'est-ce que t'attends", on the other hand, is very exciting in both lyrics and music. Overall a great album for jazz and/or french lovers.

CD Baby


In a nutshell, this is an exceptionally lovely album- absolutely charming and enamoring. As he elegantly dances through French jazz, French samba, bossa nova and late night, lulling jazz blends rich with extended chords, sexy bass and light, shuffley percussion, his classy, finespun vocals and suitably warm tones suggest a similarity to Sting as well as Joao Gilberto. With the romantic, cultivated quality of French vocals, "Du Brésil dans les oreilles" excels in every aspect of songwriting, musicianship, and presentation.
