Brigitte Fontaine – J’ai 26 Ans
I’ve been doing a small, informal study of Paris for a possible upcoming trip this summer. One of the books I’m reading Paris: The Secret History, mentioned the singer Brigette Fontaine as being the sound of avant-garde Paris in the 60s, so naturally I looked her up on YouTube. This amazing song, among others, is what I found.
One of my favorite jazz groups, The Art Ensemble of Chicago collaborated with Fontaine on this song.
