Jacques Canetti Productions presents Jeanne Moreau's 1964 album of songs by Cyrus Bassiak, reissued on vinyl as part of a series of albums highlighting the work of French talent agent and producer Jacques Canetti. In his lifelong dedication to chanson, Canetti supported and developed the careers of a dizzying array of artists: Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg, Boris Vian, Georges Brassens, Serge Reggiani, Leo Ferree, and Brigitte Fontaine are among the most notable. In the case of Jeanne Moreau, her work as an actress with such leaders of the French new wave as Louis Malle, Francois Truffaut, and Jean-Luc Godard had already established her iconic status by the time she connected with Jacques Canetti to record her first album in 1964. Her career as a vocalist, however, was still nascent, having just begun to show it's potential in her performance of Cyrus Bassiak's song "Le Tourbillon" in Truffaut's film Jules et Jim. Joining Moreau and Canetti in the creation of Moreau's debut album, Bassiak penned the twelve compositions presented here, which include such legendary songs as "J'ai la memoire qui flanche," "La peau, Leon," and "La vie de cocagne." Remastered from the original tapes. Housed in a gatefold jacket with original artwork.
