Greaves Verlaine

John Greaves' latest CD is a Paul Verlaine project. This is mellow and beautiful music. Unfortunately I don't understand a lot of the poems (will translate later), but I start too feel a bit French, and that's good (isn't it so?). Karen Mantler is on it, and the cover is cool! You will find some of the songs on MySpace. Buy another Greaves album with French lyrics too ("Chansons"), and you'll have one more album with Robert Wyatt participating.
