Georges Brassens songs revolutionized French Chanson in the 50's and 60's. He was an anarchist bard whose songs could be raunchy, polemic or poignant but always remained steeped in classic French poetry. He went on to become one the most emblematic French singer of the 20th century but his songs, unlike those of his friend Jacque Brel, never became known outside of France.
Franco-American singer and composer Pierre de Gaillande has translated a number of Brassens songs. He has stuck to the rhyming scheme and verse length of the original song and re-arranged the music with a great  cinematic sensibility, using a combination of guitars, clarinets, lapsteel and charango. The result has been hailed on both side on the Atlantic and has even lead to a collaboration with Brassens' long time guitarist who has embrace the project.
