No one is a prophet in his own country" , it is said. The career of Jean Sablon , the great French crooner , is a fine example of this. His beginnings in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s were marked by a resolutely modern repertoire, a pronounced taste for lively rhythms and frequent association with jazz musicians. However, it was in the Americas (north and south), whose customs he adopted in 1937, that Jean Sablon achieved brilliant recognition as the French troubadour From then on, an international career developed over several decades, punctuated by memorable successes, of which this anthology largely reflects.
