Monday, February 13th, 2012: Released just in time for the Valentine’s Day celebrations, we present two songs featuring Aurora Colson all about romantic love!
RNS 0016 – “Berwick Rendezvous” c/w “Hymne À L’Amour” – Mike Collins | Aurora Colson
“Berwick Rendezvous” tells the story of a girl meeting a guy for the first time at a party and immediately falling under his spell – a classic ‘love at first sight’ situation! The lyrics spell the situation out, an unexpected introduction just as she is about to go home early, then it happens – the shock of the attraction!
“Hymne à l’Amour”, one of the most famous songs written by Edith Piaf (widely regarded as France’s most famous popular singer), is an ode to the love of her life, boxer Marcel Cerdan who was killed in a plane crash en route from Paris to New York to see her. This version takes the song into jazz territory with Jim Mullen’s sophisticated guitar chords and Jamie Talbot’s smooth tenor saxophone solo.
