French Toast - Live at Chez Nous (RRCD1008)
This album was recorded in response to an overwhelming demand for a follow up to 'In A French Cafe'. It contains another 15 French chansons sung in English and French with the addition of a jazzy double bass and some three-part harmony vocals.
It includes a stunning arrangement of The Habanera from Carmen, a new version of the theme from A Man And A Woman, a soulful rendition of Ne Me Quitte Pas in the manner of Jacques Brel and even one song in French AND Italian: the well known Parlez-moi d'amour (Parlami d'amore Mariù). Plus Lorkin's own charming "Parisian" waltz about herself and Piaf, Edith et moi, and songs by Charles Trénet and Michel Legrand.
