This week’s featured artist is Zaz. All three songs featured below are from her debut, eponymous album, released in 2010. All three recordings below are also live, accompanied by two or three instrumentalists. Just my preference. Zaz has released a couple albums since 2010, but these songs are my favorite.
- “Dans ma rue” — lyrics. This is a jazzy cover of a 1946 song by Édith Piaf. (Here’s a recording of Piaf performing the song, to piano.)
- “Je veux” — lyrics
- “Les passants” — lyrics
