Insert your favorite expression of French surprise here! Paris Combo make good on the cliché inherent in their name, with this eponymous collection of smoky jazz numbers led by chanteuse and songwriter Belle du Berry. du Berry’s voice is exquisite, smooth and seductive, making those Gallic syllables sound as liquid as Portuguese. The four-piece combo behind her easily keeps pace, making their modern cabaret racket sound as effortless as backyard banjo pickin’. While the world revels in careful reproductions of the latest old thing, check out Paris Combo for an original twist on an established sound.
