Album Notes and Credits

Muze PNote Personnel: Charles Aznavour (vocals).
Muze PNote Arrangers: Steve Jeffries; Claude Denjean; Gordon Jenkins; Christian Gaubert; James Newton Howard; Jeremy Lubbock; Paul Mauriat; Tommy Oliver; Will Malone; Del Newman.
Muze PNote The aptly-titled GREATEST GOLDEN HITS, an exquisite 20-song compilation, focuses on Charles Aznavour's later career, when the Paris-based singer was recording much of his material in English in an attempt to break the US market. Coming both stylistically and chronologically between older pop crooners like Maurice Chevalier and younger, rock and roll-influenced artists like Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Dutronc, Aznavour is possibly best described as the Frank Sinatra of France. Indeed, most of his American releases during this period were on Sinatra's Reprise label.
Muze PNote Whether singing in English or French, Aznavour's commanding jazz-inflected voice holds more than a hint of world-weariness, adding a rueful edge to such songs as "Yesterday When I Was Young" and "A Blue Like the Blue of Your Eyes." GREATEST GOLDEN HITS is an excellent introduction to this under-appreciated singer.

Artist Overview

A keystone in the modern chanson genre, French cabaret singer and songwriter Charles Aznavour has been entertaining the world since the 1940s. In the early '50s, he often opened for Edith Piaf, and composed several songs for her, thus beginning a solid reputation as both a gifted writer (his songs have been covered memorably by Jack Jones, Matt Monro, and others) and a unique song-stylist. He has a special talent for writing and singing from unusual points of view, creating personal and compassionate character studies that expand the emotional range of the typical pop ballad. Aznavour has also acted in dozens of films, most famously Truffaut's SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER. Aznavour retired from performing in 2000, but continues to write and record music.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (5/3/96, p.79)
- "...Whether he's dealing with a drag queen's loneliness or an aging wife's fading allure, the substance--and his casual, commanding vocal style--holds our attention." - Rating: A
