He is considered a master of the modern chanson
to/AlbumFP 90 years after his birth, 13 artists from different horizons celebrate the great Jacques Brel, through interpretations of his greatest successes.
Jacques Brel’s unshakable faith in his own abilities served him well when all around him were equivocal. Stuck, bored and unfulfilled at the family’s cardboard factory back in Brussels, 24-year-old Brel fled for Paris in September 1953, leaving his wife and young family in Belgium, a temporary arrangement that would remain permanent but for one abortive attempt to relocate them . Brel was unrepentant, and on his final 1977 album, when at death’s door, he upped the ante with an even ruder song, Les . which accuses the Flemish of having standoffish stares and gormless humour, as well as being Nazis during the war, and Catholics in between.
