Jazz has long been nourished by world music: Jacques Loussier is famous for his interpretations of Bach, Thierry Eliez pays a fine tribute to the Beatles, and singer Paul Anka makes pop swing on "Rock Swings", not to mention Miles Davis with his Spanish experiments or Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time".
Rose Franck takes a trip in the opposite direction, propelling great jazz standards into another world.
With pop accents, harmonies imbued with 20th-century classical music or more ethnic rhythms, Franck creates a sonic setting around Rosa's voice, giving these magnificent, timeless songs a new aesthetic.
