The Voyage, Part Ii
Songs adapted from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du mal. The poems were about decadence and eroticism, but this performance is less sexy and more poetic/contemplative. Baudelaire was prosecuted and fined for the indecency of his lyrics (but that was in another age - should be FCC clear). If you like poetry, you might get a kick out of Schoen’s thoughtful translations. This album is very much about the words, with music/vocalizing as a solid backdrop. No FCCs detected.
1. Male voice and violin, acoustic feel
* 2. French cabaret feel, almost a hint of alternative klezmer/Russian jazz bands.
3. A dance beat (tarantella? Tango?), plaintive violin solo
4. Some brass
* 5. electric guitar
*6. Contemporary shock of sound, female vocals added for duet, a bit dissonant (not in a great way). Musicality suddenly takes a more prominent role.
7. Folk feel, electric guitars
8. piano, female vocals, crackly sound of old vinyl
*9. duet, accordion, up-tempo
10. electric guitar, folk/rock
11. mellow, down-tempo
12. ballad feel
**14. Folk, playful – fun lyrics!
