3 stars This album is a cooperation between Georges Moustaki and Flairck........

Well, that's in the album title. What's not in the album title is the music itself unless you know who Georges Moustaki is. I did not, but now I know this is a singer who sings sweet laden ballads in French. Flairck acts as his back up band here and is occasionally let loose with some tasty melody lines.

Flairck on their own is excellent. Georges Moustaki is not. This most of all reminds me about the pretty ghastly Futuro Antico series released by Angelo Branduardi. Hence vocals on the top of some classical acoustic instruments.

Despite of that, this album is pretty good. The reason is Flairck and their performance here which is jaw dropping excellent. Their use of Middle East rhythm patterns and melody lines is great. In this setting, Georges Moustaki's own contributions works fine. Some of this album does not work at all though. But this is still a good album nevertheless.
