The French label Barclay Records, with which singer/songwriter Jacques Brel was associated for most of the 1960s and '70s, released a compilation of recordings of his songs in March 2004 that differs significantly from this U.S. edition. The French version of Next Brel has 15 tracks to the American 12, but that doesn't mean simply that three tracks have been deleted. In fact, there are six tracks on the French album not found on the American one: "If We Only Have Love," by Dionne Warwick; "Amsterdam," by Anne Watts; "If You Go Away," by Emiliana Torrini; "Next," by Gavin Friday & the Man Seezer; "The Desperate Ones," by Nina Simone; and "Seasons in the Sun," by Terry Jacks (a number one hit in the U.S.). But there are also three tracks on the American album not contained on the French one: "Les Flamandes," by French chanteuse Barbara; "Ne Me Quitte Pas," by Nina Simone; and "My Death," by Scott Walker. The deletions and substitutions make for less repetition of songs on the American album.

While David Linx's name may not be writ large here in the States, the fifty-one year-old singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist is a mega-star in his native Belgium, and in 2005 was named Best Jazz Musician in Europe, which covers a whole lot of territory. On Brel, Linx sings music composed by his Belgian forerunner, the late and legendary Jacques Brel, accompanied by the world-class Brussels Jazz Orchestra (whose personnel are not listed on the bare-bones promotional copy save for saxophonist / music director Frank Vaganee).

Daniel Brel, bandoneon, Le Poème Harmonique, Vincent Dumestre, director

While the sound of early instruments is reminiscent of chiaroscuro Baroque splendours, the bandoneon calls up the urban world of the tango. Combining the two, as Daniel Brel (b. 1950) does in his works, blurs these distinctions, allowing the instruments to speak with their own voices. The result is an extremely personal type of music that is both poetic and poignant, born of the moving encounter between Daniel Brel and Vincent Dumestre and his musicians.

Bien après sa disparition, l'œuvre de Jacques Brel continue d'influencer profondément la chanson française. De Benjamin Biolay à Noir Désir, nombre d'artistes se réfèrent à l'auteur du " Plat pays ". Brel est moderne, justement parce qu'il ne l'a jamais été, parce qu'il ne comprenait rien aux modes et qu'il ne s'en souciait guère, il a construit une œuvre intemporelle. François Gorin, ancien critique rock, auteur de plusieurs essais et romans, journaliste à Télérama, brosse un portrait sensible de cet artiste incontournable.

Jacques Brel was a Belgian singer-songwriter who composed and performed literate, thoughtful, and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following, initially in Belgium and France, later throughout the world. He was widely considered a master of the modern chanson. Les Marquises (English: The Marquesas) is Jacques Brel's thirteenth and final album. This is a quirky, adventurous set to be sure, but it satisfies from top to bottom: Les Marquises is classic Brel.
