More Review Quotes:

    "Yves Montand was a first-rate performer and so is Brassard... after seeing this charismatic showman, you will become a fan." --  Linda Amiel Burns/TheaterMania.com

   "The narrative thread is excellent, his voice superb and without imitating him, his evoking of Montand is first rate." -- Jacqueline Chambord/Artistic Director/Alliance Française

    "(Brassard) reflected the grace and charisma of the sexy Italian from Marseille."  -- Elizabeth Ahlfors/Cabaret Scenes

    "Jean Brassard's exquisite performance demonstrated an imposing level of professional artistry." -- Linda Zagaria/National Arts Club  
       
   "The always lovely "Sous Le Ciel de Paris"/"Under the Paris Sky" (Jean Dréjac/Hubert Giraud; English lyric by Kim Gannon) is delivered as if standing on a bridge overlooking the Seine. One can see the city in his eyes. "Syracuse" (Bernard Dimey/Henri Salvador), which evokes black and white seaside dancehalls of Jean Gabin films, is elegantly contained from a chair at the side of the stage. The song is beautiful and pure; lilting piano melody, percussive brushes, the gentlest bass, a plaintive harmonica." - Read the Full Review from 11.09.11 -- Alix Cohen/Cabaret Scenes

LE CHANTEUR INTERNATIONAL JEAN BRASSARD REND HOMMAGE À YVES MONTAND DANS SON SPECTACLE ¨THE KID FROM PARIS¨ POUR COMMÉMORER LE 20ÈME ANNIVERSAIRE DE SA DISPARITION

JEAN BRASSARD rend un hommage musical à YVES MONTAND  l'une des stars les plus innovantes et l'un des pilliers de la chanson française, dans son spectacle ¨The Kid from Paris¨. Avec ses trois représentations au Triad Theater, l'artiste marque le 20ème anniversaire de la disparition d'Yves Montand qui aurait célébré son 90ème anniversaire. En interprétant une sélection éclectique de chansons en français et en anglais appartenant au répertoire des années 50 d'Yves Montand, l'hommage en solo de Brassard mêle habilement chansons, vignettes politiques et un récit de première qualité retraçant la vie, les amours, les passions et les engagements politiques de l'icône française bien-aimée. Co-écrit avec David Krueger, le partenaire de Brassard, ¨The Kid from Paris¨ tour à tour vous informera, vous émouvra, vous séduira et célébrera la vie de Montand à différents niveaux.  Krueger dirige pendant que Brassard détient la place centrale.
