For her fifth album, Jeanne Newhall conveys the romance of Paris. The album is called French Cafe, and her inspired piano arrangements include charming interpretations of movie themes (from Dr. Zhivago, The Year of Living Dangerously, and Moulin Rouge), classical pieces (Saint Saens's "The Swan," Faure's "Pavane," etc.) and popular pieces such as Dan Fogelberg's "Paris Nocturne" and Michel LeGrand's "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?" You will enjoy the loving finesse and sparkling artistry of Jeanne's French Cafe -- it's the next best thing to being there.
