Latest offering from Francophile producer, composer, pianist, writer and singer DEAN GRANT is a duet with one of his heroes…. SACHA DISTEL!
Grant, based down in sunny Avignon, specialises in retro sounds and his ‘French Recording Sessions’ released on Records Gramophonique (a Dutch label that specializes in French music) are eagerly sought by genre collectors.
Distel’s 1962 version of ‘Cheek To Cheek’ has long been one of Grant’s favourites and after some clever studio trickery, he’s managed to craft his dream duet – melding his styling effortlessly with the original. It’s out now … the cover’s a lovely slice of nostalgia too!
