"Rose Rouge" kicks off the 'Tourist' album, an album that ruled the summer of 2000 and sounds fresh until today ! What a thrill it was hearing this at the time ! The jazz piano and overheads, the voice of Marlena Shaw, snippets of a live show in Montreux, the trumpet kicking in, the kick drum fading in... the horns... everything so perfect but still with a lot of feeling of human musicians timing.
Definetely a classic !
Yes it's been ten years since Ludovic Navarre send this gift out to the world. The album sold 4 million copies world wide !
Hope to hear some new St Germain work some time...
