Interview with WRTC's Bob Parzych

Paris Combo, as diverse and sophisticated as the city from which they hail, have garnered critical acclaim and an immense following for their unique mélange of colourful cabaret, elegant jazz, gypsy swing and sassy alterna- pop, and here again, a combination of musical influences underpins the infectious, toe-tapping grooves which have become their hallmark. The album adds to the group's already fabulously cosmopolitan musical palette and will only enhance their already considerable global attraction. 

"Tako Tsubo", the lounge-tinged title track of Paris Combo's new album, is inspired by a rare condition known also as the "broken-heart syndrome" - thank goodness Paris Combo have the cure! On their new record, the chanteuse Belle du Berry leads us through a deliciously varied collection of musical atmospheres, ranging from the intimacy of the live combo to more lush orchestral settings and beautiful 60's retro à la Bacharach with near-psychedelic overtones.

The combo was in NYC to play City Winery and WRTC: Hartford - Bob Parzych spoke with PC's David Lewis. Listen to the attached interview
