The jazzinotes edition of the French tune "C'est Si Bon" is an instrumental arrangement based on the interpretation of Jolie Môme. The instrumentation is flexible: the lead melody is in Eb (e.g. alto saxophone), Bb (e.g. trumpet or tenor saxophone), the second melody is in Bb (e.g. clarinet or soprano saxophone) and C (e.g. violin). The there are the note-for-note transcribed accordion and double bass.
The video of this jazzy interpretation was yet watched more than a million times. It is really worth to have a look!
The french pianist Henri Betti composed the tune very quickly in 1947 and asked André Hornet to write the lyrics afterwards. He choose the third version, not the favourit of Hornet. Edith Piaf refused to sing this tune and recommended it to Yves Montand, who refused, too. Some not well known interpreters recorded the tune. Later Montand changed his mind an recorded the song - with great succes: e.g. in Italy it became a No 1 charts hit. Later on some famous musicians covered this song, e.g. Louis Armstrong und Eartha Kitts.
The band about themselves: "Jolie Môme” brings you the music of Edith Piaf and other renowned singers of the “chanson réaliste” era, with hits from the 1920’s through the 1950’s. The sound of the accordion gives a very Parisian atmosphere and complements the songbird vocals of French-Canadian born Myriam. The band is based in New York City and has made a name for itself in the French jazz, cabaret and vintage communities."
