Biography

French chanteuse Juliette Gréco (b.1927) was one of the stars of the bohemian “in” crowd of post-war France. Born to a Corsican father in Montpellier and a mother active in the Résistance, in the Hérault département of southern France. Involved also she was caught but not deported for her young age. She was raised by her maternal grandparents. She moved to Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris in 1946 after her mother left the country for Indochina with the French Navy.

A famous description of Juliette Gréco is that her voice “encompasses millions of poems”. She was the muse of many of the writers and artists working in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, such as Jean-Paul Sartre and Boris Vian. Some of these artists would write songs for her to sing. She fell in love with and almost married Miles Davis when he visited Paris in 1949.

    Mon 100ème coup de cœur est pour la Chanson de Margaret. Ce qui est dégeulasse chez Juliette Gréco c'est sa vieillesse : elle est une championne de l'anti-internet. Moi qui avait ses disques en vinyle, puis en cd et qui n'est plus rien pour avoir tout offert ou tout m'être fait voler. Il ne me reste que ce que me redonne le net soit pas grand chose. Dommage pour nous. A bientôt à Lyon au théâtre antique. Son dernier album ( ça se traverse et c'est beau) est excellent.

    I just can't understand why it is so hard to find english translations of her songs. Does anyone know a good site?

    Stop being so petty everywhere, anyone incited to smoke because of these images of artists smoking is rather dim anyway. It's just a stylish photo.
