After making his adieux to opera in 2010, José van Dam began venturing into other musical genres by revisiting the tangos of Carlos Gardel in the company of Jean-Louis Rassinfosse and Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven. Caminito, a CD released by Cyprès, ravished fans keen to discover the famous bass-baritone in an unexpected repertoire, and also featured an unexpected collaboration with an already atypical duo: a jazz double bass-player and a polymorphic pianist. Sharing moments of music and friendship from one concert to the next, the trio acquired a unique sheen, born of spontaneity and complicity. A desire to prolong the adventure was only natural, though this time in a selection from a much broader repertoire: the French chanson.

José van Dam began by exploring songs he has always known, putting lyrics above vocal effect, for in the simple melodies of the chanson, everything can often be said in just a few notes. From this unlimited repertoire, José chose texts that move him the most. Texts that talk of love, Amour with a capital A and love in all its other forms. The love of the sublime Jacques Brel for the flatness of his homeland, love for a father, for a friend, for the bohemian Montmartre of one’s youth, for jazz, for partying... the trio leads us by the hand in search of the traces of separated lovers whose footprints on the sand are so quickly erased by the sea.
