Sergio Toppi, who passed away in 2012, is part of the Pratt, Crepax and Battaglia generation that profoundly changed the landscape of European comics. For this magnificent volume of the BD Music collection, the Milanese artist's work is coupled with music, notably from the mad years of the Roaring Twenties, an era synonymous with growth and recklessness. It was an era that saw people go crazy for the Charleston, the Black Bottom and the Lindy Hop (dances). It was also the era of Louis Armstrong, King Oliver and Sidney Bechet. A modern aesthetic of American songwriting was born out of this period, expressing everything one wanted to say about man, woman or love, without ever daring to say it. In short, the songs free speech! A speech that willingly uses derision and irony. The woman is mischievous and rebellious, the man, in turn, is an object of desire or the worst of nasty men. This abundance of themes feeds into all the songs that portray Toppi's Ladies. Here the forgotten women of the twenties such as Annette Hanshaw, Mildred Bailey and Connie Boswell rub shoulders with the stars of the fifties and sixties: Nina Simone, Chris Connor, Anita O'Day, Julie London or Sarah Vaughan. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Continuing its series of releases covering the history of music in comic-book form, the Parisian publisher BDMUSIC has brought out one of the first albums in its "classic" collection in 2009 dedicated to Erik Satie, embellished with joyful, colourful illustrations by José Correa. Reissued in print in 2016, this digital edition contains text, drawings and music.This collection aims to present the greatest performances of this composer's best-known works, and, as far as possible, present them in their entirety. This album includes the Gymnopédies and the Gnossiennes in the touchstone version recorded by Aldo Ciccolini, as well as a selection of rarer works played by Francis Poulenc who was one of Satie's greatest admirers.This musical selection also includes two versions of the ballet Parade, which provoked much commentary, most notably from Jean Cocteau, when it was first performed in 1917 during the Great War. In addition to the original orchestral version conducted by Igor Markevitch, the author's transcription for four-handed piano is played here by two members of the Group of Six: Georges Auric and Francis Poulenc.One of the charms of this release is the way it thinks outside the box, with the full version of the astonishing Socrate directed by René Leibowitz, as well as the sadly-overlooked Messe des pauvres. The bonus offered at the end of the tracklist is a real treat, with the Trois Morceaux en forme de poire and the faux-naive melody Daphénéo, recorded in 1954 by Juliette Gréco, accompanied by the young Michel Legrand and his orchestra. These carefully-restored reissues provide an almost-exhaustive panorama of the work of this most curious musician. © F. Buchaillot / Qobuz
