French jazz singer and recording artist Raquel Bitton, who has recorded eight previous albums, is recognized as one of the foremost interpreters of French jazz music in America today, and has been internationally reviewed as the greatest interpreter of the music from the Edith Piaf repertoire.
Raquel has performed her hit show, “Raquel Bitton Sings Piaf- Her Story, Her Songs” to sold-out performances at notable concert halls across North America - including three times at Carnegie Hall and once with the New York Pops. “PIAF- Her Story, Her Songs” celebrates the extraordinary life of the legendary Piaf through her songs. A 20-piece orchestra backs Bitton’s one-woman tribute to the “Little Sparrow.”
Bitton’s unique, heartfelt renditions (sung in French) and her powerful delivery take her audience on an intensely moving and emotional journey.
The PBS docu-concert film, Piaf: Her Story, Her Songs, starring Raquel (originally released by Lions Gate Films) continues to air on PBS stations nationwide. Due to the positive response from stations and viewers and the large percentage of national market penetration, the license was renewed through 2017.
Raquel’s previous CD, BOLEROS, was well received in the press and at jazz radio:
