Accompanied by the cream of French jazz, guitarist and singer Thomas Curbillon unveils an irresistibly charming first album, which connects happy and tender lyrics with the richness of solos, in a disc with mischievous lyrics, adorned with sumptuous arrangements... Spangled with nods to Salvador, Aznavour and Nougaro, Place Ste-Opportune reconciles French chanson with swing.

Press reviews

"Le résultat est enchanteur"
—Jazz News "Indispensable"

“Ses mots ne sonnent jamais creux et vont droit au cœur”
—Jazz Magazine "Révélation"

"Du travail soigné, élégant, gorgé de swing et de sensibilité, propre à séduire fans de jazz et amoureux de la chanson française."
—Les Dernières Nouvelles du jazz

"Charmant, merveilleuse. You can almost taste the Gauloises. Feel the laidback swing in the arranging. Crooning in French, what's not to like from the deftly bruised tones of Thomas Curbillon?" 
—Marlbank (☆☆☆☆)
