Jean Claude Vannier/Melodie Nelson

Jean Claude Vannier (string arranger/co-composer for Serge Gainsbourg’s Melodie Nelson) performed Melodie Nelson live at the Barbican in London, 2006, and later again in 2008 at Cité de la Musique in Paris. In both cities, I sang on ‘En Melodie’; a duet with violinist Graham Clark.
Other performers included Brigitte Fontaine, Martina Topley Bird, Jarvis Cocker, Laetitia Sadler, Brian Molko, Daniel Darc, Gruff Rhys, Clotilde Hesme, Mathieu Amalric, and also Dougie Wright, Big Jim Sullivan, Herbie Flowers and Vic Flick from the original recordings.
