Claude Nougaro

Real Name:
Claude Nougaro
Profile:
Born on the 9th of September 1929 in Toulouse, France, from a baryton singer father and piano teacher mother.
Starts as a songwritter in the early 1950s.
Debuts as a singer in 1955, on the stage of Lapin Agile, Montmartre Cabaret.
His debut release comes out in 1959, with very minor success, despite a tour with Dalida.
In 1962, a jazz influenced collaboration with Michel Legrand becomes his breaktrough success, both commercial and critical.
In 1964 he teams up with Baden Powell, the first of a long term relationship with Brazil sounds and musicians.
In the mid-80s he is dropped by his record company Barclay due to disappointing record sales.
He then moves to New York, where he records a funk-tinged album, Nougayork, a massive seller and award winning album that brings him to the attention of a whole new audience.
After this New York experience, he goes back to his jazz roots, to which he incorporates some world music elements with collaborations with Didier Lockwood or Ray Lema.
He dies on March 4, 2004, his ashes scattered in the Garonne river in his Toulouse hometown.
Later in 2004, legendary label Blue Note releases a collection of his last recordings "La Note bleue".
