This 2-CD original cast recording offers two simulated "live" Broadway performances of the legendary French entertainer Maurice Chevalier. Act One takes place at the Henry Miller's theater in 1947 and Act Two at Philharmonic Hall at Lincoln Center in 1967.

"It’s really magnificent, moving, the way that you have brought back to life this great artist. You share with him, his spirit." François Vals

We evoke the memory of these two giants of show business with some of their most entertaining and clever songs in their original language, French, that Maurice Chevalier and Charles Trenet sang them in.

"This CD is dedicated to my friends François and Madeleine Vals, who were at Maurice Chevalier's side during the last twenty years of his long career."   -                                                         - Don Sheppard

Delightfully entertaining arrangements of holiday tunes and carols in English and authentic French, crafted to touch the child in all of us.
