An email I received today from Gallavin:
Have you already heard about Gallavin?
Gallavin revisits some of the most beautiful and biggest vocal jazz standards by breaking the boarders between gender, sexuality and sensuality.
Many were the standard jazz authors that were homosexual. Some of their songs were in fact written for their male lovers. This is, for instance, the case of Noël Coward, who wrote Mad about the Boy for his long term partner Graham Payn – a British-South African actor. Though these songs were originally written for men, they have been rarely sung by men.
Gallavin tends through his interpretation to re-establish some of the most beautiful and biggest jazz standards in their original essence.
Today Gallavin releases his first single on iTunes, Amazon.com, etc. and his music video Mad about the Boy (Radio Edit) with the team of the cabaret-bar “chez Maman” in Brussels.
