Charles Aznavour at Alhambra Maurice Chevalier 1960/61
thanks to Dmitry Zhoukov
This is a rare program from a Charles Aznavour show conducted and arranged by Paul Mauriat (at least the Aznavour part). The program does not indicate the exact date of the show but information from the
Une Vie en Bleu book, the show took place between December 1960 and January 1961.
Thanks to Dmitry Zhoukov for sharing this program with us and with the information!
Charles Aznavour Show was performed at Alhambra Maurice Chevalier, Paris, France.
The other performers were Jacqueline Boyer, Boby Lapointe, Le Trio Akeff, Les Dior Dancer's, Les 3 Horaces and Les Morways.
Paul Mauriat arranged and conducted his Grand Orchestra for Charles Aznavour for the second part of the show, and although he might be also conducted for the other performers, it appears that the orchestra performed "Itsi Bitsi Petit Bikini" with llustration from Norbert Tassot and "Notre Concerto".
