Fred Astaire

Génial !

Fabuleux danseur…le plus grand !

mais aussi…chanteur et quel chanteur !

La voix est posée à la perfection, aucun effet gratuit, tout est parfait dans son interprétation…

« Fred Astaire is the best singer of songs the movie world ever knew. His phrasing has individual sophistication that is utterly charming. Presumably the runner-up would be Bing Crosby, a wonderful fellow, though he doesn’t have the unstressed elegance of Astaire. »

Jerome Kern

« He has a remarkable ear for intonation, a great sense of rhythm and what is most important, he has great style – style in my way of thinking is a matter of delivery, phrasing, pace, emphasis, and most of all presence. »

Irvin Berlin
