We gave it a B

Best known as an affably cheesy French TV show host from the ’60s, Salvador has also released numerous lounge and novelty recordings (who could forget ”Da! Da! Niet! Niet!”?). Now, thanks to the fetishism of global DJs, the 84-year-old crooner — like Austrian counterpart Louie Austen -— is again au courant. This surprisingly unkitschy set of jazzy bossa novas, already a smash in France, finds his bilingual bedroom whisper intact and effective. Nifty for necking.
