This is it 04:02
THIS IS IT (m : Olivier Hutman - l : Clotilde Rullaud) VERSE At the very first glance We started the dance Certain of what we had in our hands Fell from the stars Born to meet one day 2 better-halves as they say? Nothing, no one to stop us Only a great love between us So tell me what happened? This is it CHORUS : U took me in your arms and murmured That with a bit of will we'd do it We will see our love grow and grow and grow (this is it) U wrote me poetry and deep vows U turned my life from dark thorn to rose And promised me that our love would always be so! (this is it) I opened up my door, invited u in I listened to your words and started to sing Our love would endlessly grow and grow and grow and grow and ? (this is it) I did give u my heart, my soul, my home Without a doubt that u would keep them all We went to parties, we drank, we smoked, we were 2 in love souls (this is it) Please let me come into you Oh let me see your mind Make your inner thoughts decipherable to me Show me the beat of your heart, the rhythm of your soul We didn't make it This is it, This is!

Bahiana : m : Dano Haider – l : Emmanuel Delattre INTRO+CODA Oui écoute la, voilà elle est partie Illuminée, la langue habile babille Imagine les mouvements chaloupés Emmailler l’amalgamme de mots doux Ouïe écoute la,… (reprise) VERSE : La Bahiana est une batifolante danse endiablée. Affolant les lilas fleuris Riant des éclats de vie Vivant de larmes de pluie Oui écoute la Bahiana. CHORUS : C’est voluptueuse qu’on la savoure, Oh sa senteur des îles dévoile son velours Aah, la Bahiana S’aventure savante en éclats d’amour

2 cœurs perdus A : Clotilde Rullaud - C : Jean-Baptiste Laya et Clotilde Rullaud 2 cœurs perdus sur une tombe, Dansent une nuit une folle ronde, Parfums amers d’une blessure Qui dure Les noirs nuages couvrent le ciel, Annoncent l’horreur d’une tempête, De corps perdus qui font la fête, Qui grondent. Danse la terre, tournent les cris Tu es mon mien, tu es ma vie, Désormais morts et enterrés, Une seule nuit nous est donnée Enfin revoir ton doux visage, La pureté de ton regard, La douce chaleur de tes baisers Et à nouveau se séparer Oh danse, danse, danse, danse, danse, Oh, oh, oh 2 électrons au bout du monde, A chaque pôles pas une seconde, Un seul répit pour retrouvailles, Des funérailles. Dansent, dansent les corps nus, Implorent l’aurore pour leur salut Une vie nouvelle, éternelle ! Et puis s’aimer, à tout jamais ! Dansent, dansent les corps nus, Attendent l’aurore et leur salut Une vie nouvelle, éternelle ! Et puis s’aimer, à tout jamais ! 2 cœurs perdus sur une tombe, Dansent une nuit une folle ronde, Parfums amers d’une blessure Qui dure

The walk (l: Colin O’Doherty & Clotilde Rullaud) Grey skies, low mists and rain greet me. But they can't stop the walk. And so I walk, not randomly, but by design. I walk to forget... the burning, the shocking, the unending pain. And the beauty of this place is lost. Me, roads, beauty, pain - my pain. Waiting, waiting for the day when I can leave. Requiem, sempiter nam Requiem, sempiter nam Sempiter nam

“Clotilde - A most interesting & intriguing voice/vocalist. Maybe not a mass appeal singer and will be an acquired taste, but she is clearly gifted with a unique and compelling sound & presence.” David "Jaye" Fabilli - "The Edge - Jazzin Around" - WNJR 91.7fm, Washington PA, USA – July 2013

“Clotilde combines the laid-back hipness of a Helen Merrill or a Sheila Jordan with the kind of emotional interpretation of lyrics that one normally associates with rock or folk singers—yet her phrasing is pure jazz.” Lynn René Bayley – Fanfare Magazine (USA) – July 2013

“Her tastes are strikingly eclectic. And she has the technique and imagination to hold all the myriad influences together.” (**** & #5 Best Jazz albums 2011) Clive Davis - The Sunday Times (UK) - May 2011

“Clotilde's In Extremis is a nice dose of progressive jazz based stuff that escaped from the church basement and took on a life of it’s own. Fuelled by several levels of musical freedom, this wide ranging, ear opening date is a real treat for anyone looking for some vocal work that stretches well beyond the ordinary.” Chris Spector - Midwest Record - Lake Zurich IL, USA – July 2013

“Clotilde's CD In Extremis, is incredibly intense and passionate. I was sceptical about a bass-less group. I was wrong; she was right.” Bill Stine - "Turn Table For One" - WMNR Fine Arts Radio - Clinton CT, USA – July 2013

“French vocalist Clotilde is a great surprise! Love her voice, great tracks and the backing group is amazing, this album is a gem.” Peter Kuller - Radio Adelaide (AU) – July 2013

“Clotilde touches our heart with her beautiful mezzo-soprano voice. The feminine and colorful sounds of ‘In Extremis’ fascinate us. This is her masterpiece!” Shigeyo Hyodo -JAZZ PAGE (JP) – June 2013

“Clotilde: a bluesy voice, bursting with jazz, expressively delicate and full of pure emotion… rich subtleties and charming nuance... Clotilde places great importance on the words, fully expressing every nuance of the text... the voice and soul of a black singer. Her dizzying scats are so free and easy.” CATFISH RECORDS (JP) – June 2012

“We are immediately aware that we are entering a musical world that is free of the standard jazz formats. Clotilde Rullaud is a singer whose airy gravity holds no clichés, her sublime arrangements interpreted by a band of quite excellent musicians.” Jean-Marc Gelin - Les Dernières Nouvelles du Jazz (FR) - February 2011

“Clotilde dazzles us with her voice. (…) This sensual, experimental, intellectual but also instinctive jazz takes our whole being on a dreamlike, vibrant journey. (..) In three words: flamboyant, impressive and essential.” Sabine de Greef – With Music In My Mind (BE) – May 2011

“The first thing you notice is her perfect elocution and the rich timbres of her voice, free from gratuitous effects and frivolous ornamentations (…) Clotilde Rullaud moves smoothly between gossamer-delicate melody and decisive affirmation” Jacques Chesnel – Citizenjazz (FR) – March 2011

« L’album In Extremis propose une bonne dose de jazz progressif qui s’est échappé de la crypte d’une église pour prendre vie.

« Clotilde Rullaud : une voix bluesy, éclatante de jazz, aux expressions délicates et pleines de pures émotions, riche de subtiles et charmantes nuances. Ses scats libres et faciles à la manière d’un instrumentiste nous font tourner la tête. » CATFISH RECORDS (JP) – Juin 2012

“D'emblée on sait que l'on entre dans son univers musical qui s'affranchit des formats du jazz standardisé. Chanteuse à sensations pour qui tout est affaire de feeling et de groove. (…)” Jean-Marc Gelin - Les Dernières Nouvelles du Jazz (FR) - Février 2011

“Clotilde éblouit vocalement. (…) Ce jazz sensuel, expérimental, intellectuel mais également instinctif fait voyager, rêver, et vibrer. En trois mots: flamboyant, impressionnant, incontournable.” Sabine de Greef – With Music In My Mind (BE) – Mai 2011

“Ce qu’on retient d’abord c’est sa voix riche de timbres sans effets gratuits. (…) une voix passant l’air de rien du frôlement de la mélodie à une affirmation, une décision prégnante.” Jacques Chesnel – Citizenjazz (FR) – Mars 2011
