“The singer-songwriter Janie Renée proposes a second opus, L’ÉDEN EST UN BAZAR.  Always treading on jazz, she flirts with Latin colors this time.  L’ÉDEN EST UN BAZAR is a generous album with 13 songs to serenade your ears.

On the other hand, Janie Renée offers a well-controlled performance and we can feel she’s having fun. No matter which tune you’ll pick on this album, her writing is amazing, she finds the exact words to deliver exactly what she wants, as light or as deep as her intent goes…  Brass, piano, guitars, voices; the arrangements are weapons of massive seduction.  With L’ÉDEN EST UN BAZAR, the singer-songwriter Janie Renée sways you in an exotic infused jazz universe.  L’ÉDEN EST UN BAZAR, is an album where you can escape south in a paradise, where falling in love is a prerequisite…”
