Claude Challe is a French singer of varieties, born September 9, 1929 in Toulouse and died March 4, 2004 in Paris. He also tried to painting, drawing and poetry. Son of Pierre Nougaro, opera singer and Liette Tellini, Italian piano teacher (and the first prize in piano at the conservatory) [1], he was raised by his grandparents in Toulouse, where he heard Glenn Miller, Edith Piaf and Louis Armstrong (among others) on the radio. In 1947 he failed his degree, and then begins in Paris in journalism (writing for various newspapers, including The Journal of Curistes in Vichy and L'Echo d'Alger). In parallel, he wrote songs for Marcel Upstream (The Barber of Belleville, The Sweeper of the King) and Philippe Clay (Joseph, The Sentinel). He meets up on Georges Brassens, who becomes his friend and mentor, and he writes poetry. He did his military service in 1949, the Foreign Legion in Rabat, Morocco. It sends texts to Marguerite Monnot, composer of Edith Piaf, which puts them in music (Mephisto, The Path of War). He began singing for a living in 1959 in a Parisian cabaret, the Lapin Agile in Montmartre. In 1962, he decided to sing his own works: A Little Girl and my daughter Cecile (dedicated to his daughter, born in 1962 with his wife Sylvie, met at the Lapin Agile). These songs immediately made him known to the public, although it has already begun to break by participating in concerts of Dalida. In the early 60s, he introduced new rhythms in French music and composed many songs tempo yéyé and provocative texts ("Even more than in the room, I love you in the kitchen. Nothing is more beautiful than a woman's hands in flour "). He also wrote several songs with Michel Legrand whose Cinema and The Don Juan. A car accident immobilize several months in 1963. The following year, he takes a trip to Brazil, and sings in prestigious venues: the Olympia, the Palais, the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris. The death of his friend Jacques Audiberti in 1965 led him to write a tribute song, Song for the mason. The events of May 68 it inspired a torrential Paris in May, plea for life, to be banned antenna, although it is fiercely opposed to the policy: if I have to assume this narrow gate, with his left sleeve, with its right sleeve, his pale prayers, its hymns crimson, his passion for the future, its chronic amnesia. The same year he recorded his first album live at the Olympia: An Evening with Claude Challe. His song Toulouse is a fitting tribute to his hometown of Toulouse. His career continued so steadily, punctuated by success: Jazz and Java, you'll see (French adaptation of O será as Chico Buarque de Holanda), the Ile de Re, Armstrong or Little Bull. After a disappointing album found in the results (Bleu Blanc Blues) in 1984, his record company did not renew his contract. Nougaro then left for New York in search of inspiration, wrote and recorded a disc on site funded by WEA (the executive producer is Mick Lanaro): Nougayork, whose resounding success was a surprise ironic. He was rewarded in 1988 by the Victoires de la Musique for best album and best artist, and from 1993 to 1997, he released three new albums. His health deteriorated from 1995, when he underwent a heart operation c; in 2003, it can occur at the Word Festival in Toulouse because of his health. From 1998 to 2004, he devoted himself to more concerts and festivals, not to mention participate in an album to help children suffering from AIDS. In 2002 he performed throughout France spoke with a show, where he resumed many of his texts (Victor, Angel Feather. ) Without music. Its interpretation is subject to a DVD "The fables of my fountain". In 2003 and 2004 he is preparing an album for the jazz label Blue Note, but can not complete this album "The Blue Note", released in 2004. After undergoing further surgery in early 2004, he died in March, to 74 years, died of cancer. His funeral took place in Toulouse, in the Basilica of St. Sernin. Part of his ashes were dispersed in the Garonne. A municipal garden in the city bears his name. His songs are inspired from other American jazz, which he took many titles (Charles Mingus, Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, Neal Hefti), but also music from Brazil (Antonio Carlos Jobim, Baden Powell de Aquino, Chico Buarque) : see the list of French songs inspired by Brazilian music.
