femmes hypnotisantes


"They’re the kind of dames who can wear floor-length gowns and look completely naked. The kind with hair piled up on their head like compliant serpents, or falling down in smooth lustrous waves. Dames with hard faces and mocking smiles and eyes that sized you up and found you wanting... but you’d do, for now."
— James Lileks

Not Shirley Horn and Eartha Kitt! I'd originally included Nina Simone's performance of "Lilac Wine" as well; maybe I should add that back. Quite a few of my favorite female performers (Ella, Billie, Etta Jones, Esperanza Spalding) didn't have a song I could find to fit the mood.

but in french it would be "femmes hypnotisantes" , I can be wrong but I think we wouldn't say femmes hypnotiques, whatever, great mix

No, you're totally right. I changed the title, even though it sounds less charming to an American ear ;) I don't want to be one of those people on the internet who just throws around bad French!
