    J'aime Paris!

    If your'e having a cocktail,dinner or any kind of party for that matter, then this is the CD for you. Stephane Pompougnac's mix of sexy and smart music could make any person cool in a matter of seconds and really get conversation flowing. Plus, if you need to get a lil' sumthin-sumthin' apres-soire, tracks 1 and 2 will fit the bill. Enjoy!
