Better than other versionsI compared some other versions on YouTube, and so I noticed that this jazzy sound design by Cathy Varna is much more satisfying. And about the lyrics (translated to English), the songtext is about jealousy, about a partner who is not true, taking other lovers. So the pain is compared with yellow fever. In times of the coronavirus pandemic, the yellow-fever-comparison becomes another depth: "At this moment, I'm on a train, very far away, far away from you, and it's a lot better like this. I no longer want to suffocate in your hair. Oh yes, I know that yellow fever will carry me away. But then, how many injuries will they whistle past on their way? Another night, again, a stranger was lying stretched out in the street. He was crying for life; he was crying for love; he was waiting for death. The other night. Yellow fever will carry me away..."

T. Jahz Review of a beautiful song by a beautiful vocalist---Cathy VarnaVery nicely done, the instrument are complementing one another, giving you a bed and cushion of rhythm and harmony to lay you voice down . I must say I enjoyed this arrangement and jazz version of Nous Etions Deux very much, great job and the emotional content in your vocal performance was beautifully evident.
Cathy VarnaHer passion is felt so deeply here in this song.. she is doing such a great job. I would recommend this song to everyone and that they give it a good listen. It kinds of smoothes out. When it started i was a little apprehensive but then it grew on me...
cantante di livellobravissima cantante preparata e di livello. oserei dire quasi belva umana che fa un jazz ben arrangiato e' da seguire perché' potrebbe darci delle belle sorprese. viva la France. auguri con la musica
...nousVery beatifull composition and YES a bit Jazzy - very well performed as usual with your perfect and beatiful voice in a perfect interpretition - For a vocal composition the music style is very sophisticated but popular - Instruments are very well suited with arrangement which is very rich and beatiful with well played instruments - In my opinion this composition have all attributes to be promoted for international market - So go for it - This is great work - Keep on and do more of this fantastic music - Thank you Cathy - I enjoy and GREAT RESPECT...

A jazzy waltzThere are at least a few good artist to discover and I believe Cathy Varna is one of them. This jazzy waltz is really refreshing to listen to. Guess it also could fit well in the European MGP contest. Its a strong arrangement and the song got some very appealing melody lines. Further I really appreciate the acoustic sound of this track. It would be great to be able to listen to this artist live some time. I guess when this pandemi is over we will get the chance to once again be able to visit different venues and go to concerts. Well I guess we will hear more from Cathy in the future. Keep up the good work and you all stay safe ! All the best -Kris
French discoveryA nice slow jazz waltz but probably a little too repetitive for me however jazz seems to be like that. Has 70's feel of this genre backing could be a little louder but overall sounds real good. I could play this more and more and could get used to it. PC
French Jazz...This jazz piece with french pop flavor goes along with a glass of chilled white wine very nicely. I feel quite nostalgic, for this reminds me of Francis Lai. I played his french pops gems a lot back in the 1970s. Cathy's song is with much more emotion and dynamics than those of Francis Lai, which makes it better fits to dry white wine. I recommend Chablis to open. C'est si bon, Cathy!
In MY OpinionGreetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, I really enjoyed the emotion and energy in this song.Think about a music solo break to step away from vocals for a short period in future works. Vocals are smooth and natural, sort of - down to earth as they say, and extremely peaceful. The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny
Nice Job , Relaxed groove, Such nice chord structures too !Nice Job , Relaxed groove, Such nice chord structures too ! Jazzy, hip and very well done... I enjoyed the arrangement, with a nice journey... i wanted to hear a bit more dynamics in the piece... ( But so very nice) I also will share, be cautious of the vocal phrasings ( so that they don't drop off into a slightly flat vibrato) Very enjoyable and a delight to listen to. Thx for sharing... Blessings !!!
My review of the songHello from Chihuahua, Mexico. First of all I appreciate the opportunity to comment on the song. The version has a very special strength, in which the voice stands out impressively, but the musical performance is very good. The trumpet solo mute is very sensual. The sound in general and the mix are quite good. I congratulate you for a very good job.
Significant Song for JazzThe song has impressed me deeply much. I really like the cool bass intro followed from piano influenced by blues with patterns of jazz music. Great brass section brings additionally power into the song and is an extra factor for me. Sounds really beautiful together and creates a great space in the backings. Cathy Varna with her unique dynamic voice and brilliant vocal projection make this wonderful composition complete. The dramatical passion of the lyrics come from the heart and make the meaning of the song engaging for me. Mixing and mastering is brilliant in appropriation of jazz music style and versatile instrumentation, professionell orchestrated with perfect drums and virtuos trumpet solo. All instruments really stand out. Overall a creative arrangement and very impressive recording. I´m sure, you will also enjoy what you hear and like to add. Let others know your recommendation.
NOUS ETIONS DEUX ( Jazz VersioVery Lovely Vocals and the music is heartfelt, It's pretty yet so outspoken and the musical blend of hypnotic rhythms are just as vibrant and make the song more robust, Sweet horn solo and bridge. I truly enjoyed this piece, looking forward to hearing more of your work, much success.
