Jean-Louis Jaubert, the leader and one of the founders of the Compagnons de la Chanson, has just disappeared at the age of 92. Those who were called «9 boys... one heart» are now only two. Gérard Sabbat disappeared on February 2 and before him five other of their companions: Jo, Guy, Jean-Pierre, Jean and Hubert. With Edith Piaf who launched the group’s career, he lived a short and beautiful romance. The cult song «The three bells» where their voices mingle, echoes sadly to our memories.
An attractive, lazy and humorous man, musician and intense singer, he was one of the most prominent figures in this extraordinary artistic and human adventure. Eternally dressed in their white shirt and blue trousers, the friendly 3 tenors, 3 baritones and 3 bass have fascinated the French public and helped to introduce the American public to French song, from the fifties until 1985.
«Céline», «In the prisons of Nantes», «That’s why»... their moving standards are an integral part of our heritage.
