Chanson Du Jour: The Song from Moulin Rouge

Chanson Du Jour 11/28/2016 Toot Thielemans’ “Moulin Rouge”

“The Song from Moulin Rouge” (also known as “Where Is Your Heart”) is a popular song that first appeared in the 1952 film Moulin Rouge.
The most popular version of the song was made by Percy Faith’s Orchestra, with a vocal by Felicia Sanders in 1953.

This wonderful version is from the 1998 album “Chez Toots,” featuring the unmistakable harmonica brilliance of the late Toots Thielemans.

“I was born in Brussels in 1922. My parents had a sidewalk café where every Sunday an accordionist came to play. I played myself at age four mostly French popular songs until…much later when I bought a harmonica, then a guitar and heard my first jazz record.” ~ Toots Thielemans
