"A l'hotel d'Esterno, Au concert de bienfaisance une révélation: Le duo ZADOK - JACOBI" - 
French article of September, 1974, by Claude Karoubi, president of the Burgundian Cultural Association (ABC):

French original:

A l’hôtel d’Esterno
Au concert de bienfaisance une révélation: Le duo ZADOK-JACOBI

Les Fêtes de la Vigne sont l’occasion de soirées mondaines. Elles ont heureusement un double avantage, elles sont au profit d’une œuvre de bienfaisance et nous permettent de découvrir les très belles salles que compte notre ville.


Hier soir c’était à l’hôtel d’Esterno, siège du quartier central, que se tenait un concert de bienfaisance au bénéfice des œuvres sociales des armées.

Autour du général Jean Nicolas, commandant la 64e division infanterie, se tenait tout ce que notre région compte comme gradés, officiers supérieurs. Parmi eux : le colonel Mahlberg, commandant le B A 102 ; le colonel Houissé, le colonel Leclaire, le colonel Sourel, le médecin chef de l’hôpital des armées Gorlin, les généraux du cadre de réserve, MM de Cointet, Jacob, le capitaine Guillaume.

Mais point de tenue. Pour une fois, tous étaient en civil. Parmi les autres personnalités on notait la présence aussi de M et Mme Levavasseur, de Mme Gaston-Gérard, Mme Démarche, M. Koche, etc.



Feuilletant ce programme … zut, les mêmes groupes depuis mardi… Surprise, M. Levavasseur annonce un changement : le groupe tchèque prévu a été appelé à Paris et est remplacé par un jeune duo israélien : 
« La Bonne Vie ». Elle, Ilana Zadok, jeune brunette aux yeux et cheveux noirs, et qui chante avec ton les délices de son lointain Yémen. Lui, Palti Jacobi, sosie d’Enrico Macias, est auteur-chanteur et guitariste.

Ce duo conquit l’assistance par son art très sobre, qui mit pleinement en valeur la beauté des mélodies et leur variété – d’inspiration yéménite ou hassidique – certains d’un ton très allant, plein d’insouciance, d’autres, et c’est plus souvent le cas, d’une émotion contenue, au lyrisme nostalgique d’une grande intériorité. La guitare de P. Jacobi sut se montrer discret donnant simplement à la voix l’arrière plan sonore nécessaire. Ce duo fut une révélation !

Deux autres ensembles figuraient au programme : celui de Hongrie (Musical Balassi) et de Roumanie (Someșul-Napoca de Cluj).
Nous avons déjà signalé les qualités de ces deux groupes et plus particulièrement celui de Roumanie. Leur répertoire choisi avec un goût sûr parmi les productions tant modernes qu’anciennes, fut superbement mis en valeur par un style vivant et juste, une qualité musicale défaillante.

Une excellente soirée

Claude KAROUBI

English translation:


At the Esterno Hotel
A revelation at the benefit concert: the duo ZADOK-JACOBI

The Fêtes de la Vigne are an opportunity for social evenings. Fortunately, they have a double bonus: they are in aid of a charitable cause and they enable us to discover the very beautiful venues we have in our town.

Yesterday evening it was at the Hotel d'Esterno, headquarters of the central district, that a benefit concert was held for the social causes of the armed forces.

Surrounding General Jean Nicolas, commander of the 64th Infantry Division, were all the senior officers of our region. Among them: Colonel Mahlberg, commander of the B A 102; Colonel Houissé, Colonel Leclaire, Colonel Sourel, the chief physician of the Gorlin army hospital, the reserve generals, Messrs de Cointet and Jacob, and Captain Guillaume.

But no uniforms. For once, all were in civilian clothes. Among the other personalities, there was also M. and Mme Levavasseur, Mme Gaston-Gérard, Mme Démarche, M. Koche, etc.


Looking through the programme ... damn, the same groups as on Tuesday... But there was a surprise when Mr Levavasseur announced a change: the planned Czech group had been called to Paris and was replaced by a young Israeli duo: "The Good Life". The lady, Ilana Zadok, a young brunette with black hair and eyes, tastefully sings of the delights of her distant Yemen. The man, Palti Jacobi, a look-alike of Enrico Macias, is a singer-songwriter and guitarist.

This duo conquered the audience with their understated artistry, which fully highlighted the beauty and variety of the melodies - Yemeni or Hassidic in inspiration - some of them very lively and carefree, others, and this was more often the case, of a controlled emotion, with nostalgic lyricism of great introspection. P. Jacobi's guitar was able to be discreet, simply giving the voice the necessary acoustic background. This duo was a revelation!

Two other ensembles were on the programme: one from Hungary (Musical Balassi) and one from Romania (Someșul-Napoca from Cluj).
We have commented on the qualities of these two groups, especially the Romanian one. Their repertoire, chosen with sound judgement from both modern and ancient compositions, was superbly enhanced by a lively and precise style and a musical quality that was much in evidence.

An excellent evening

Claude KAROUBI
