So Sylvester, I've heard it said that you will return soon to France.
Sylvster: Yes, very soon, I would like to present
a show. I adore this country.
The manner is very nice. Paris is a city fabulous for me.
I: And good, for someone who doesn't speak French, on the contrary,
it is good.
S: So, so, I try.
I: Good. Your new album has become a true hit in all of the French discos.
What is your favorite song?
S: My favorite song is "Don't Stop."
I have worked a lot on this arrangement.
It has very good rhythm, a lot of magic. It is fabulous. I am very content
I: To relate your six days in France, Sylvester, tell us what you do.
S: Present my show, and do a little shopping on
the boulevard St-Michel. I adore shopping in Paris;
the French love a lot of class. And also the Parisian restaurants, they
I: You like therefore the French cuisine. What type of dishes do you
S: I like escargots, beef burgundy, the champagne
I: Of course!
S: It is good. The crepes. I like the French cuisine.
I: But in Paris, how do you know where to go?
S: I am very lucky. The record company Polydor supplied a guide for
me to take me out. I adore Polydor.
I: And "All I Need," your new album, has a sensational cover.
How did you come to choose this image?
S: Ah good, Tony Chiumento, an artist in New York, came up with it from
an idea of mind. Immediately I found it amazing.
I: So, would you like to say something more?
S: Yes, I hope that you will like my music
