I'm french, and I know very well the french version of "la mer", by the littles rabbits (I got the album "dans les faux-puits..." since... about 10 years) but, I have to admit that I've never heard the jazz butcher's version (but I will, for sure).
I like a lot this song. But, "dans les faux-puits..." is an old disc, now, so, I don't listen this song very often.
anyway, I'm happy to know that you are intersted by this band.
sorry for my english.
ps: "non cé domani", é italiano. ;)
