The musician rose to prominence in the late 60s, with his self-titled LP. But it was his beguiling 1979 hit Un Gelato Al Limon that gained him widespread attention, followed up tracks like Sparring Partner, Via Con Me, Come Di, Una Giornata Al Mare.
Conte been many things over his 78 years: poet, lawyer, painter, and teacher, he sings in French, English, Spanish and Italian. His music is equally various: he can just as easily rile up his audience with a fandango as weave a yearning French chanson. and R&B, swing, cabaret, 30s jazz and honky-tonk all have their place in his repertoire.
