Biography by John Bush
Jean-Marc Cerrone was one of the
most influential disco producers
in Europe during the 1970s and
early '80s, eclipsed only by
Giorgio Moroder. Born in Paris
in 1952, he studied music as a
child and won his first post as
the orchestra leader at a
Parisian club at the age of 18.
After additional work with the
French producer Barclay during
the early '70s, he released his
first solo album, Love in
C-Minor, in 1976. The title
track proved a massive European
hit and worked its way into the
American Top 40 as well.
Although he only placed one more
single in the U.S., Cerrone
stayed popular on his native
continent over the course of a
career spanning a dozen albums.
