The story of Jean Sablon's life and career encapsulates some of the major changes in twentieth-century society, transformations that reshaped the art of the chanson while also opening up hitherto undreamed-of possibilities for entertaining an ever-wider public. One of the very first recording stars, Jean Sablon rapidly became a radio personality and was the first French chansonnier to use a microphone in his stage act, so helping to usher in a new era in the world of cabaret singing. New developments in modern transportation also now made it possible for him to perform on every continent, so finding worldwide fame and becoming the best-known French popular singer of his generation. It was Jean Sablon who came to represent the art of French chanson throughout the world.
