Jazz in St. Germain - a weekly event at the Hotel D'Aubusson

Well, I'm not much for smooth jazz, but these two have a lovely sound and technique, and if one is going to be relaxed and calmed by beautiful sounds in a lovely environment, there is not much better place then the centre of St. Germain de Pres, in the centre of Paris.  (St. Germain is really the heart of 'perfect Paris'... it is another world from where I live way up in the north of the city, on the other side of Sacre Coeur.  Up here we talk about going 'into Paris', - a ten minute trip -  when we need go to St. Germain)

Christian Brenner is a pianist and vibraphonist who has a weekly gig at the Cafe Laurent at the Hotel D'Aubusson (one of Simone de Beauvoir's old accomodations - pretty classy, Simone!).

On December 4th Christian's guest will be the lovely vocalist Isabelle Carpentier.  I think these two might make some beautiful music together.
