Cognac: when France has a passion for jazz and blues (30 June – 6 July 2014)

In Festivals, jazz on June 16, 2014 at 10:25 pm

Dear Friends,

Sarah Letor, a Belgian jazz singer with a lot of oomph, informed me of her participation on the Cognac Jazz Festival in France.

I’m sure that some of you know the historical spirit drink that has made this city (of less than 20 000 inhabitants) so famous. Now you have a second reason to visit it ! For its 21 edition , the accent will be put on blues. Incredible talents will be on stage: the GREAT George Benson, Steven Seagal, the incredible Leyla McCalla (Haitian-New Orleans-Cajun heritage), Taj Mahal well known for his senor blues, and many many others…

Please look at the program, you will definitely fall in love with France! I know that it’s during the Mundial of Football… but in France we have electricity AND digital TV’s :-). No excuses !

Enjoy,

Céline

Jazz Club in Helsinki (Finland): Happy Jazz Club Storyville

In Jazz Clubs on March 20, 2013 at 10:16 pm

Dear friends,

What a pleasure I had last week to discover this Jazz Club in Helsinki. On a corner, you get in, then go downstairs and surprise ! Live jazz from 10 pm until…… and in front of the band, a dance floor waits for your steps. After looking at the menu (made as a vinyl record sleeve) I took a diner which was a mix between Italian-Creole-Cajun food. Excellent. You know that this blog wants to promote jazz clubs where you feel like home. This place is one of them ! For sure ! People who are working in this club are very kind and welcome you as they know you for years. The music manager is a musician and the bands are chosen following a high sense of quality and entertainment.

The site of Happy Jazz Storyville is in Finnish but if you want to know the program, do not hesitate to ask !

club@storyville.fi

It is one of my warmest recommendations of the year ! You only have to travel to Finland 🙂 !

Enjoy
