Paris Chansons
French & Russian Classics

Paris Chansons is LA’s premier French and international band, known for their original renditions of French favorites from Aznavour, Brel, Dassin, Piaf, Montand to contemporary artists like Zaz. Their exhilarating performances are punctuated by traditional jazz standards in addition to classics in Russian, Italian, and other languages. Four multilingual singers bring an unparalleled diversity to their shows. Superb musicianship anchors the ensemble, moving from jazzy improvisation, to slow-burning balladry, to blistering gypsy fervor.  Paris Chansons takes you an a journey without having to leave your seat (except, of course, to dance!).  


February 17, 2018, 5PM - 6:30 PM
Peter Kavanaugh Quartet
American Jazz Standards

Guitarist Peter Kavanaugh’s heart and soul are firmly rooted in jazz standards and the American songbook — an accessible repertoire he interprets with a hip and sophisticated 60s West Coast Cool Jazz sound based in electric guitar and vibraphone. His sunny sound transports listeners to poolside post-war Southern California, and surprises with unexpected elements of bossa nova, blues, bop, and gypsy jazz.
