L'espirit Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Jazz may be an American invention, but it immediately - and permanently - found a home in Paris decades ago, especially on the Rive Gauche where jazz will never die.

Afficionados will be flooded with choices as the sixth annual jazz festival descends on venues in Saint Germain des Prés from 9 May until 21 May. Of the events taking place throughout the quartier, these two struck me as quite unique: (a) "Musical ride in 1950s bus touring the left bank," (b) "The French National Jazz Orchestra's tribute to Led Zeppelin."

For more traditional gigs, check the schedule at
Le Festival Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés

The festival will include photo exhibits and will spotlight up-and-coming talent. But, if you can't wait until next week to get a fix of jazz, go to
Jazz à FIP and click on the "écouter" button to soothe your nerves.
