Grand Bal Swing avec L’Esprit Jazz Big Band

The Big Swing Ball of the Festival Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés Paris has now become a fixture of the CCI’s summer programme. Re-live the ambience of the big American jazz bands of the 50s with L’Esprit Jazz Big Band. The thirteen musicians are joined this year by singer Prisca Demarez (Grizabelle in the musical Cats) and guitarist Jean-Michel Kajdan (who has played with Jacques Higelin, Michel Jonasz and Eddy Mitchell) as they revisit classics from the great orchestras of Count Basie, Duke Ellington or Glenn Miller. Swing your skirts, polish your Oxfords and dance around the elegant courtyard of the CCI!  Come dressed up or coiffed in fifties style and you will be eligible for a reduced-price ticket …
