After the success of ‘Klassik meets Jazz’ (Vol. 1: ED 20177, Vol. 2: ED 20537) and ‘Tango meets Jazz’ (ED 20878), the composer and arranger Uwe Korn now presents a volume of pieces about Paris.
‘Paris in Blue’ contains not only many new versions of classics like ‘Les Champs-Élysées’, ‘Sous le ciel de Paris’, ‘I Love Paris’, ‘Petite Fleur’, ‘Milord’ and others, but also several new compositions of his own like ‘Old French Jazz Piano Suite’ the four movements of which – Allemande, Courante, Sarabande and Gigue – bridge the gap between Bach’s French Suites and modern jazz.
Artists included in this edition include Charles Baudelaire (‘Les Fleurs du Mal’), Heinrich Heine, Esmeralda, Inspector Maigret, Erik Satie and are united by one thing: the love of France. Bon divertissement!
