May 12 – Avalon Jazz Band
Avalon Jazz Band represents the Parisian and Golden Age swing spirit in New York City, with a repertoire of timeless American standards and French jazz songs: old classics with a hot twist celebrating France, love and music.
As two musicians involved in the New York swing renaissance, Tatiana Eva-Marie and Adrien Chevalier wanted to share their experience of French jazz with their American audience, and that’s how Avalon Jazz Band was born.
The music of Avalon Jazz Band is inspired by the Parisian jazz scene of the 1940’s, which emblematic sound was made popular by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli. They perform the American standards popular in France at that period, but also the songs of French composers influenced by that new sound called « jazz ». In addition to these classics, Avalon Jazz Band also performs the original music written by their vocalist Tatiana Eva-Marie, who offers her own vision of what contemporary swing can be, blending her francophone culture into her American experience.
“Congratulations on your superb musical performance! …the audience was enchanted!“ – François Delattre, US French Ambassador
