Boris Vian Tribute Concert
A tribute to Boris Vian, the French polymath: writer, poet, musician, singer, translator, critic, actor, inventor and engineer. While today he is remembered primarily for his novels, my trio and I will be presenting his jazz compositions in a very special musical performance as a part of the gallery's exhibition opening. Vian was fascinated with jazz: he served as liaison for, among others, Duke Ellington and Miles Davis in Paris, wrote for several French jazz-reviews (Le Jazz Hot, Paris Jazz) and published numerous articles dealing with jazz both in the United States and in France.
