The Jazz Fauré Project:au bord de l'eau

A cabaret confection of French Impressionism and American Jazz
We're singing in a Renoir painting and giving the 19th century hit-tunes of Gabriel Fauré the velvet treatment-from swing to bossa, from wistful ballad to snappy joie de vivre. For classical music and jazz lovers alike!

Performed by some of Chicago's finest jazz musicians and cabaret singers -arrangers Dennis Luxion and Bobby Schiff on piano, Jim Cox on bass, Tim Davis on drums, Jerry DiMuzio and Tim McNamara on flute, clarinet and saxophone, singers Sean Harris and Claudia Hommel.
