NYBG Chihuly and Jazz

Drawing from Catskill Jazz Factory’s smashing sold-out The French Connection series, this world premiere takes audiences on a journey from the vibrant energy of European swing through the wonders of French mélodie and chanson. Traveling across four decades of Franco-American music, swing to the hot jazz rhythms of Django Reinhardt to the playful melodies of French chanson. Horne’s ensemble pulls influences from traditional folk to Debussy, Ellington, and Porter, to the enchanting French Songbook, from Edith Piaf to Jacques Brel to Serge Gainsbourg.
