Acclaimed jazz singer Gabrielle Ducomble brings her inimitable blend of French chanson, tango and bossa to the Jazz Café for an evening of unforgettable music-making. This new show features original songs from her latest album, Across the Bridge, interspersed with her own unique takes on classic chansons by Piaf, Legrand, Brel and Piazzolla.
Influenced by travel and timeless storytelling, Gabrielle takes you on a rich musical journey from the Indonesian rainforest to partying Brazil and the streets of Paris, mixing samba, waltz, hot club-style jazz and African rhythm. Played by an authentic band including guitar virtuoso Nicolas Meier and the outstanding Richard Jones on jazz violin, expect an evening of beautiful melody, inspired musicianship and infectious joie de vivre.
