La Fête de la Musique




Last year we were all there for the summer solstice, listening to a jazz quartet, enjoying the cool breeze of the evening on the café terrace for my last night in Paris.



Wish I was there today.

Enjoy, my French friends, as I am there in spirit.

Ah, la musique, qui enchate tout la monde!

Pauver Génie, qui n'est pas là. Peut-être l'année prochaine?

Bon mardi, Génie de Paris.

Can imagine !

Ici, à Antibes, plusieurs estrades ont été dressées, et dès 19h, les petits orchestres de Jazz vont jouer, à tour de rôle, à travers la ville: les plages, les remparts, la place principale à côté des jets d'eau...
Beaucoup de rire, de danse, on mangera des frites et on boira à la santé de l'été.

Love jazz, love this face. I hope you do something wonderful on this very long day of light, even if you're not in the city of lights.

A handsome Frenchman..and talented, too! It is rainy and early here and I just remembered that I forgot to set my alarm to meet with some women at 4:30 this am to celebrate summer solstice...darn! Have a good day!!

Parfait ma chère amie! La Fête de la Musique c'est un bon nuit! Just feel the coolness of the evening, watch the sunset (at 10 p.m.) and listen to the smooth, sweet jazz .... Exquisite!

What a perfect way to spend a summer solstice!!!

Starman said...

It's only supposed to be for the one night, but sometimes they just go for the entire week. I hope that's true this year!

Bebe and I love jazz! She is in Italy this week but may return to Paris before the summer's end.

Alexa said...

Sounds like a lovely evening!

He's gorgeous! Nice way to bring on the summer.

Marie-Noyale said...

Doesn't he look French!!!
We have the beautiful night and all the Jazz music we want!

Jack said...

I can just visualize you and your girl friends at this place, swooning as this hottie sang torch songs.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Well, mes amis, I think that Jack just summed it up... Somehow, it was just not the same tonight. It is hot here, the wine was good, the music blasting through an iPod, no café chairs, and Mr. Hottie here was probably crooning in Paris somewhere...

Tant pis pour moi... (just kidding - I have my own and there wasn't any smoke)
