On the occasion of International Jazz Day and to celebrate Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday, the U.S. Embassy in Paris presents a pubic concert at Parc de La Villette with all female jazz vocal trio Sweet System whose exciting new arrangements of Ella’s most famous songs and scats add intricate harmonies and style to the swinging sound of The First Lady of Song’s legacy.
"Certain music, jazz in particular, has the ability to make you a better citizen of the world. It helps you expand your world view and gives you more confidence in your cultural achievements. Improvisational jazz teaches you about yourself while the swing in jazz teaches you how to work with others." - Wynton Marsalis
