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.
"Jazz is indefinable. To understand jazz, you need to merge yourself with its pulse and lose yourself to its sounds and let it flood your soul. It is the most democratic form of music: it has taken the sounds, movements and cadences of whatever form of music from whichever countries it travelled to." - Shankar Mahadevan
