if you come soon in Paris, you'll benefit from the jazz festival season.
For instance, from June the 9th to July the 29th occurs the Paris Jazz festival. It consists in concerts every saturday in the most beautiful parc in the town... and its free! here the link http://www.parisjazzfestival2007.fr
Aside from this, there are plenty of places to listen to Jazz. In The 'Rue des lombards' street you'll find 3 scenes: http://www.ducdeslombards.fr for example...
Last year, Rick Margitza used to play every thuesday 21h30 at this place:
Rue de la Grange aux belles
I'm not sure for now, the more so as the moutin reunion quartet is beginning a tour very soon in USA...
These are great recommendations. Thanks. Is there much of interest going on in cafe settings as well? Back in Portugal we used to do a lot of cafe concertos. A lot of times these would take place in municipal cultural center cafes or places like those. Is there a reasonable equivalent in France?
I'm definitely going to check out the Moutin Reunion Quartet. Sounds fantastic.
It's much easier for me to read French than speak it, but I have some friends from Haiti who are helping me learn. If you meet a near-sighted American speaking Haitian creole then you'll know that's me.
