One day I went to my friend and asked him to licence me his dad’s name so I could open the best jazz bar in Paris. My friend Erin Davis is very chilled having grown up in Malibu and his dad was a great jazz musician who was loved by France, Miles Davis. The bar never happened mainly because sometime you can be too chilled.
Le Tour de France left Switzerland arriving in Chamonix, France where the green grass touches the blue sky’s of heaven. In the French Alps, everyone is settling or moving to wherever they will rest for the night and I do what I do, go explore. Soon I run into a girl who seems to be telling people where to go so I decide to ask her if there are any live music spots in Chamonix?. She informs me that there is a new place for jazz I must check out. I tell her I love jazz, and now that I am in France it will be so cool, because one of my friend’s father what loved by France for his jazz. Without so much as missing a beat while checking her phone she asks me who could that musician be that France loved so much. I tell her Miles Davis. No longer looking at the phone she hits my arm and says, “No, Miles Davis is very famous, and in France if you know music you know Miles Davis”. Well this girl Stephanie turned me on to a few very good things. She would take me around and introduced me to her friends and telling them about Erin, and Miles Davis. The name Miles Davis had this magical effect on people and soon the entire world of Chamonix opened up thanks to Miles Davis.
Before telling you more of what I discovered let me have Erin Davis tell you in his own words about his father Miles Davis, and check out Miles perform live.
La Maison des Artistes, was a magic find all thanks to Stephanie, it is a jazz spot, and a recording studio. The night I showed up Lucile Marchal was playing, check her Lucile out and through this I discovered Balcony TV, where if you if you are a musician you have to perform.
Le Café Comptoir, a restaurant, bar and music was discovered all thanks Miles Davis and jazz and Lucile Marchal as she had made this promotional video for their Cosmo Jazz Festival. Check it out, the jazz festival site here, Cosmo July 23 -31, 2016
We’re sorry but we are forced to cancel the concert tonight because the musicians can only happen to vallorcine due to caravan of the tour de France… When the caravan moves on…. But this is only part discount because Diego and Balthazar: we love them! We will let you know… Kisses to all… – Le Cafe Comptoir
Well as you can see Le Tour de France can sometime get in the way of music, sorry about that Le Cafe Comptoir.
