Join our septet of top tier Denver musicians as we explore “The French Connection” in jazz. This eclectic program features the BetterFate Ensemble performing the music of French jazz composers, French popular songs, and French-themed jazz standards. Selections include arrangements of compositions by Django Reinhardt, Michel Legrand, and Michel Petrucciani, plus interpretations of famous French songs including “La Vie En Rose”, inspired by the Grammy winning Dee Dee Bridgewater album “J’ai Deux Amours”. We also offer American standards devoted to Paris, and French versions of American vocal hits. Check out our rendition of “Est-ce Par Hasard” that blends the music of Harold Arlen’s “Let’s Fall In Love” with both English and French lyrics. To all jazz fans and French enthusiasts, come aboard as our mix of cultures and musical styles transports you to the streets of Paris right here in Lafayette, Colorado. The BetterFate Ensemble welcomes you!
