Un petit moment de douceur française. A little night music to accompany your favorite Jean Reno moments perhaps...

About the Album

Nuit Bleue De L'Automne . Lyrics :Jacques Roure et Iza Loris,Music Daniel Roure Daniel Roure’s continues to move in a jazz-minded direction on his 2016 single “Dans la Nuit Bleue.” In French, “Dans la Nuit Bleue” means “During the Blue Night.” The melody is clearly swing-flavored, and one hears Roure using Duke Ellington’s name, mentioning George Gershwin’s standard “Summertime” and using the English-language term “blue note.” “During the Blue Night” describes a female pianist who Roure encounters in a piano bar. She is playing instrumental versions of Ellington songs on an acoustic piano; Roure requests “Summertime,” saying, “Je le chanterai pour vous” (“I would sing it for you”). Notice that Roure uses the polite “vous” instead of “toi”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
