Association Je Dis Jazz (W163001034)


The Jazz Café is promoted by Association Je Dis Jazz, a not-for profit organisation, which aims to nurture and promote jazz music in all its many styles.  This new initiative is run by volunteers and is held on the second Thursday of each month at Bar / Restaurant La Cloche, 24300 Abjat-sur-Bandiat.  

The basic part of the evenings is provided by Je Dis Jazz, otherwise known as ‘The House Band’.  Je Dis Jazz is a quintet featuring keyboards, alto and tenor saxophones, drums, guitar and three vocalists playing a selection of swing from the American Songbook interspersed with R&B, all from iconic names such as Ray Charles, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Herbie Hancock, Joe Cocker, Cannonball Adderley, Nat King Cole, Julie London, Ella Fitzgerald and etc.,

Each evening we will introduce guest artists, singers and musicians, who will present their ‘jazz’ credentials for your enjoyment. Some, using the ‘house’ band and some providing their own instrumental accompaniment.  The music will always be ‘Live’.

Over the months we hope to present a wide selection of Jazz styles for you to appreciate. From Mainstream, through Jazz-funk and New Orleans, to Latin-Jazz and everywhere in-between.  We would like to take you on a journey to ‘smokey joints’ with bluesy female singers and mellow instrumental soloing to glitzy nightclubs where the big bands get your feet irresistibly tapping.

Jazz-Café is interested in  making contact with any musician, singer or group within the immense genre called ‘Jazz’ who would like to make a guest appearance at these events. Contact info@cafejazz.fraand give a brief description of your music.  If you can, provide an mp3 file as an example. We will then get in touch with you and discuss the possibilities

La Cloche has a set menu each evening or you may simply prefer to come along, enjoy a drink and listen to the music.
