  • Our last "Serge Gainsbourg, Couleur Jazz" concert was a lot of fun!!! Click here for a link to a movie of the performance filmed by French American TV:

    http://www.french-american.tv/movies/brunojazz.htm

    The quintet, features Bruno on guitar, Michael Gold on saxophone, Paul Mindrup on organ, Scott Chapek on bass, and Tom Hassett on drums.

    The idea is to re-work some of our favorite songs by the great French singer/songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, and to interpret them with an instrumental Jazz ensemble.


  • French-American TV featured us on their show in July 2006. For more info go to:
