FROM PARIS WITH LOVE: AN EVENING WITH JESSICA FICHOT
Presented by Union Hall World Music & Dance Coffeehouse
January 8, 2011
Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année !!
UNION HALL COFFEEHOUSE IN CARLISLE PRESENTS: PARISIAN CHANTEUSE AND SONGWRITER, JESSICA FICHOT, who is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French-at-heart, but with a soul that is truly international. Her multi-ethnic French/Chinese/American upbringing colors the songs on her debut album. It's called Le Chemin, "The Path," and for good reason: Jessica takes the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, and into the lands of gypsy jazz, Chinese, and Latin American folk music, through the classic American repertoire, and off into the wilderness of her imagination.
Following the success of her first release, JESSICA FICHOT has brought her songs to audiences in France, China, Canada and across the U.S., performing on vocals, accordion and toy piano and backed by an amazing quartet of clarinet/sax/flute, upright bass, guitar and drums.
LA Weekly: "Her songs and voice are delightful, as pure an instrument channeled through lovely evocations of love and love lost as you'll ever hear. The French chanson tradition is alive and well."
FLAVORPILL: ""Her jazzy mezzo-soprano, indie-style accordion, and relaxed backing band light up a program ranging from heartbreaking torch osngs to European supper-club standards."
CA TOUR & TRAVEL: "like a fine pastry: light and tantilizing and irresistable."
PASADENA WEEKLY: "Jessica Fichot melds childlike sweetness and grown-up savoir faire."
REAL TALK L.A.: "a musical excursion"
L.A. JAZZ SCENE: French jazz that is celebratory and full of verve."
SANTA BARBARA NEWSPRESS: "A UNIQUE SOUND THAT BLENDS VINTAGE FRENCH CHANTEUSE-STYLE MUSIC WITH MODERN SINGER-SONGWRITER NOTIONS."
