Zaz: Jazz et la Chanson
If your livelihood depends on the people in the street, which is the case when you earn your money as a street musician in Paris, you’d better find out what your audience wants to hear. If you’re able to enthrall audiences from as far off as Siberia and Egypt with songs made famous by Edith Piaf, you must have embraced the true soul of chanson. And if, even after climbing the Mont Blanc, you still have the energy to sing and jam at the peak, then the sleepless nights of show business will leave you unharmed. It is unusual to find all these qualities united in one person, yet the French vocalist Zaz does! Born in 1980 in Tours in the Loire Valley, Zaz revives French chanson. In this Baloise Session from Basel, Switzerland, Zaz gives the music all its original impact, lending it new expressions, and infusing it with her charming nonchalance, backed up by her extensive and varied stage experience.

Legends of Jazz: American Songbook
With the exception of DJAZZ.tv, there is hardly any jazz on television. Jazz pianist and broadcaster Ramsey Lewis has addressed this vacuum with his programme series ‘Legends of Jazz’. This interesting series brings together musicians who are not usually paired. Today’s episode is all about the American Songbook. From the 1930s to the 1950s, American songwriters created an unequalled body of work we now call ‘The American Songbook’. Many of these tunes have become ‘standards’, which are linked forever to the jazz and pop singers who gave them life. Guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli and top jazz singer Jane Monheit discuss with Ramsey Lewis what jazz has taken from (and given to) the great American popular song composers, from Irving Berlin to Gershwin and beyond. John Pizzarelli and Jane Monheit sing both separately and in duet to demonstrate why they are as well-loved as are the songs they perform... and why this great music continues.

Music Machine: Hammond & Steel
Drummer, percussionist, and bandleader Lucas van Merwijk stands for ardent, exotic swing. He has been at the forefront of the European jazz, Latin, and percussion scenes for more than 25 years. He has been playing Cuban music for many years, usually in large ensembles such as ‘Nueva Manteca’ and his 20-piece ‘Cubop City Big Band’. In the period 1993-2013, Van Merwijk was elected 'Best Jazz Drummer' several times in the Benelux by the readers of ‘De Slagwerkkrant’, the Dutch magazine for drummers and percussionists. His work in the field of world music earned him the prestigious Global Act Award 2010. For this performance of Van Merwijk’s Music Machine, the percussionist invited hammond organ player Carlo de Wijs. De Wijs is known for expanding the expressive possibilities of the Hammond organ. The revolutionary steel pan player Konkie Halmeyer adds Caribbean spices to the mix. On top of this, the jack-of-all-trades Roberto Vizcaino – a true giant in Latin percussion – was flown in from Cuba to join the band!

Parisian Roots Reggae: Danakil
During every late July since 1998, the French Gironde swings to the rhythms of reggae when the Reggae Sun Ska Festival takes place near Bordeaux. The ever-growing festival contributes to the fact that the reggae genre, which has roots in Jamaica, has become inseparable from the popular music of today. Reggae has roots in ska and rocksteady, two music genres that in turn derive from soul and rhythm-and-blues. The bass and drum provide ‘riddim’, the typical drum and bass accent that’s such an instantly recognizable element of reggae music. Reggae is closely related to the Rastafari belief of Jamaica. Each year, the French festival presents the biggest names in reggae - and DJAZZ brings the special rhythms of reggae to your living room! In this episode, DJAZZ broadcasts a concert of the French roots reggae band Danakil, which was formed in 2000 by a group of Parisian college students.

Live in Paradiso: Le Freak, c'est…
"Le Freak, c'est chic". Words that are enough to fill up a dance floor. By the time Chic appeared in the late '70s, disco was already slipping into the excess that eventually caused its downfall. Chic bucked the trend by stripping disco's sound down to its basic elements. The band’s sound was anchored by the scratchy, James Brown-style rhythm guitar of Nile Rodgers and the indelible bass lines of Bernard Edwards. As producers, they used keyboard and string embellishments economically, which kept the emphasis on rhythm. There can be little argument that Chic was disco's greatest band – their funky grooves, stylish detailing and overall sense of rhythm and simplicity in a time of campy excess made many of their songs memorable as well as danceable. During this show recorded at one of Europe’s top venues, Paradiso Amsterdam, the members of Chic play their all-time classics!
