Boris Vian's Jazz

This series took place onFrom to

In the twentieth century, few figures have shown such a versatile creative force as Boris Vian (1920-1959). Apart from being a novelist, playwright, poet, journalist, translator and engineer, Vian was a trumpeter, jazz critic, composer and lyricist. This series reviews his multi-faceted relationship to jazz from different angles: a concert featuring chansons written and composed by Vian, another consisting of the repertory he liked to perform as a trumpeter and a third focusing on the figure of Miles Davies, whom the novelist praised in numerous reviews.
