Weekend Playlist: La Vie En Rose

The best thing about listening to Pandora is that I'm constantly discovering new artists that I haven't heard before. I'll give them credit - they really know how to tailor recommendations based on user preferences. Today's artist is a perfect example of someone I've discovered thanks to Pandora.

According to their website, Duo Gadjo offers jazz with a French twist. In addition to their own recording, they are also members of the Hot Club of San Francisco which offers their own take on acoustic jazz.

There are few songs are so quintessentially classic French than La Vie en Rose. It's been recorded a number of times and is considered a standard in French jazz. Here is there take on the classic song. Enjoy.
