MARTI'S BIRTHDAY FESTIVAL SEPTEMBER 21, 2013 CHAMPAGNE & JAZZ PARTY
Marti’s celebration continued this evening with a host of friends who joined us for jazz and Champagne at the Café Laurent.
We arrived early for a rendezvous with Alyce and John and solo piano sets by our dear friend Christian Brenner.
After the cocktail hour piano sets, the four of us – along with Glaucia, Christian and Edouard – walked up rue Dauphine to Xin Gainian for a quick Asian-Fusion dinner. Then it was time for the Main Event: the Christian Brenner Quartet featuring Guillaume Naturel (tenor sax, flute), Olivier Robin (drums) and Bruno Schorp (bass).
While we were at dinner Flavien, our pal and bar manager extraordinaire, set the VIP Section with Champagne and flutes. Tiny bubbles and our other guests awaited us. That’s Linda behind the bucket.
