The Earful Tower: Paris

The Earful Tower: Figuring out France with guests who know best. 

Nov 28, 2022

Meet Alex Freiman, a Parisian jazz musician.

In this episode, we discus the vibrant jazz scene in Paris and how Alex is bringing live jazz to Paris (most recently via the Blitz Society - a chess/jazz club).

We also talked about how jazz music can lead to life as an outcast, the trouble with how La La Land depicted the Paris jazz scene, and the day the Notre Dame burned down.

We recorded this podcast in the Square René Viviani park beside the Shakespeare and Company bookshop, where Alex works as a bookseller. You'll hear people in the background, the occasional church bell, siren, and the crunch of Parisian gravel under people's feet as they walk past.
