Bobby FEW is the American pianist who, at the beginning of the 80s, played at the Duc des Lombards which at the time was a small bar called the 'Bar de l'Etoile' where an upright piano was enthroned under the stairs .
According to Bobby, here are the 5 ingredients to make a real jazz club:
-A good piano
-A broad-minded owner for creative music
-A public that listens well
-A place where musicians can go after the concert to relax or enjoy improvising.
-The proximity of people
This is why for almost 40 years, the Duc des Lombards has been the essential club in Paris.
These 5 principles are the cornerstones of this club, which is capable of welcoming the biggest names in jazz to its stage thanks to its excellent piano and allows the young generation of French musicians to play together during the Duke's jam sessions.
Decorated by the American designer Elliot Barnes, the Duc des Lombards has become the Parisian benchmark for jazz clubs offering more than 300 concerts each year at 7.30pm and 10pm from Monday to Saturday and its free jam sessions every Friday and Saturday from 11.30pm.
