While at the Place de la Victoire already has the ultimate Friday afternoons-tag-Hup-employed concert, I sit in my office, Jeff admonished to greater labor discipline and craft on to my blog. That day was truly ready for 10 blog entries. Specular, in fact be meeting with Joachim Kühn, one of the great jazz pianist this century, international star with a heart, it the occasion of the inauguration of the ambassador did not take, for us (and only institute for the français , but this is now time does not matter) a concert playing.
