Short getaways

We’ve taken a couple short getaways the last couple weekends. Part of the reason was to go further east where there is SUN! Until a couple days ago we have been deprived for days and days.

great communication between musicians

First getaway was about 2 hours away-southwest of Toulouse. A small village called Marignac-Lasclares -they have been putting on a jazz weekend called ClariJazz for seven years. We took a gamble on it and had the best time. Saw two fantastic groups and ate homemade couscous with merguez sausage (spicy lamb).

First group: Trio Lobelya– accordionist, Sax, clarinet and bass. WONDERFUL Eastern European music.

sorry about the head in the middle

Second group: Sheik of Swing– Jazzy bluesy music. Guitars, bass and clarinet

The French have such a love for blues and Jazz (and all kinds of music) and the summer is filled with free festivals all over the region.

I’ll post about our other getaway next weekend.┬á Lunch to prepare for 6 guests and the kitchen calls.
