A Decade of Jazz in St-Germain:
For jazz fans, May is the sweetest of months in Paris: the St-Germain-des-Pres Jazz festival brings dozens of talented performers from around the world to some of the city's legendary streets and indoor venues for a series of concerts. Some are even free. St-Germain may be better known for existentialist philosophers grimly pondering the world in cafes rather than for exuberant riffs on the sax, but the now-conservative district takes on an entirely different vibe for the occasion of the annual festival.
