Last night at BELLE epoque:
after sitting down to a delicious meal of trout, rooster and pork, followed up with a blood orange sorbet, I serenaded the winers and diners with a handful of my favourite wintery songs about such weighty topics as blues, hearts, paris, girls, mornings, nights and moons.
This was for the inaugural night of RECORD TURNOVER, the new moniker of my dj partner in crime. He is sort of like the conjurer and I his able bodied assistant, who is willing to be sawed in half.
A list of the tunes I selected lies below, and if you weren't able to make it and the tracklisting tickles your fancy and piques your interest, or if you would just like to re-live the experience one more time, you can even add 'blah blah' to your own music collection by following this LINK.
