PARISIAN BORN CHANTEUSE AND JAZZ INSTRUMENTALISTMARGOT SERGENT RETURNS TO BIRDLAND THEATER WITHTHE EDITH PIAF EXPERIENCE, WITH HER JAZZ QUARTETDuring the first years of her professional career, Margot Sergent performed worldwide throughout her native France as a classically-trained harp player in national orchestras and chamber groups in prestigious venues such as Olympia, Carnegie Hall, and Wienermusikverein.By the time she moved from Paris to New York City in 2015, Sergent had also become a jazz vocalist and the leader of her own group called So French Cabaret, ultimately performing residencies in prominent jazz clubs such as Club Bonafide and Jules Bistro, as well as the Albertine Library at the French Embassy and the Air France-sponsored Central Park Marathon.In November 2019, Sergent made her debut with So French Cabaret at the prestigious Birdland Theaterand it was a bold and stunning one, as she offered a French neo-trad jazz fusion of the songbook of the iconic French singer Edith Piaf. Featuring Pat Brennan on guitar, Alec Safy on bass, Grammy awarded Linus Wyrsch on clarinet, and Sergent on harp, this Parisian-born chanteuse will offer renditions of Piaf classics such as Hymne a LAmour, Padam, Padam, Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, and, of course, La Vie En Rose, with the unique jazz harp language she developed during her international musical journey.Edith Piaf was jazz, observes Sergent. She lived her life as an improvisation. She thought out the bumps of her life through blue notes. It would be easy to have a vision of Piaf as a dramatic and difficult diva, due to a shortcut between the dramatic narrative of her most known songs and the singer, but when I immersed myself into her and her music, I discovered a witty storyteller and an activist before the word existed. Piaf was a resilient free spirit and a wise soul. My heartdirected me to her and she has changed my musical vision and goals so I love bringing her immense source of inspiration through this show, and invite the audience to discover more about her soulful legacy.Margots live performances convey a physical delight in playing music as well as an artists sensitivity to the complicated harmonies and rhythms of jazz, says legendary jazz saxophonist Archie Shepp, who collaborated with Sergent while they toured with Brazilian jazz band leader Monica Passos. She is a musician of superb instincts, capable of expressing profound human experiences with a wholly original voice.
