It’s A Good Day from Cyrille Aimée (Photo by Anna Webber)

As a young girl in the northern French town of Samois, vocalist Cyrille Aimée fell in love with the vibrant local music scene. You may be familiar with Samois as it is the home of another jazz great, guitarist Django Reinhardt, whose gypsy jazz virtuosity Aimée has carried into the modern era. 

These days, Aimee calls Brooklyn her home. Immersed in the New York scene, she's developed a unique approach to jazz. On her new album, Aimee's influences are apparent, as she blends the American songbook with her French-Dominican roots. This fusion is evident on several tracks from her new record, including her standout interpretation of Duke Ellington's "Caravan".

I have already gotten much joy from the Jonathan Channel. Somehow, I have been accessing it online at without
realizing that there was a page with lots of "content" (sorry).

It seems to me there should be a prominent link from the plain jane songlist to the more interactive page that led me to this comment page and whatnot.

I am on the email newsletter already.
