Jazz, fireworks & Edith Piaf

I'm off to visit bull-fighting country this weekend, here are some sights I've seen over the past month.

Last week we were at the Nice Jazz Festival-not so much jazz on offer but some great soul, funk & blues acts. We saw Isaac Hayes perform a great rendition of the 'Shaft theme'. Sly Stone was on his last legs but his 'Family' were superb & 'King' Solomon Burke is something else! I couldn't draw this guy fat enough-they literally wheeled him on stage behind a curtain & plonked him down on his golden throne!

Mougins village-gorgeous little hill village with an interesting photography museum containing André Villers' shots of Picasso.

The temporary exhibition displays Chiara Samugheo's pictures of the golden age of Cinécitta Studio. Check out Federico Fellini giving Sophia Loren the old Italian charm!
