Margot Sergent, jazz singer, harpist and songwriter, together with the virtuoso guitar melodies, by Leandro Pellegrino, began her set with the theme song (“The Windmills of Your Mind”) from “The Thomas Crown Affair” as a homage to the great French composer, Michael Legrand who recently passed away. Her lyrical voice, with a native French accent, is perfect for a set of French and American chanson from the 1930s and 1940s. Included are the familiar touchstones of French chanson, Brel, Aznavour’s, La Boheme and Je Ne Regrette Rien. No set would be complete without Edith Piaf’s musical imprint, “Padam” and “Le Vie en Rose”, depicting the highly emotional lyrics of heartbreak and tragedy, as only the French can express. Margot, a classically trained harpist, transitioned into jazz and now characterizes her music as “poetical swing”. She regularly performs at the Club Bonafide with her group “So French Cabaret”.
