Les Chauds Lapins (“The Hot Rabbits”), led by New York’s Kurt Hoffman and Meg Reichardt, specialize in a repertoire of French swing from the 1920s through 40s. Their whimsical, sophisticated, and poetic catalog includes numbers popularized by the likes of Mistinguett, Lucienne Boyer, Edith Piaf, and in particular features suave, swing-tinged gems from the enchanted catalog of songs by the great, late Charles Trenet. Kurt and Meg are backed by Karen Waltuch on viola; Garo Yellin on cello, and Andy Cotton on upright bass.
