“La Vie en Rose” (jazzy version)


Jason (on YouTube as Jason Lux Music) began Suzuki piano lessons at age 4, which blended classical instruction with ear training to form his musical foundation. Jason has grown his abilities through jamming with his family and friends, and through learning to improvise by ear. In contrast to his classical roots, his style and repertoire have evolved into a mix of improvisations on the best songs from the last 100 years. Pop, rock, hip-hop, international, and funk music share the stage with jazz and showtune favorites, making his style enjoyable for a wide audience.

Jason was homeschooled through the end of high school, which gave him time to continue in piano and music production. Continuing his education while living in Seattle, he earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in engineering while still pursuing music, photography, and videography.

Jason now plays regularly in Seattle’s most prestigious restaurants and at many corporate events, wed TVdings, and fundraisers. He is a PhD student in engineering, working in a research lab during the day and playing music in the evenings. Recently, he has begun posting frequent cover videos on his YouTube channel, and plans to expand his home studio to produce more original music.

Breakfast Crepes – The Boston Fit

Looking for something to make for breakfast? These crepes are quick and easy to make.

Whole Foods sells these French Crepe shells by Jacquet that are delicious and really convenient for those of you who love crepes but do not want to go through the struggle of making crepe batter to make only one crepe. They’re also only about 100 calories per crepe.

I typically heat up the crepe in the toaster oven for a minute or so before putting my food on it and then everything is ready to go!

Now for the inside filling, it’s just eggs, mozzarella cheese, and broccoli. I used about 2 eggs per person. I added ground pepper to the egg mix and then I put about a small handful of mozzarella cheese and half a handful of chopped broccoli in the egg. That’s basically it! It’s very filling and you start your day with tons of protein thanks to the broccoli and eggs!

“MA SEULE AMOUR de RAI/My only love of RAI”

“MA SEULE AMOUR de RAI/My only love of RAI”

Laurent Voulzy – Ma Seule Amour

Je n’ai plus rien, à me réconforter,
Qu’un souvenir pour retenir liesse,
Ma seule amour, ma seule amour.

Stay away from the door, it’s locked forever,
Write a song, no other way to reach your lover x2

Ma seule amour, ma joie et ma Maîtresse,
Puisqu’il me faut loin de vous demeurer,
Je n’ai plus rien, à me réconforter,
Qu’un souvenir pour retenir liesse.

Ma seule amour, ma seule amour.

En allégeant par Espoir ma détresse,
Me conviendra le temps ainsi passer,
Ma seule amour, ma joie et ma Maîtresse,
Puisqu’il me faut loin de vous demeurer.

Stay away from the door, it’s locked forever,
Write a song, no other way to reach your lover x2

Car mon las coeur, bien garni de tristesse,
S’en est voulu avec vous aller,
Et ne pourrai jamais le recouvrer
Jusqu’ou verrai votre belle jeunesse.

Ma seule amour, ma seule amour.

Stay away from the door, it’s locked forever,
Write a song, no other way to reach your lover x2

Stay away, stay away.

Ma seule amour, ma seule amour.

(Merci à Eric Kamara pour cettes paroles)

His major French hits also include ‘Le Soleil Donne’ – sung in French, English and Spanish – and ‘Les Nuits Sans Kim Wilde’ (‘Nights without Kim Wilde’), inspired by the chart-topping English singer.

The song was released as a single and was also included on The Corrs‘ greatest hits album Dreams: The Ultimate Corrs Collection.

Voulzy recorded in 2007 a duet with the French guitarist Jean-Pierre Danel on his hit album Guitar Connection 2. The song hit the French charts at No. 7 in 2008.
